As Col Klink and others have suggested I contacted a home healthcare service provider and these are my findings.
There is surgery aftercare available 24/7/365. The serivce will provide transportation to and from the facility, standby during the procedure, and most important, be the "responsible party" to sign out the patient.
The service dosen't appear to be covered under my insurance but the costs are : 2 hours $59.00, 3 hours $69.00, 4 hours or more $18.00 per hour. Transportation costs .50/mile if the caregivers vehicle is used. If the patients vehicle is used there is no mileage charge and the caregiver has seperate insurance to cover the patients vehicle.
The healthcare service has been in business for 27 years so I would assume to be relatively reliable and stable.
This may be a FSA eligible expense but I'll have to research it further.
This appears to meet all the requirements I've been looking for but would require testing.
Wonderful! Glad to hear that you have found a solution to this problem.
