Plan for transportation home

Your child may be sleepy or a bit uncomfortable on the drive home. You may find it helpful to have 2 adults for the drive so one can take care of your child.

If you usually travel by bus, please ask a friend or family member to drive you home. The hospital staff can also help you arrange a taxi if you need one.

In case your child throws up (vomits), have a sealable container or plastic bag and tissues for the ride home. For example, a 4L ice cream pail or large sealable freezer bag.​
