As always Mission Health is working continually to ensure we remain a safe place to work and provide care.
To protect our patients and staff, Mission Health has been screening all patients and visitors to all of our hospitals and hospital access has been limited. In addition to those restrictions already in place, beginning Tuesday, June 23, 2020 all Mission Health hospitals updated visitation to all of our facilities to Level 2. Each patient will be allowed one (1) designated adult patient advocate per day, between 9 am – 8 pm. All visitors will be screened and required to wear a mask.
There is no change in visitation policy regarding COVID-19 patients: visitors will not be allowed for COVID-19 positive patients or for patients awaiting a COVID-19 test result.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been learning more and more about how to keep both patients and staff safe. These uncertain times have been tough on our patients, their families and our colleagues and we cannot emphasize enough our compassion for everyone during these uncertain times.
Having a family member or loved one with our patients when they are in our care is important as is our responsibility to keep our patients and families, as well as our colleagues and the communities we serve, safe.
Screenings and access restrictions are in place at all Mission Health locations, regional hospitals and CarePartners. We want to ensure that we remain a continual resource for the communities we serve and are committed to delivering the most effective care with the best possible results.
As a reminder to protect yourself and prevent the spread of illnesses, please practice the three Ws: Wear a mask, Wait 6 feet apart and Wash your hands frequently using either soap and water or alcohol-based hand gel for at least 20 seconds.
