COVID-19 Response

PATIENT SYMPTOM MONITORING

We are prepared to quickly identify and separate patients and families with symptoms of COVID-19. All patients and visitors will be screened upon entry to the facility and instructed to continue wearing a mask.

LIMITING VISITORS

We are restricting visitor access to only those who are essential for the patient's care. Visitors will be screened for fever and symptoms of COVID-19 prior to entry. Visitors will be asked to wear their cloth face covering and limit their movement in the facility.

STAFF SYMPTOM MONITORING

We are monitoring all staff for symptoms of COVID-19. We are instructing staff who have symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., fever, cough. shortness of breath) to stay home and not come to work.

CLEANING EFFORTS

We are continuing our routine cleaning and disinfection procedures as these procedures are recommended for protecting patients from COVID-19 in health centers. Any surface, supplies, or equipment located within the patient area will continue to be disinfected or discarded between patients.

EXTRA STAFF TRAINING

We are providing extra training for staff about the importance of hand hygiene, face masks, respiratory hygiene, proper use of PPE, cough etiquette and cleaning protocols.
