Interesting, are you in the US? East coast?

In CA, there are some regulations that require Botox and LIS be done in a hospital. But honestly, they just numb your butt and do a little cut, so it's really completely unnecessary to have the hospital prep. I was happy to be sedated because of anxiety but I think it's unnecessary as long as they numb you.
