Mercer County Surgery Center continues to perform URGENT elective surgical cases. Per the announcement of Governor Murphy, we will open up to ALL elective procedural and surgical cases starting May 26, 2020.
Safety Precautions Matter
Our center has always adhered to both state and federal infection control requirements, but they become even more important during a world wide pandemic.
Because your safety is always our main concern, we have implemented additional infection prevention measures to provide you, as well as our physicians and staff, with a safe clinical environment for your procedure.
- Telephone screenings of all our patients prior to their appointment.
- Additional questionnaire screenings upon arrival of the patient and anyone accompanying the patient to our center.
- All patients and visitors will get a temperature and blood oxygen level reading at check-in.
- Limiting visitors to one person per patient while recommending that the visitors remain outside the center until the patient is ready to leave.
- Appointments will be staggered to limit the number of people in our waiting area at one time.
- All who enter the building MUST wear a mask and have their temperature taken and recorded including all patients, visitors, healthcare providers, staff, sales representative and maintenance providers.
- Enhanced PPE for all healthcare providers as recommended by the AAOS, CDC, ASGE.
- An increased frequency of disinfection rounds to clean all common, frequently touch surface areas.
- The staff will also be practicing social distancing when possible.
- There are hand sanitizers and tissues in all patient care areas.
