How We’re Keeping Patients Safe During the COVID-19 Recovery
Guided by our internationally respected infection prevention experts and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have taken a number of steps in addition to our standard rigorous infection control measures to ensure our facilities remain safe places for you to confidently receive care.
In-Person Appointments and Procedures
For some of our patients, safety means being seen in-person or scheduled for a procedure as quickly as possible. Our commitment to you is to provide the care you need, when you need it, as safely and conveniently as possible.
We ask that our patients reduce the number of people in our facilities and, therefore, the risk of exposure between patients, visitors and staff. We understand this can be difficult and appreciate your understanding.
Masks and Hand Sanitizer
- Masks for Staff: All staff wear masks. The type of mask staff members wear is determined by the type of care they provide, to best ensure their safety and the safety of our patients.
- Masks for Patients and Visitors: All patients and anyone with them will be asked to wear a mask while in our health care facilities. You may bring your own, or if you don’t have one, face masks may be available at check-in.
- Hand Sanitizer: Hand sanitizer is available at each entrance and at numerous locations throughout each building. Everyone is asked to sanitize their hands when they enter the building. In addition, each member of our health care staff sanitizes their hands before and after each patient encounter.
