FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is Crow Valley Surgery Center (CVSC) Open?

Yes, we are open for elective procedures. We are following The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of Iowa Public Health Disaster guidelines to perform surgeries and procedures in the safest manner possible. These mandates are in place to preserve necessary medical supplies and protective equipment and to minimize the spread of COVID 19.

Is it safe to have surgery now?

CVSC continues to safely serve our patients who need surgery, by strictly following our well established infection prevention practices for cleaning and for keeping patients and visitors safe,  as well as to practice current recommendations, such as strict prescreening and screening of all patients. Additionally, a strict visitor policy is in place upon the recommendation of CMS.

Is it safe to have surgery at Crow Valley Surgery Center?

The Surgery Center is a Medicare certified facility that is also accredited by AAAHC. It follows strict infection prevention guidelines and regulations by these and other national regulatory bodies. Additionally, all COVID 19  screening and prevention guidelines such as social distancing, having the proper protective equipment for both the patient, physicians and staff, is in place. The surgery center would not be scheduling elective surgery otherwise.

Can my family member come to the surgery center?

For your safety and for the safety of all patients, visitors and employees of the facility, unless a minor, visitors will not be allowed in the building. Minors may have one parent with them.

We will communicate by cell phone with your family member/significant other while you are in the surgery center.

Do I need to be COVID tested in order to have surgery?

Currently, COVID testing is not available, except for hospital patients only, and for patients that are suspected of having COVID 19. The test is not available to screening purposes. This is changing and we will be testing when it becomes available.

Please know however that, screening, state and all nationally recommended best practices to prevent COVID 19  are being strictly followed in the surgery center.

If you live in Iowa and you wish to be screened for testing you are welcome to go www.testiowa.com to determine if you are eligible to be tested through this program. You will not need a doctor’s order and testing is done by the Department of Health.
