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.
Barrett Hospital & HealthCare patients will now be allowed only one visitor per patient subject to the following.
People with respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, sore throat, aches, fever) are not permitted to visit patients at the hospital.
We are screening all visitors in order to protect our patients and staff and looking for any of the following symptoms:
Fever (greater than 100.0 degrees)
Shortness of breath
Visitors with any of these symptoms will not be able to enter the hospital or clinic.
