We are asking patients to join us in additional efforts, including:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before and after eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Avoid toughing your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Avoid shaking hands when greeting people, to potentially prevent transmission.
As COVID-19 continues to be a health concern, please be aware of the signs and symptoms:
The signs and symptoms of COVID-19 that are present at the onset of the illness vary, but over the course of the disease, most people with COVID-19 experience one or more of the following:
- Fever or chills.
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
- Muscle or body aches.
- New loss of taste or smell.
- Congestion or runny nose.
If you have any of these symptoms the day of your surgical procedure, please call 815.436.0911 and ask to speak to one of the pre-op nurses.
Every patient who is having a procedure done at Plainfield Surgery Center will need a COVID test done 72 hours before. The nurse will tell you what day you need to have your test done. It is important to quarantine after the test has been completed.

Only the patient is allowed in the Surgery Center. The family members are asked to wait in parking lot. Once the surgery is completed the surgeon will call and talk with the family member. The nursing staff will call and provide an update on your family member and review the post-op instructions.
Pediatric patients: For patients who are 17 yrs old and younger, one parent may come in with your child. Once your child has gone back for surgery we will ask you to wait in the car. When their surgery is completed the surgeon will call you and discuss the how the surgery/procedure went. Before your child leaves Phase 1 recovery, the nurse will call you and have you come back in the building to be with your child as they continue to recover.
