A responsible adult over 18 years of age must accompany the patient to the clinic and remain there throughout the procedure. Following the sedation, a responsible adult must escort the patient home, and a responsible adult should stay with the patient until fully awake.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany minors (persons under 18 years of age).
Unless specifically directed otherwise, patients must adhere to the following instructions:
For intravenous sedation, patients should wear clothing that is not restricted to the neck or arms. Patients should wear loose-fitting tops on which you can roll the sleeves to the shoulder. An old t-shirt is ideal.
Following the sedation, patients should refrain from driving an automobile, drinking alcohol, or engaging in any activity that requires alertness until at least the next day or until the patient is fully recovered from the effects of the sedation drugs. This time frame may vary from patient to patient. Do not take any medications for pain unless prescribed by Dr. Behrents.
You must not be left alone for the first 6 hours after sedation. Your escort will verify, with their signature, the responsibility for staying with you. Please inform them.
**FAILURE TO FOLLOW ANY OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN THE CANCELLATION OF THE SEDATION APPOINTMENT**
