The nurses provide holistic care for infants through older adolescents that are undergoing procedures that require moderate or deep sedation. We work closely with our hematology-oncology as well as anesthesia providers to provide care prescribed by the protocols required by their illness. Additional patient populations include sedated hearing tests, EEG, Echocardiogram, Liver and Renal Biopsy, biotherapy and chemotherapy infusions, and blood product transfusions. All staff is also cross trained to the Pediatric Pre-op and PACU.
The department has two locations: the first within the Pediatric Surgery Center at Inova Fairfax Medical Center (IFMC), the second is located in the Inova Schar Cancer Institute (ISCI). All staff will be trained and required to float between both locations. The IFMC location is open 0730 until 1900 Monday through Friday. The ISCI location will be open from 0730 to 1600 Monday through Friday beginning in April of 2019.
