What To Expect If You Visit the Hospital during the COVID-19 Pandemic

  • Every person that enters the hospital or its acute care facilities will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms, including a temperature check. Every person will be given a dated wristband that expires in 24 hours.

 

  • Every person inside the hospital will be required to wear a mask or cloth face covering at all times while inside the hospital.

 

  • COVID-19 units will be separated from other units on hospital floors to prevent disease transmission.

 

  • Hospital staff will practice social distancing in waiting rooms, hallways, etc.

 

  • Patients with suspected or confirmed coronavirus cases are kept completely separated from other patients in the hospital. In our emergency centers, COVID patients are placed in closed rooms or isolation rooms until transfer.

 

  • Specialized UV air filters are stationed at strategic locations in all three of our emergency centers and hospitals. These UV fans kill any form of airborne virus.

 

  • Any equipment that is used inside a COVID unit is routinely disinfected with Cavicide wipes, hospital-grade surface disinfectant.
