Patient Information Sheet: What to Expect During Your Surgery Visit

 

Thank you for choosing Methodist McKinney Hospital or Methodist Craig Ranch Surgery Center for your upcoming surgery or procedure. We have modified many of our processes to provide a safer experience for you and your loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Keeping You Safe

  • For everyone’s safety, we have narrowed entry points for patients, visitors, and staff and perform COVID-19 screening at each entrance.
  • Visitors or any care team members exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 are not allowed in the facility.
  • Universal masking and hand hygiene are some of the most effective ways to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. We are requiring everyone in the facility to wear a mask. Patients are provided a mask on entry and visitors are asked to wear a mask from home or we will provide one if needed.

 

Visitor Policy

  • We recognize that having a support person with you during your surgery or procedure provides critical support. However, part of keeping everyone safe includes limiting the number of people in our facilities. To assist us with this effort, please bring only one visitor with you to remain at the facility throughout your scheduled procedure.
  • If your procedure requires an overnight stay, one designated visitor per day may stay with you in your room.
  • To reduce the number of people accessing the facility, no visitation is allowed in areas outside of the surgery and inpatient departments. (No visitation in outpatient imaging, outpatient lab, or other outpatient clinic setting.)
    • Visitors are allowed for the following exceptions:
      • One parent or guardian for a minor child
      • One support person for patients with disabilities or impairments warranting assistance
      • One support person for critically ill patients who may be at end of life
      • One chaplain/clergy if requested after hospital admission
    • We know that interacting and connecting with family and friends is important during your hospitalization. We encourage you to call, video chat, and text your loved ones on your smart device. We also have land-line phones available in each room.

 

COVID-19 Testing Before Surgery/Procedure

  • Any person having a planned, elective, non-emergent surgery or procedure will be tested for COVID-19 in order to provide appropriate care for the patient and to protect staff, visitors, and other patients. COVID-19 testing includes antibody IgG/IgM and PCR (nasopharyngeal sample).
  • Patients will need negative test results in order to proceed with procedure. Any positive results may change the course of care. Patients and physicians will be contacted for any positive results so that the procedure may be rescheduled and testing repeated as necessary.
  • The COVID-19 testing must be performed two to three days prior to surgery date. Patients will be contacted by Resilient Healthcare to schedule an appointment for in-home testing.
  • Patients are encouraged to self-isolate 14 days prior to surgery. Patients are required to self-isolate from the time test samples obtained until surgery day.
