Announcement from First Surgical Hospital where Dr. Rosenfeld performs all Tubal Reversals.
From Dr. Rosenfeld: First Surgical Hospital has reopened to surgeries such as tubal reversals. We are now rescheduling previously planned tubal reversals and new candidates for tubal reversals. Please read the important information below.
You can find out if you are a tubal reversal candidate at no cost to you. Register here for a free tubal reversal phone consultation. Note that it may take longer than usual to get your tubal ligation operative notes from the hospital where your tubes were tied, but we are available to help you get these records to determine if you are a candidate for tubal reversal.
Contact our office if you think you have been in contact with a COVID-19 positive patient. We must work with you to review your case and reschedule tubal reversal to at least 14 days after the exposure.
Important Information From First Surgical Hospital:
Because First Surgical Hospital (FSH) is primarily a specialty surgical hospital, it is an immensely safer environment than facilities serving the general public to diagnose and treat active diseases and general malaise. We believe it is one the safest environments to work and operate in. With FSH not having a busy Emergency Room or large internal medicine and/or family practice groups admitting patients here, the hospital is always a safer environment than general hospitals.
READ BEFORE VISITING FIRST SURGICAL HOSPITAL
As part of our responsibilities to our patients, their families, and each other, FSH has implemented the following:
- No parking allowed at the facility. All patients must be dropped off and picked up after surgery. Recovery nurses will contact drivers to inform them when patients are ready to be picked up and will escort patients to their cars.
- The door of the hospital facing Bissonnet has been closed and locked. Everyone will enter at the door facing the surgical center which is nearest the parking for the facility.
- No visitors allowed in the facility, only patients with scheduled surgeries and appointments.
- All patients must wear a mask to enter the facility.
- All patients will have their temperature taken prior to entering the facility. If there is an active fever, that person will be refused entry and referred to their primary care physician. ER patients will be evaluated and treated based on the CDC recommendations, in cooperation with the Harris County Health Department.
- All patients will be asked a series of questions to screen for potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus. The screening includes questions about topics such as overseas travel and current health conditions.
- Social distancing will be observed in all cases where reasonable. Hospital management will continue to monitor the situation both locally, regionally, and nationally and will update this notice if recommendations or procedures change.
Everyone should be observant of everyone they encounter and report any concerns to a manager if there is any suspicion of potential exposure risk to the virus.
Housekeeping has increased frequency of rounds, focusing on more frequent wiping of common area surfaces, (doors, door handles, counter tops). We encourage each department to do the same within their work areas. All employees should continue to practice good hygiene by washing hands frequently and avoiding touching the face.
