Covid-19 Safety

Adventist Health is committed to your safety and well-being. Providing you access to safe, excellent and compassionate care has always been our top priority. You can be confident that we have taken proactive steps to protect you and our community.

We continue to work with the local public health departments, and our highly trained infection prevention practitioners are closely following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Because of the robust infectious disease protocols we have in place, we are taking every possible precaution for the safety of you and your family, including:

  • All staff members are screened daily for COVID-19 and abide by the physical distancing guidelines except when providing patient care.
  • A member of our team will call you at home before your visit to see if you or anyone in the household has a fever or other symptom of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
  • Our team always washes their hands in front of you and wears a mask and other protective gear to reduce infections and make you more comfortable with your care.
  • All patients and family members are provided with face masks and are required to wear them while in the presence of our staff in your home, unless a clinician asks that it be removed.
  • Our team always washes their hands and cleans and disinfects all equipment that is brought into your home and while it is in your home.
  • In-house testing: Our facilities offer in-house testing for hospital patients who are vulnerable and show symptoms.
  • COVID-19 patients: We have taken extra measures to prevent the transmission of contagious diseases. Any patient experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms is immediately tested and active steps are taken to ensure the safety of you and others in the household.

If you have any questions or concerns about COVID-19 or the safety practices of our team, reach out to your provider right away.
