The 4th floor is the Surgical Services floor, including Outpatient Surgery/HOP unit, Inpatient Surgery unit, GI Lab, and the Operating Room/PACU suite. The surgical services departments work closely together with our physicians to deliver quality care to our community and the surrounding areas.
This Outpatient Surgery (OPS) and HOP (hourly outpatient) unit is uniquely different from all other units in the hospital. The role of the OPS/HOP Unit is to provide pre and postoperative care of the outpatient surgeries and preoperative care for inpatient surgery patients.
This unit also provides everything from blood transfusions to chemotherapy and wound care to simple injections. It is clear how each day can be different from the day before. The members of this great team are hospital ambassadors to Iberia Parish and are well-loved by the community for the specialized care they give.
Services provided include:
Although all surgical procedures do not require stays in the hospital, there are many procedures that will require an inpatient stay of one or more days for proper recovery. In addition, an inpatient stay may be required after a surgical procedure for patients hospitalized with more acute illnesses.
Our professional, dedicated staff will provide quality care in a comfortable atmosphere to ensure a thorough recovery.
The Perioperative Surgery team consists of certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), OR registered nurses, surgical techs, PACU nurses, a GI Lab RN and tech, secretary, and a CNA who help deliver highly specialized surgical care. This group assists physicians with elective procedures and provides emergency surgical care for the community.
