Queen’s Transplant Center requires that you have a caregiver for post-transplant care. This means someone, usually a family member or friend, who is willing to be with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for a period of one (1) month after transplant in order to provide care for you. This person will need to be with you to learn about taking care of your organ, what foods you are allowed to eat, what medications you will take and when to call for help.

If you do not have a family member or friend who is able to take care of you, you will have to hire help. Insurance does not cover caregivers. Please contact a transplant social worker if you are unable to find someone to help and need to hire someone.

Queen’s Transplant Center does not support the use tobacco/nicotine, illegal drugs, or narcotics not prescribed by a physician in transplant candidates as this compromises your health and graft function, and may lead to complications. Tobacco/nicotine includes cigarettes, cigars, pipes, kreteks, electronic cigarettes, nicotine patches, and any other smokeless tobacco.

If you are being evaluated for Liver Transplant, you must abstain from alcohol both now and after transplant, as this can severely damage your organ and your health.

“Illegal drugs” includes any and all forms of the following substances: marijuana, synthetic marijuana, cocaine, heroin and opiates, “ice” or crystal meth, or any other substances not prescribed by your physician. Even if you have a medical marijuana card, your insurance company may not cover you for transplant if you are using it.

If you are using any substances, you may be declined for transplant or referred for substance abuse counseling and/or a formal rehabilitation program. If you need help in quitting substances, you may contact the following resources or a transplant social worker for more information, at (808) 691-8897.
