Children and Special Needs Adults

Special Care For Children
The age of patients being cared for at Corpus Christi Endoscopy Center is for those that are 18 years old and over. We do not perform procedures on children.


Special Care For Special Needs Adults
We understand that loved ones who depend upon others for daily living require special attention. Besides the guidelines in the Before My Surgery and Day of Surgery, the following tips, will help make care for these adults easier:

Consent
The legal guardian needs to sign the consent for surgery and anesthesia on or before the day of surgery.

For Admission
Please bring the patient’s recent health history and medication information. Be certain to follow the food and drink rules in the Before My Surgery section.

Personal Attendant
As with other patients, special needs patients require a parent, legal guardian or other responsible adult to remain at the center from admission through recovery. A personal attendant will be required to stay with the patient for 24 hours after discharge.
