Instructions for the Driver

on May 19, 2015



  1. Don’t drop off your friend or family having surgery and come back later with a bacon burger in your hand.

  3. Don’t go “Ooh, that needle looks so big!” right before I start the IV.

  5. Once we pre-sedate, don’t talk so much.

  7. If you are going to cry, make some excuse and step outside.

  9. And the most important instruction: When they are in surgery, yes, please grab a bite of food and something to drink…

having to call the Emergency Response Team because you passed out during their recovery period is so not cool.
