PLEASE READ THE COOK­IE STATE­MENT CARE­FUL­LY BEFORE USING OR OBTAIN­ING ANY MATE­RI­ALS, INFOR­MA­TION, PROD­UCTS OR SER­VICES THROUGH THE SER­VICES. BY ACCESS­ING THE SER­VICES, YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT, WITH­OUT LIM­I­TA­TION OR QUAL­I­FI­CA­TION, THIS COOK­IE BELOW. We reserve the right to change, update, or cor­rect any of this Cook­ie State­ment or any infor­ma­tion con­tained in the Ser­vices at any time with­out notice by post­ing an amend­ed state­ment to the Ser­vices. Your con­tin­ued use of the Ser­vices means that you accept and agree to the revised Cook­ie State­ment. If you do not accept this Cook­ie State­ment (as amend­ed from time to time), please exit the Ser­vices immediately.

To the extent we pro­vide you notice on our Ser­vice of dif­fer­ent or addi­tion­al pri­va­cy poli­cies or prac­tices (e.g., at the point of our col­lec­tion), those addi­tion­al terms shall gov­ern such data col­lec­tion and use. By using our Ser­vice, you con­sent to our Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy and our col­lec­tion, use and shar­ing of your infor­ma­tion and data, and oth­er activ­i­ties, as described below.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PRI­VA­CY POL­I­CY DOES NOT APPLY TO YOUR PRO­TECT­ED HEALTH INFOR­MA­TION. We may receive your Pro­tect­ed Health Infor­ma­tion when you, for exam­ple, sched­ule an appoint­ment, pro­vide your Pro­tect­ed Health Infor­ma­tion through the Epic MyChart por­tal, the online bill pay por­tal, or while you are receiv­ing treat­ment from us. Pro­tect­ed Health Infor­ma­tion is treat­ed in accor­dance with our Notices of Pri­va­cy Prac­tices, which are avail­able here. If you have any ques­tions about RJPMD use or dis­clo­sure of your Pro­tect­ed Health Infor­ma­tion, please review the Notice of Pri­va­cy Prac­tices. Alter­na­tive­ly, you may con­tact us using the infor­ma­tion below. We may link Usage Infor­ma­tion and/​or Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion to your Pro­tect­ed Health Infor­ma­tion. In such cir­cum­stances, we will treat such linked infor­ma­tion as Pro­tect­ed Health Infor­ma­tion on a going-for­ward basis.

The Infor­ma­tion We Collect

Our web servers auto­mat­i­cal­ly cap­ture your domain name, the IP address of the web page from which you enter our Ser­vice, brows­er type, the pages you vis­it on our Ser­vice, the amount of time you spend here and oth­er rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion about your vis­it. We do not col­lect any infor­ma­tion that can reveal your per­son­al iden­ti­ty unless you vol­un­tar­i­ly pro­vide it when you reg­is­ter to use inter­ac­tive fea­tures of the Ser­vice. The infor­ma­tion we col­lect is not part of any des­ig­nat­ed record set.

If you use the fea­tures on this web­site or on the web­sites our busi­ness part­ners, you are ​“opt­ing in” and agree to our col­lec­tion of infor­ma­tion as described above. You may ​“opt in” or ​“opt out” each time you access the web­site. If you ​“opt out,” you can­not use the inter­ac­tive features.

Use of the Infor­ma­tion this Ser­vice Gathers/​Tracks

Any per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion you give us will be used only as per­mit­ted by law, includ­ing to pro­vide the prod­uct, ser­vice or infor­ma­tion you have request­ed or to sup­port the pro­grams for which you reg­is­tered. Unless you express­ly con­sent to let us do so, your per­son­al­ly-iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion, includ­ing your e‑mail address, will not be sold, rent­ed, licensed, or oth­er­wise shared with third par­ties. Addi­tion­al­ly, unless you express­ly pro­vide your con­sent or to ful­fill a request from you — We won’t send you any unso­licit­ed e‑mail.

The non-per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion we gath­er in aggre­gate form may be used to improve our Ser­vice, and we may share that infor­ma­tion with busi­ness part­ners, third-par­ty ven­dors work­ing on our behalf, or our health and well­ness spon­sors. The use and col­lec­tion of infor­ma­tion by these third-par­ty ven­dors is gov­erned by their respec­tive pri­va­cy state­ments and is not cov­ered by this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy or the RJPMD Terms of Use To pro­tect your infor­ma­tion, we encour­age you to learn about the pri­va­cy poli­cies of those third par­ties. Third-par­ty ven­dors that RJPMD has a cur­rent busi­ness rela­tion­ship with include the enti­ties list­ed here:

  • Google Ana­lyt­ics. We use Google Ana­lyt­ics for track­ing queries sub­mit­ted to their search engines. We also use Google’s Dou­bleClick tech­nol­o­gy for track­ing our adver­tise­ments, enabling ​“tell-a-friend” social media func­tion­al­i­ty, and pro­vid­ing us with the con­tact infor­ma­tion of users who sub­mit a request for addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion about our ser­vices via click-through adver­tise­ments. View Google’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy.

This list may be updat­ed and mod­i­fied from time to time by RJPMD in its sole and absolute dis­cre­tion. Infor­ma­tion that you vol­un­tar­i­ly pro­vid­ed will be main­tained as long as RJPMD deems appro­pri­ate to ful­fill the pur­pose for which you pro­vid­ed the infor­ma­tion, until you request us to remove it, or for as long as per­mit­ted under applic­a­ble law.

We may offer sweep­stakes, con­tests, and oth­er pro­mo­tions (any, a ​“Pro­mo­tion”) through the Ser­vice that may require reg­is­tra­tion. By par­tic­i­pat­ing in a Pro­mo­tion, you are agree­ing to offi­cial rules that gov­ern that Pro­mo­tion, which may con­tain spe­cif­ic require­ments of you, includ­ing, allow­ing the spon­sor of the Pro­mo­tion to use your name, voice and/​or like­ness in adver­tis­ing or mar­ket­ing asso­ci­at­ed with the Pro­mo­tion. If you choose to enter a Pro­mo­tion, per­son­al infor­ma­tion may be dis­closed to third par­ties or the pub­lic in con­nec­tion with the admin­is­tra­tion of such Pro­mo­tion, includ­ing, in con­nec­tion with win­ner selec­tion, prize ful­fill­ment, and as required by law or per­mit­ted by the Promotion’s offi­cial rules, such as on a win­ners list.

To the fullest extent per­mit­ted by applic­a­ble law, we may also dis­close your infor­ma­tion if we believe in good faith that doing so is nec­es­sary or appro­pri­ate to: (i) pro­tect or defend the rights, safe­ty or prop­er­ty of RJPMD or third par­ties (includ­ing through the enforce­ment of this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy, and oth­er applic­a­ble agree­ments and poli­cies); or (ii) com­ply with legal and reg­u­la­to­ry oblig­a­tions (e.g., pur­suant to law enforce­ment inquiries, sub­poe­nas or court orders). To the fullest extent per­mit­ted by applic­a­ble law, we have com­plete dis­cre­tion and with­out notice to you to elect whether or not to make such dis­clo­sures, and to con­test or not con­test requests for such disclosures.

Third Par­ty Ana­lyt­ics Providers and Ad Servers

We may use third-par­ty ven­dors to per­form cer­tain ser­vices on behalf of us or the Ser­vice, such as host­ing the Ser­vice, design­ing and/​or oper­at­ing the Service’s fea­tures, track­ing the Service’s activ­i­ties, uti­liza­tion of shar­ing tech­nol­o­gy that allows users to share con­tent on this Site through social media, and ana­lyt­ics. We may pro­vide these ven­dors with access to user infor­ma­tion or they may direct­ly col­lect your infor­ma­tion to car­ry out the ser­vices they are per­form­ing for you or for us. Third-par­ty ana­lyt­ics and oth­er ser­vice providers may set and access their own track­ing tech­nolo­gies on your device and they may oth­er­wise col­lect or have access to infor­ma­tion about you, poten­tial­ly includ­ing per­son­al infor­ma­tion, about you. We are not respon­si­ble for those third par­ty tech­nolo­gies or activ­i­ties aris­ing out of them.

We may also work with cer­tain third par­ties to pro­vide us with infor­ma­tion regard­ing traf­fic on the Ser­vice to serve adver­tise­ments else­where online, and to pro­vide us with infor­ma­tion regard­ing the use of our web­site or ser­vices and the effec­tive­ness of our adver­tise­ments. These third par­ties may auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lect infor­ma­tion about you using their own cook­ies or oth­er tech­nolo­gies, or may oth­er­wise col­lect or have access to, infor­ma­tion about your vis­its to this and oth­er web­sites, your IP address, your ISP, the brows­er you use to vis­it our web­site and oth­er usage infor­ma­tion. Infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed may be used, among oth­er things, to deliv­er adver­tis­ing tar­get­ed to your inter­ests and to bet­ter under­stand the usage and vis­i­ta­tion of our web­site and the oth­er sites tracked by these third parties.

The Cook­ie Statement

When you vis­it the Ser­vice, we may place a tem­po­rary ​“ses­sion” or a per­ma­nent cook­ie on your com­put­er that will allow us to cus­tomize and enhance your expe­ri­ence at the Ser­vice, make improve­ments to our Ser­vice, or to report Ser­vice activ­i­ty. Our ses­sion cook­ies are not per­ma­nent­ly stored on your com­put­er and expire when you leave. Per­ma­nent cook­ies are issued to Ser­vice vis­i­tors who link the Ser­vice from a search engine and are used only to per­mit RJPMD to attract qual­i­fied users to the Ser­vice. Our cook­ies are not used to send spam. We store cook­ie infor­ma­tion in aggre­gate form and use the aggre­gate infor­ma­tion to make improve­ments to the Ser­vice or in inter­nal reports on Ser­vice activ­i­ty. You may opt out of allow­ing cook­ies to be placed on your com­put­er. Refus­ing cook­ies dis­ables our abil­i­ty to include infor­ma­tion about your vis­it in our reg­u­lar mon­i­tor­ing of Ser­vice traffic.

Cook­ies and Sim­i­lar Tech­nol­o­gy Policy

What are cook­ies?

A cook­ie is a small amount of data sent from a web serv­er to your brows­er and stored on your com­put­er or mobile device’s hard dri­ve while you are view­ing the web­site. We may use both ses­sion cook­ies (which expire once you close your web brows­er) and per­sis­tent cook­ies (which stay on your com­put­er until you delete them) to pro­vide you with a more per­son­al and inter­ac­tive expe­ri­ence on our web­site. This type of infor­ma­tion is col­lect­ed to make the Ser­vice more use­ful to you and to tai­lor your expe­ri­ence with us to meet your spe­cial inter­ests and needs. We use and store this infor­ma­tion to pro­vide you with more per­son­al­ized and cus­tomized online ser­vices and to make our site more con­ve­nient, use­ful, valu­able and appeal­ing to you.

We use two broad cat­e­gories of cook­ies: (1) first par­ty cook­ies, served direct­ly by us to your com­put­er or mobile device, which we use to rec­og­nize your com­put­er or mobile device when it revis­its our web­site; and (2) third par­ty cook­ies, which are served by ser­vice providers on our web­site, and can be used by such ser­vice providers to rec­og­nize your com­put­er or mobile device when it vis­its oth­er websites.

Cook­ies we Use

The Ser­vice may use the fol­low­ing types of cook­ies for the pur­pos­es set out below:

TYPE OF COOK­IE PUR­POSE
Essen­tial Cookies These cook­ies are essen­tial to pro­vide you with ser­vices avail­able through our web­site and to enable you to use some of its fea­tures. With­out these cook­ies, the ser­vices that you have asked for can­not be pro­vid­ed, and we only use these cook­ies to pro­vide you with those services.
Func­tion­al­i­ty Cookies These cook­ies allow our web­site to remem­ber choic­es you make when you use the Ser­vice, such as remem­ber­ing your lan­guage pref­er­ences, remem­ber­ing your login details and remem­ber­ing the changes you make on oth­er parts of our web­site, which you can cus­tomize. The pur­pose of these cook­ies is to pro­vide you with a more per­son­al expe­ri­ence and to avoid you hav­ing to re-enter your pref­er­ences every time you vis­it the Service.
Ana­lyt­ics and Per­for­mance Cookies These cook­ies are used to col­lect infor­ma­tion about traf­fic to our web­site and how users use the Ser­vice. The infor­ma­tion gath­ered does not iden­ti­fy any indi­vid­ual vis­i­tor. The infor­ma­tion is aggre­gat­ed and anony­mous. The infor­ma­tion gath­ered may include the num­ber of vis­i­tors to the Ser­vice, the web­sites that referred them to our web­site, the pages they vis­it­ed on our web­site, what time of day they vis­it­ed our web­site, whether they have vis­it­ed our web­site before, and oth­er sim­i­lar infor­ma­tion.

We use Google Ana­lyt­ics for this pur­pose. Google Ana­lyt­ics uses its own cook­ies. You can find out more infor­ma­tion about Google Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies here and about how Google pro­tects your data here. You can pre­vent the use of Google Ana­lyt­ics relat­ing to your use of our Site by down­load­ing and installing the brows­er plu­g­in avail­able here.

Tar­get­ed and Adver­tis­ing Cookies These cook­ies track your brows­ing habits to enable us to show adver­tis­ing that is more like­ly to be of inter­est to you. These cook­ies use infor­ma­tion about your brows­ing his­to­ry to group you with oth­er users who have sim­i­lar inter­ests. Based on that infor­ma­tion, third par­ty adver­tis­ers can place cook­ies to enable them to show adver­tise­ments that we think will be rel­e­vant to your inter­ests while you are on third par­ty websites.
Social Media Cookies These cook­ies are used when you vis­it any pub­lic RJPMD page. A social net­work­ing web­site such as Face­book, Twit­ter or LinkedIn can record that you have vis­it­ed this page and could use this infor­ma­tion to serve you rel­e­vant ads that are in com­pli­ance with plat­form adver­tis­ing policies

Dis­abling cook­ies

If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept cook­ies from our ser­vices for any of the pur­pos­es described above, then you can typ­i­cal­ly instruct your brows­er, by chang­ing its set­tings, to remove or stop accept­ing cook­ies or to prompt you before accept­ing a cook­ie from the web­sites you vis­it. In order to do this, con­sult your browser’s tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion (instruc­tions are usu­al­ly locat­ed with­in the ​“set­tings,” ​“help” ​“tools” or ​“edit” facil­i­ty). Many browsers are set to accept cook­ies until you change your settings.

If you do not accept our cook­ies, you may expe­ri­ence some incon­ve­nience or not be able to use all por­tions of the ser­vices or all func­tion­al­i­ty of the services.

Pix­el tags

In addi­tion, we may use pix­el tags (also referred to as clear GIFs, web bea­cons, or web bugs) on the Ser­vice to track the actions of users on web­site. Pix­el tags are tiny graph­ic images with a unique iden­ti­fi­er, sim­i­lar in func­tion to cook­ies, which are used to track online move­ments of web users. In con­trast to cook­ies, which are stored on a user’s com­put­er hard dri­ve, pix­el tags are embed­ded invis­i­bly in web pages. Pix­el tags also allow us to send email mes­sages in a for­mat users can read, and they tell us whether emails have been opened, for exam­ple, to ensure that we are send­ing mes­sages that are of inter­est to our users. We may use this infor­ma­tion to reduce or elim­i­nate mes­sages sent to a user.

Do not track sig­nals

Some inter­net browsers may be con­fig­ured to send ​“Do Not Track” sig­nals to the online ser­vices that you vis­it. We cur­rent­ly do not respond to do not track sig­nals. To find out more about ​“Do Not Track,” please vis­it www​.allaboutd​nt​.com

Sites We Link To

If you choose to use any of the links we pro­vide to providers, spon­sors, and oth­er third par­ty resources, you will be leav­ing our Ser­vice and going to a new web site. While we take care in choos­ing the con­tent and links on our web­site, we accept no lia­bil­i­ty what­so­ev­er for third par­ty sites. Pro­tec­tion of your pri­va­cy at those oth­er sites will be gov­erned by the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy at that site. We’ve tak­en spe­cial care select­ing the com­pa­nies that are acces­si­ble through our web­site to try to ensure that they respect your pri­va­cy as we do, but please take the time to read the pri­va­cy poli­cies at their sites.

What Should Par­ents Know About Children?

We under­stand the impor­tance of pro­tect­ing children’s pri­va­cy in the inter­ac­tive world. We do not use the Ser­vice to know­ing­ly col­lect per­son­al infor­ma­tion from chil­dren under the age of thir­teen (13) with­out parental con­sent. If you are a child under 13 years of age, you are not per­mit­ted to use the Ser­vice and should not send any infor­ma­tion about your­self to us through the Service.

In the event that we become aware that we have col­lect­ed Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion from any child, we will dis­pose of that infor­ma­tion in accor­dance with the Children’s Online Pri­va­cy Pro­tec­tion Act and oth­er applic­a­ble laws and reg­u­la­tions. If you are a par­ent or guardian and you believe that your child under the age of 13 has pro­vid­ed us with infor­ma­tion with­out your con­sent, please con­tact us and we will take rea­son­able steps to ensure that such infor­ma­tion is delet­ed from our files.

Changes to this Policy

If we make any changes to this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy, we will let you know the effec­tive date of the changes and you can con­tact our Web­mas­ter if you would like to know more about what’s new. If you have any ques­tions or com­ments or receive any unwant­ed e‑mail from this Ser­vice, please con­tact our Web­mas­ter via e‑mail.

DAY OF SURGERY INFORMATION

Edwards Hospital

Arrival & Directions

Drive to the South parking garage. Free Valet parking is available during business hours. If you self-park, take the elevator from the garage to the first floor to enter the main hospital lobby. Wheelchairs are available if needed. Take the D elevator to the 2nd floor. Proceed to the Surgical and Endoscopy Check-In Desk. Here you and your family will be checked in and escorted to the Pre-op Area to be prepared for surgery. Up to two family members may wait with you until you are taken to surgery. Your family may then wait in the Surgical Waiting room until notified by the surgeon that the surgery has been completed. A receptionist will take down contact information so that your family may be easily reached to speak with Dr. Paul. Complimentary coffee is available for your family while in the Surgical Waiting room. The cafeteria and gift shop are on the ground floor in the North area of the hospital and the coffee shop is in the South area of the hospital for your family’s convenience.

Get Directions to Edwards Hospital

In the preoperative room you will be prepared for surgery. The team will be checking your vital signs, starting your IV, validating your medications, health history, lab results and any follow up for additional testing needed. At this time, they will obtain your consent for surgery and answer any questions you may still have. Your anesthesiologist will see you and your family prior to your surgery. Dr. Paul, Adam or Kevin  will mark your surgical site. You will be escorted to the operating room by cart. Your family can wait in the surgical waiting room. Dr. Paul will call them when surgery is completed.  If he can not reach them, he will leave a message with the Patient Liaison. Following surgery you will be taken to the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) where you will recover for an hour or more. During this time, pain and nausea control will be established and your vital signs will be monitored frequently.
