How We Keep You Safe
Our hospitals and clinics are using appropriate infection prevention measures to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.
- Screening: Patients receive temperature checks and screening questionnaires at facility entrances.
- Visitor restrictions: We are limiting visitors in our hospitals and clinics.
- Wearing masks: All visitors and staff are required to wear masks.
- Testing: Patients are tested for COVID-19 upon admission and before any surgeries.
- Quarantining: We have separate units for COVID-19 patients, which use strict care plans to avoid the spread of infection.
- Cleaning and disinfecting: We've implemented appropriate cleaning procedures in our facilities.
- Using PPE: Our providers are prepared with the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) that is recommended for your care.
- Social distancing: We're staggering appointments and encouraging physical distancing so fewer people are in our waiting rooms at one time.
How You Can Stay Safe
