Allied Physicians Surgery Center (APSC) is following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), ISDH, WHO, and local healthcare agencies on how to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. This includes proper and frequent hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, staying home when sick, and social distancing of greater than 6 feet.
All staff are screened every day following CDC guidelines. They are asked if experiencing any symptoms, no matter how minor, to stay home. Masks are worn by all staff throughout the day. High touch surfaces are disinfected frequently with approved cleaning chemicals to disinfect against Coronavirus and after each patient is registered. This includes but is not limited to door handles, pens, clipboards, monitoring equipment and all patient areas.
Our staff are screening patients for COVID-19 over the phone and in person based on guidelines from the CDC.
APSC will only be performing urgent elective procedures deemed necessary by the attending physician.
Upon arrival to the facility, the patient will be given a mask to wear and will have their temperature checked. A patient temperature greater than 100 degrees F will be reported to a Management Team Member and the Manager will assess the patient and consult with the Physician and Anesthesia staff member providing care to the patient.
During the Registration process patients will be required to answer the same set of pre-admit questions they previously answered over the phone. Any patient who answers “yes” to any of the questions will be directed to speak with a Management Team Member before proceeding forward with their care.
Effective immediately, Allied Physicians Surgery Center has temporarily changed its visitor guidelines for patients receiving care. Patients only will be allowed into the facility. Minor patients must be accompanied by 1 adult or guardian only. Patients who require assistance may be accompanied by 1 adult.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation to keep our patients and staff safe.
