Ideas That Work: Quick and Easy Kid-Friendly Touches

Outpatient Surgery Editors


Kid Friendly

Here are 2 great ways to put your younger patients at ease on the day of surgery. We give our pediatric patients stickers to decorate their anesthesia facemasks. They decorate the mask in pre-op, practice breathing into it and take it with them back to surgery. We also decorated the walls of our unrestricted areas with peel-and-stick vinyl decals of fun characters and superheroes.
