Status of Operations:

Safety Harbor Surgery Center recognizes the recommendations for your safety by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and continually monitoring updates from the CDC and Department of Health. Steps taken by Safety Harbor Surgery Center in this regard specifically include:

  • Increasing the rigorous cleaning and sanitizing procedures throughout the facility (including frequent disinfection of our equipment, common areas and surfaces)
  • Making hand sanitizers and disinfectant supplies available
  • Reducing density in our waiting rooms
  • Screening all patients on arrival for possible infection
  • Safety Harbor Surgery Center is maintaining continual communication with staff, and any employee with potential symptoms is being asked to stay home

Instructions for Patients:

We ask that you call the facility and reschedule your appointment if within the past 2 weeks, you have:

  • Have been asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine by any other doctor or public health official
  • Have or have had a fever, a new cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, diarrhea, or any flu-like symptoms

Upon your arrival, we will be asking you again about any symptoms. This is done as a precautionary measure to ensure you are in good general health.

    Steps You Can Take to Limit Exposure:

    • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
    • If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
    • Cover your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze
    • Avoid touching your face
    • Maintain “social distancing” around others
    • Avoid contact with people who are sick

    If You’re Sick:

    • Monitor symptoms – seek prompt medical care if symptoms worsen
    • Stay home except to get medical care
    • Wash your hands, clean and disinfect surfaces daily
    • If you’re around other sick people, or caring for others, wear a face mask
    • Call your doctor before seeking care, including for appointments scheduled for other reasons
    • Call 911 if you have a medical emergency

    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
