Pediatric Patients

  • One or both parents (or guardians) must remain at Lafayette Surgicare while the child is at our facility.
  • A parent (or guardian) must sign release permits for surgery if the child is under 18.
  • Guardians must bring written proof of guardianship on the day of surgery; without this documentation, surgery may be delayed.
  • We encourage you to bring your child’s favorite toy for extra comfort.
  • Children may be brought in wearing their pajamas. Please bring an empty bottle or sippy cup if your child can’t drink from a cup. Bring formula as a second choice if juice is not preferred.
  • Please leave children not having surgery at home.
  • Please bring with you any forms from your physician (if requested).
