    We permit a family member or friend to join you in our recovery room when possible. In order to prevent overcrowding we must limit visitors to one person at peak times. Therefore we ask that you not bring children or others who cannot remain unattended in the waiting room.

    We want to be particularly responsive to the needs of children and want you to understand that they will be cared for by our recovery room nurses. Parents will be encouraged to come into the recovery room to be with the child as soon as possible.
