ENDOSCOPY SERVICES

I'm having a procedure done. Will I be asleep? Will it hurt?


For most endoscopic procedures, we provide conscious sedation . In other words, you are conscious, but sedated. The main goals of performing an endoscopy include providing optimal patient safety, successfully completing the procedure, and having the patient feel comfortable. Conscious sedation is one factor in helping reach these goals and our physicians and nurses are trained in conscious sedation and monitoring of the patient. It is important to inform us if you are sensitive to sedatives, or if you have serious medical conditions (heart, lung, liver, vascular diseases) that might make sedation more dangerous for you. Conscious sedation procedures are generally performed with a pain medication in combination with a sedative medication to control pain while relaxing the patient throughout the procedure.

After the procedure, how soon can I eat, drive and return to work?

After an upper endoscopy or colonoscopy, you will be encouraged to drink clear liquids. If you feel fine, then you can eat a light meal and progress to a regular diet. You should not drive for 24 hours, as conscious sedation will impair your reactions, and make your driving unsafe. Because conscious sedation can also result in memory impairment, you are discouraged from working or making business decisions for 24 hours after receiving conscious sedation.

How will I breathe if there's a “light” or endoscope in my throat?

The endoscope is nine millimeters wide and flexible. In other words, its size is much less than your throat or mouth, so you will be able to breathe easily around it. Most patients tolerate the procedure very well with sedation.

I'm coming in for a colonoscopy. Can't I just take an enema rather than drink the gallon container of preparation?

No – for a good exam of your entire colon, you will need to have your entire colon clean. Enemas only clear out the lowest portion.

What can I do to help drink the gallon of Golytely or Colyte?

Patients sometimes have less difficulty if they use a straw rather than drinking it from the glass. Also, the taste is not as sharp if the liquid is cold. Flavor packages are provided with some of the formulas. Some patients notice that sucking on sugar-free candy between drinks helps.

What's a clear liquid?

Any liquid that you can see through. Examples include water, tea, soda, Popsicles, apple juice, clear broths, and sports drinks. Black coffee is a clear liquid, while milk is not. Please avoid alcohol.

Why can't I take aspirin or arthritis pills prior to the procedure?

One of the main complications of an endoscopy is bleeding. Aspirin and arthritis pills inhibit your blood's ability to clot, and increase your risk for bleeding. Aspirin can have this effect for several weeks, while arthritis medications, including ibuprofen, tend to inhibit clotting for just a few days.

Is the colonoscopy embarrassing?

Our job is successfully completing the procedure, and having the patient feel comfortable. Part of patient comfort is a lack of embarrassment. You can expect to be treated with respect, and have your privacy protected. During the procedure, you will be wearing a gown and sheet in a private exam room with a nurse, a procedure assistant and doctor in attendance. Despite patients' common fear, patients do not experience incontinence during the procedure. Afterwards, you will have abdominal gas, and in fact, will be encouraged to pass the air before going home. However, keep in mind the air you pass will be room air, without odor.

How do you clean the scopes? Are they safe?

An endoscope must be carefully cleaned and disinfected according to guidelines established by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), the Association for Professionals in Infection Control, and the Society for Gastrointestinal Nurses and Associates (SGNA). All of our endoscopes are pre-cleaned immediately after a procedure right in the room, they are then washed down, checked for any leaks, and thoroughly cleaned inside and out prior to placing them into an automatic washer that performs high levels of disinfection through all channels and ports of the scope. We take careful attention to details in the process of cleaning our endoscopes and all staff is trained and competency tested on this process annually. All of our endoscope cleanings are documented and tracked in our computer system for future references.

What organs can you see with the endoscope during these procedures?

During a colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy (FOPS), and upper endoscopy (EGD), the endoscope can visualize only the gastrointestinal (GI or digestive) tract. An EGD visualizes through the esophagus (throat) into the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine. A colonoscopy visualizes the rectum and the length of the large intestine, a FOPS visualizes only the rectum and lower third portion of the large intestine. We cannot visualize any other organs outside of the GI tract. The endoscope projects the image of the exam onto the TV monitor for direct visualization of the GI tract and he can also take “snapshot” pictures for record documentation of your procedure.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

What kind of hospital is Care Regional Medical Center?

Care Regional Medical Center is a full-service acute-care medical center with 75 beds, offering a full range of healthcare services with a personal touch.

What are your visiting regulations?

For the Med/Surg Department – Visiting hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Children are allowed with some restrictions.

For the Behavioral Health Department - Visiting hours are 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Children are not allowed

For the Intensive Care Unit – Visiting hours are at 8 a.m., 12 p.m., 4 p.m., and 8 p.m. for 30 minutes at a time. Children are not allowed.

Does CRMC have private rooms?

Yes, depending on our census even the semi-private patients don't always have a roommate.

How can I tell if I have high blood pressure (hypertension)?

Many people have hypertension without knowing it since there are not usually any symptoms. It is known as a “Silent Killer”. Hypertension does not refer to being tense, nervous or hyperactive. You can be calm and relaxed and still have hypertension. The only way to find out if you have hypertension is to have your blood pressure checked.

What causes hypertension?

In 90 to 95 percent of the cases, scientists are not sure of the cause. They have, however, developed treatments to control hypertension effectively.

What are the risks of developing hypertension?

Heredity, race, males and increasing age can increase risk of hypertension. High sodium (salt) intake is another factor that can put you at risk. Obesity and being overweight (Body Mass Index [BMI] of 30 or higher) can contribute, as well as an inactive lifestyle (you should do 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day). Diabetes, gout and kidney disease are factors for developing hypertension and consumption of medications, steroids, Ibuprofin, cold remedies, diet pills and oral contraceptives can all increase risk as well. To keep hypertension at bay, lower alcohol consumption to no more than two drinks per day.

INFECTION CONTROL

What is the purpose of the Infection Control Program?

The Infection Control program exists to prevent the occurrence of, or to limit, the spread of hospital acquired infections in patients, health care workers, visitors and others in the health care environment.

Whom does Infection Control serve?

The Infection Control program strives to reduce risk of infection for all patients, health care workers, visitors and others who have contact with Care Regional Medical Center.

What is the Infection Control Program?

The Pharmacy and Therapeutic Committee (P&T), as established in the Medical Staff Bylaws, is responsible for the Infection Control program of Care Regional Medical Center. The goals of the program are:

  • The surveillance of potential hospital infections
  • The review and analysis of actual infections
  • The promotion of preventive and corrective programs designed to minimize infection hazards and the supervision of infection control in all phases of the hospital activities.

One employee manages the program with training in Infection Control (IC). The P&T committee meets at least quarterly to analyze surveillance data, determine actions necessary to achieve goals of the IC Program, approve policies applicable to IC and to receive input from its members about IC concerns. At least annually the committee reviews the program to determine effectiveness and to define the surveillance activities for the next year.

What types of infections does the P&T Committee monitor?

The current surveillance activities briefly include:

  • Device Associated infection rates that may be benchmarked against rates published by CDC;
  • Device Associated Infection rates on nursing units that are benchmarked internally only;
  • The prevalence and the hospital acquired transmission of antibiotic resistant organisms - especially MRSA and VRE.
  • The possible transmission of C.difficile infections;
  • Antibiotic Susceptibility Profiles – published annually by the Microbiology Department;
  • TST testing compliance and conversion rates among employees; and
  • Body Fluid exposures and Communicable Infections among employees.

What other functions does Infection Control perform?

  • Routine surveillance of patient care areas of CRMC to assure compliance with Infection Control policies. Periodic surveillance of non-patient care areas.
  • Communicable disease reporting to the Texas State Department of Health Services (through the local health department) is through the Infection Control Preventionist. Reports are based on results obtained from the laboratory and communication from staff.
  • Routine review of microbiology reports and admitting diagnoses to recognize clusters of infection or unusual pathogens.
  • Working with Human Resources all Employee Health services involving infectious disease, including:
    • Follow up of exposures to Tuberculosis and other infectious organisms
    • Follow up of Body Fluid Exposures.
    • Follow up of employee illnesses that may require work restrictions.
  • Development and ongoing review/revision of policies/procedures with infection control implications – new or revised patient care procedures are reviewed as indicated.
  • Evaluate new products that have infection control implications by working closely with the Purchasing Department.
  • Provide ongoing education to staff about Infection Control, including:
    • New Employee Orientation Infection Control
    • Annual review of blood borne pathogen precautions
    • Periodic reports to nursing units of surveillance results and Infection Control issues discovered during rounds.
    • Periodic in-services to all departments.
  • The P&TC has the authority, through its chair or any physician member, to institute any appropriate control measure or study when there is considered to be a danger of infection to a patient or personnel.

What are the times that Infection Control can be reached?

The Infection Control Preventionist is usually available from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Alternate sources are always specified when the Infection Control Preventionist is unavailable.

The phone number for the office is (361) 758-0530.

Voice mail may be left at that number at any time.

Where can I find out what Immunizations are needed for travel outside the U.S.?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains the most up-to-date information on their Web site: www.cdc.gov . Choose “Traveler's Health” from the list of topics on the left hand side.

Hand washing

Special attention is paid to hand washing, as this is the most important practice to prevent the spread of this germ.

Good hand washing includes these steps:

  • Use warm running water
  • Apply antibacterial soap
  • Lather and rub hands together, paying attention to fingertips, cuticles, around rings and under nails
  • Spend at least 10 seconds lathering and washing hands
  • Rinse thoroughly
  • Pat dry
  • Use a paper towel to turn off faucet
  • Apply lotion several times throughout the day to help prevent dry, cracked skin (which can be an opening for infection)

In the community and in the hospital, the most important practice to prevent the spread of any organism is good hand washing.

For the safety of our patients and visitors, CRMC provides Alcohol based hand sanitizer throughout the hospital, as well as areas to properly wash hands with soap and water.

Laboratory Services

What are the hours the Laboratory is open for outpatient testing?

The Laboratory is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Routine Outpatient services are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

What laboratory tests require fasting?

For any tests that measure lipids (Cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL, LDL, Glucose), patients should be fasting. Your physician may instruct you to fast for other tests as well.

When instructed to fast, how long should I fast?

It is normally recommended that fasting should be for 12-14 hours. Do not stop taking prescribed medications during the fast, unless instructed to by your physician.

Do I need a physician's order to have laboratory testing done?

Yes, a physician's order is required.

Do I report directly to the Laboratory with my physician's order for testing?

A physician's order is required at the time of registration. Please report to the Registration area when arriving at CRMC for your laboratory test. After the registration staff has obtained the necessary information, you will be directed to the Outpatient Laboratory. A Laboratory phlebotomist will then greet you and proceed with your specimen collection.

Laboratory phone (361) 785-8585 EX 446 or 468 and Laboratory fax (361) 758-3132..

May I have a copy of my laboratory results?

Yes, if indicated by the Physician. The patients may have a copy of their results after completing an Authorization for Release of Medical Information form. We encourage patients to discuss their results with their physician.

How long does it take to perform my laboratory tests?

The physician ordering your tests will receive your laboratory results for most tests within 12- 24 hours. Some tests, such as cultures or tests sent to reference laboratories may take longer.

RADIOLOGY SERVICES

Will a board-certified radiologist interpret my examination?

Yes, the American College of Radiology (ACR) recommends a properly qualified physician to interpret all imaging examinations. A radiologist, who is certified by the American Board of Radiology, will clearly meet this recommendation. In its practice guidelines, the ACR defines alternative pathways for physician qualification.

Is the imaging facility formally accredited to perform my examination?

The ACR has a comprehensive program of facility accreditation for radiation oncology, MRI, CT, Nuclear Medicine and PET, Ultrasound, General Radiology, Breast Ultrasound and Stereotactic Breast Biopsy. Equipment and personnel must meet specific qualifications, and a high level of image quality is required for this accreditation. Other accrediting bodies exist and may also be acceptable, provide their criteria are at least as rigorous as those of the ACR.

Does a qualified medical physicist check the imaging equipment yearly?

Yes, Radiation exposure and equipment performance are two important aspects of patient safety in imaging examinations. Only through a thorough annual equipment examination by a qualified medical physicist can proper safety be ensured.

If I'm getting an injection, does the facility have a formal emergency response plan ?

Yes, intravenous injections, which are used to enhance the detail of some imaging examinations, carry a very small risk of serious reaction.

How soon can my examination be done?


The timing of your imaging examination should depend primarily on the urgency of your medical condition. You and your physician will determine the time frame.

Will there be someone there to explain the examination to me?

Yes, staff is available to give you a brief explanation of your examination and to be able to answer any questions you may have.

How soon will my doctor know the results of my examination?

Depending on the urgency of your examination, your doctor should receive the results either immediately or within a few days.

How do you prepare?

Different types of X-rays require different preparations. Ask your doctor or nurse to provide you with specific instructions.

In general, you undress the area of your body that needs examination. You may wear a gown to cover yourself during the exam, depending on what area is being X-rayed. You may also be asked to remove jewelry, eyeglasses and any metal objects that could- like clothing- obscure the X-ray image since these objects can show up on X-ray.

You may wear a lead apron, to shield your sex organs from exposure to X-rays. At very high doses, radiation can damage a woman's eggs or a man's sperm. Since you're exposed to a small amount of radiation during most X-rays, the lead apron is used simply as a precaution.

At high doses, radiation also can be harmful to a fetus. Always inform the X-ray technologist if there's any possibility that you're pregnant. Your doctor may suggest you either forgo the X-ray exam, or if one is necessary at the time, take precautions to minimize radiation exposure to the fetus.

Before some types of X-rays, such as a barium enema, you will be given a liquid called a contrast medium, or dye. A contrast medium – barium and iodine are examples – helps to outline a specific area of your body on X-ray film. You may swallow the contrast medium, insert it as an enema or receive it as an injection into a vein. The contrast medium appears opaque on X-ray film, providing a clear outline of structures such as your digestive tract or blood vessels.

If you are to receive a contrast medium before an X-ray, tell your doctor if you have a history of allergy to X-ray dye.

It is important to notify the R.N. or radiographer if you take an oral diabetic medication called Glucophage, if you have any history of kidney disease or if you take an anticoagulant or “blood thinner.”

What can you expect during the test?

If you need an X-ray, you are brought to a room with a movable machine that produces the X-ray – and table or wall-mounted equipment typically containing a cassette with X-ray film.

You may lie on a table, sit or stand between the X-ray machine and the X-ray film. The technologist or radiologist – a doctor who specializes in interpreting X-rays and other imaging tests – helps position your body to obtain the necessary views. He or she may use pillows or sandbags to help you hold the proper position. The technologist then aims the machine at the area of your body that needs examination.

Once you are in the proper position, the technologist enters a control booth. During the X-ray exposure, you remain still and hold your breath to avoid moving, which can cause blurring on the film.

The technologist may take X-rays from multiple angles, for example one of the front of your body and one from the side.

If your young child is having an X-ray, restraints may be used to help keep him or her still. You may be allowed to remain with your child during the test. If you remain in the room during the X-ray exposure, you are typically given a lead apron to wear to shield you from unnecessary exposure.

An X-ray procedure may last from several minutes for a bone X-ray, to about an hour for more involved procedures such as those using a contrast medium.

For most X-rays, you feel no discomfort other than the hardness of the X-ray table or the temperature of the room, which may be kept cool to keep the equipment from overheating. It may be necessary to compress momentarily the body part being examined. This compression may be uncomfortable, but the discomfort lasts only briefly during the X-ray exposure. If you are having a test that requires a contrast medium, ask your doctor what to expect.

After an X-ray, you generally dress and return to your normal activities. Routine X-rays usually have no side effects. However, if you receive an injection of a contrast medium before your X-rays, call your doctor if you experience pain, swelling or redness at the injection site. Ask your doctor about other signs and symptoms to watch for pertaining to your specific X-ray procedure.

Results

X-ray films are usually developed or are viewed on-screen within minutes. A radiologist typically views and interprets the results and sends the findings to your doctor, who then explains the results to you. In an emergency, your X-ray results can be made available to your doctor in minutes.

Risks

You may worry that X-rays are not safe because it is known that high levels of radiation exposure can cause cell mutations that may lead to cancer. But the amount of radiation that you are exposed to during an X-ray is so small that the risk of any damage to cells in your body is extremely low.

So, for most X-ray examinations, the benefits of any medically indicated examination are thought to greatly outweigh the small risk. In addition, great care is taken to use the lowest radiation dose possible to produce the best image for the radiologist to evaluate. No radiation remains after an X-ray examination.

However, if you are pregnant, or suspect that you may be pregnant, inform your doctor before having an X-ray. Though the risk of most diagnostic X-rays to an unborn baby is small, your doctor may consider whether it is better to wait or to use another imaging test such as ultrasound.

Surgical Services

Why does anesthesia need so much medical information?

In some cases, existing medical conditions may impact anesthesia. Not addressing a pre-existing medical condition until just before a surgery will cause a delay in - and possibly a cancellation of your surgery/procedure. For your safety and convenience, you will be assessed/evaluated by our Pre Assessment/Same Day Surgery nurse three to five days before your procedure/surgery. Some of these patients may be asked to provide a letter of consultation from their internal medicine physician/cardiologist. For patients with cardiac stent6s or implanted defibrillators, and evaluation by the patient's cardiologist is typically required before surgery can proceed. There is no charge for this pre-operative evaluation. Charges will result from any laboratories to tests that are required.

Health Services

The Rockport-Fulton area prides itself on maintaining a healthy lifestyle that embraces the natural beauty of our coastal area. Residents and visitors alike will find quality healthcare providers for medical and dental needs.

Our local healthcare community currently includes facilities focusing on physical therapy, eye care, home health, hospice, dialysis, chiropractic, and counseling. Although many young families live in our area, there has been a steady growth in our 50+ year-old population. Winter Texans as well as corporate and military retired residents have increased the demand for medical professionals who specialize in this age group. As of January 2011, there will be a brand-new urgent care center open seven days a week with advanced technology including full X-ray, CT scan, ultrasound, an on-site reference laboratory, and staffed with experienced physicians, nurses and technologists. Rockport-Fulton has a state-of-the-art EMS Mobile Intensive Care Unit Program that features excellent transport services to more than ten major medical facilities within 15 to 30 minutes of our area. With specialties ranging from pediatrics, cardiology, orthopedics, and oncology to obstetrics, in- or out-patient surgery, and a Level II trauma center; our community is well served.

We are also a hub center for the initial training and continuous education required for EMS personnel in the region. Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi, Driscoll Children's Hospital, and Christus-Spohn Memorial Hospital jointly provide for the training and certification of nurse practitioners, medical residents, nurses, and therapists; many of whom choose to remain in the area to establish their practice.
