The Day of Surgery

University Hospitals Prentiss Pediatric Surgery Center Answers Patient Questions and Calms Concerns

University Hospitals Prentiss Pediatric Surgery Center doctors and staff understand that the day of surgery can be stressful for children and their family members. Our expert team tries to give people all the needed facts before surgery.

From checking in to going in the operating room, we want to make the surgical process as smooth as possible. At UH Prentiss Pediatric Surgery Center, patient and family comfort and peace of mind are among our top priorities.

Parking

Please park in the Rainbow Parking Garage located on Adelbert Road. There is a walkway from the basement of this parking garage which leads directly into Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital.

The hospital will provide one discount parking pass per patient on the day of surgery. The maximum daily rate with the parking discount is $6. Without the discount the maximum daily parking cost is $12.

Check In

The patient and family should arrive at UH Prentiss Pediatric Surgery Center two hours before the patient’s scheduled procedure time and check in at the Admitting Desk located on the first floor of University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

After checking in, the family will go to the UH Prentiss Pediatric Surgery Center waiting area located on the second floor of University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. Once the child’s name is called by one of our UH Prentiss Pediatric Surgery Center staff, he or she and up to two family members will be taken into the preoperative area.

The Pre-Op Area

Two parents or visitors will be allowed to stay with the patient in the pre-op area.

There are circumstances which may delay a patient’s surgery time; staff will do their best to keep the family updated with any changes.
