Update on Elective Surgeries

Ready to Get You Back to You

At Hoag Orthopedic Institute (HOI), patient safety has always been of utmost importance, and it drives our outcomes and patient experience. We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused unease and uncertainty, but what has not changed is HOI’s commitment to excellence in orthopedic care and outcomes.

Pre-Op Patient Screening & Testing Protocol

We will proceed with our plan in a thoughtful and judicious manner, monitoring the data daily and will be ready to adjust as necessary based on changing conditions.

We have also developed and implemented additional safety measures to protect our patients, physicians and staff members in accordance with CDC and other regulatory guidelines:

  • Patient screening at admission in accordance with CDC guidelines including temperature, health and travel history.
  • Visitor restrictions
  • Screening and limiting all personnel and visitors entering the facility
  • Offering online pre-op classes to assist patients and caregivers to prepare for a successful surgery and recovery.
  • Limiting personnel in the Operating Rooms
  • Screening of all staff members and doctors upon entrance to the facility to include, but not limited to, masking, temperature and social distancing rules.

While COVID-19 is likely our new normal for the foreseeable future, we are well positioned to begin to more fully serve our community in a manner consistent with our mission and vision.

Thank you for choosing Hoag Orthopedic Institute. We are here to help you “Get Back to You.”
