My wife dropped a glass and cut her hand badly on a broken shard. We went to the emergency room at Seton SW for treatment. When she was processed in, she explained how she hurt herself. Apparently, the admitting staff didn't believe her. No, they figured they had a serious case of spousal abuse, i.e., that I'd stabbed her and that she was covering for me. In the course of treatment, she was asked to explain --- again and again -- what happened to her. The piece de resistance came when the surgeon who stitched her up asked me, pointedly, if I remembered the lyrics to the Kingston Trio's "Tom Dooley." When I got home, I looked them up: "Hang down your head, Tom Dooley, hang down your head and cry, hang down your head, Tom Dooley, poor boy, you're gonna die ... I met her on the mountain, there I took her life, I met her on the mountain, and stabbed her with my knife ..." Needless to say, I was deeply offended at this joker's insinuation, and I hope we never have to make another emergency trip to Seton SW.

Went to their ER at 5:30 AM for a bladder infection. First time at this hospital and was very happily surprised at the amazing staff from checkin to checkout. Very attentive and caring. Would definitely go back.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the center. Some may allow brief visits by family members. Patients should ask about visiting rules before inviting people to stop by.
No. Patients should arrange for someone to drive them home and stay with them for 24 hours following the procedure.
This depends on the procedure. Most centers ask that patients arrive one to two  hours before the procedure begins. Following the procedure, the patient will stay at the center until fully recovered from being sedated. This may take between one and three  hours. After that, if the patient isn't experiencing abnormal pain, he or she may leave.
Different states have different rules regarding requirements for surgery centers. However, ASCs are required to be certified as a Medicare and/or Medicaid Ambulatory Surgery Center supplier before they enter into an agreement with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
The most common types of procedures conducted at surgery centers are:
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopedics
  • Pain management
Some of the most common procedures include:
  • Cataract surgery
  • Colonoscopy
  • Pain injections
