What not to bring to surgery
At Banner Thunderbird Children’s Center, it is our goal to make sure your child has the most positive hospital experience possible.
For your child’s safety, certain items are not allowed in the operating room. These include:
- Nail polish
- Jewelry (including any piercings)
Please remove these items prior to coming Banner Thunderbird. If your child wears glasses or contacts, please bring with you the proper storage containers to store with you during surgery.
If you have other children, please make plans for childcare. Other children may not be allowed to visit all pre- or post-op areas and we want you to be able to focus on your child that day.
