Inova care sites are open – Your health is our priority

All Inova sites are open and serving patients. However, the global IT outage has affected some Inova technology systems. As patient safety is our top priority, we have taken measures to limit the impact to patient care while we work to fully restore standard operations.

Children's Sedation Services

Inova L.J. Murphy Children's Hospital pediatric intensivists provide sedation services to children in a dedicated pediatric sedation and procedure suite. This is available to children undergoing procedures such as bone marrow aspiration, peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line insertion or other beside procedures where sedation supports the child and improves testing results. Nurses with special sedation education and a Child Life specialist also assist with this service.
