COVID-19 What we're doing to help keep you safe
As global and domestic cases of 2019 Novel Coroanvirus (COVID-19) rise, we have implemented additional measures at our hospital and clinics to help protect the health of everyone we serve.
We are actively monitoring updates and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), state and local health departments.
We have procedures in place should a patient present with symptoms. Screening protocols have been activated, and any individual who meets the criteria established by the CDC and depending on severity, is placed in isolation either at home or admitted and local health departments are notified to assist with further testing.
We are also carefully monitoring supply chain issues to ensure adequate personal protection equipment (PPE) and other supplies are available as demand increases.
To protect the health and safety of Barrett Hospital & HealthCare’s patients, guests, coworkers and community, we are restricting all visitors. This helps us to prevent and slow the spread of infectious illnesses such as COVID-19.
Visitors are not allowed at any Barrett Hospital & HealthCare care site. This includes both the Hospital and Clinic buildings. Compassionate exceptions are coordinated and authorized with the clinic or department manager before entry into any building.
For patients hospitalized at Barrett, care teams encourage patients and families to connect via personal devices for phone calls and video chat (FaceTime, Google Duo, Facebook Messenger, etc.)
is to testing and screening estimated costs which may be ordered and provided at the time of service, which will affect a total bill for service.
We are asking all patients to wear a cloth face mask when coming into the Clinic and consider wearing a cloth face mask when you are out in the community.
