Visitation and COVID 19

To Our Patient’s Families:

 

The health and safety of our patients are always of primary importance.  We continue to monitor the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and recommendation related to COVID-19 and are confident in the precautionary measures we have established.  I want to assure you that as of this time we have not had any patients with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.

 

This continues to be an evolving situation, and there are continued efforts to respond aggressively to the community spread of the virus.  We have decided to cease patient visitation until April 20th.  We understand that this may be a hardship for our patients and their families and will make every effort to provide resources for telephone and/or video contacts.

 

We want to ensure your loved ones are protected.  In addition, we encourage each of you to follow the everyday preventive guidelines from the CDC to keep you and your family healthy:

 

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover you cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Wash your hand often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.

Stay informed.  The CDC’s COVID-19 Situation Summary will be regularly updated as information becomes available.

 

Should you have any questions regarding this change to visitation please contact the facility Director of Quality, Compliance and Risk.
