The Potential Issues

As we mentioned before, reading our surgery center policy manual can help you better understand some of the potential issues that may arise during your visit with us.


For example, we do not allow anyone to have an alcoholic beverage within 24 hours of surgery. This is so that someone does not experience any type of bleeding or vomiting after the procedure. If you’re thinking about having a drink before your procedure, please talk to our staff before doing so in order to avoid any problems.



Privacy


Privacy is a major concern for many people, and we feel that way too. The first thing you will see when you read our policy manual is a privacy policy. You can learn about the HIPAA law that we have in place, which means we will protect your medical information from being released to unauthorized people without your knowledge or consent.


Financial Coverage

One of the most important things you will want to know is what your insurance coverage is. This will help you if you ever have a question about what a specific procedure will cost, or if it will be covered. The same goes for financial assistance, which can also be found in our policy manual.


If you're preparing for surgery, it's important to know everything you can about it before the day of your appointment. Our policy manual covers all the different things that could go wrong during surgery and how we would handle them. It also covers our patient care team and how they would assist in this situation.


We want our patients to be as informed as possible before they come into contact with us. This way, when they do come into contact with us, they are more comfortable and understand what's happening every step along the way.



Pain Management

Pain management is the fifth most important reason you should read our surgery center policy manual. This section deals with things like post-operative pain and how your pain history may affect your surgery. We also address preemptive analgesia in this section. This is a particular type of therapy that involves giving a patient drugs before they have surgery to help them manage their pain better and avoid suffering from chronic pain after their operation.


A lot can go wrong on the day of your surgery, and it’s important that you are prepared for the worst. The more information you have about the procedure, the better position you’ll be in to handle any complications that might arise. Reading our policy manual will not only give you an idea of what we offer at our facility but also what could happen while you're here.



Post-Operative Instructions

As a patient of ours, you will be expected to follow post-operative instructions. Post-operative instructions are given to you by your doctor before surgery as well as our staff once you are discharged. The following are the most important post-operative instructions:


1) You should not drink or eat anything for six hours after surgery


2) You should not lift heavy objects and stay at home for the first day after surgery


3) You should use ice packs and take pain medications as needed


4) Report any significant changes in your condition (pain level, blood pressure, heart rate) to your surgeon or call 911 immediately


5) Report any nausea, vomiting, or bleeding to your surgeon or call 911 immediately



Risks of Surgery

While we’re all for making sure you are as prepared as possible for your upcoming surgery, it is also important to be aware of the risks. There is always a chance that something might go wrong, which is why reading our policy manual will help you better prepare yourself. Risk factors can include infection, blood loss during surgery, and anesthesia complications. These are just a few of the common risks that can occur with any type of surgery.
