Corona Virus Services

Corona Virus

The Corona Virus situation continues to evolve each day. To protect our patients and staff, we have made temporary changes as outlined below.

Germ Control

All patients entering our buildings will be asked to sanitize their hands. Hand washing is one of the most effective weapons we have against this virus.

If you have a cough, you will be required to wear a mask. Some departments may take your temperature and/or ask you to wear a mask whether you have a cough or not.

Visitation
We currently have a No Visitation Policy. It is important that we limit potential exposure to our patients and staff. This policy applies across the facility to include all inpatient areas, emergency department, waiting areas, clinics, and the café. Limited visitation will be allowed only in the case of a critical patient or a patient on compassionate care.

Scheduled Appointments
Some surgeries or appointments may need to be rescheduled. Your provider will reach out to you to discuss your plan of care. We want to work with you to develop a plan of care that is best for you.

Screenings
For safety, we are screening for at risk patients. You may be asked certain questions such as: Do you have a cough, fever or recent travel? The CDC has indicated that cough or fever are signs of the Covid-19 illness. Asking these questions will help our staff prepare to care for you in the safest possible manner.

Guidance
The changes mentioned above are part of a plan created based on CDC guidelines. We will continue to review the information and make changes as necessary to ensure your safety and that of our staff.

If you are concerned you have been exposed to the Corona Virus, please reach out to your primary care provider for guidance. If you need to visit your primary care or an emergency department, please call prior to your arrival. Doing so will allow the healthcare team to meet your needs in the most effective and safest way.
