Our Safe Care Commitment
Your need for health care doesn’t take a break, even during a pandemic. Patient safety is of the utmost concern and remains Lake Health’s number one priority. In order to keep our patients and visitors safe while COVID-19 remains a threat, we have implemented our Safe Care Commitment which includes the following changes:
Before your scheduled appointment, our team will call and ask you screening questions about any symptoms you’re currently experiencing. Patients with certain symptoms will be asked to reschedule routine appointments. We also have convenient virtual visit options so you can get care from the comfort and safety of home. Lake Health Physician Group offices offer convenient online scheduling for both virtual and in-person visits.
When entering our facilities, all patients and visitors will receive a temperature check. You may see some changes to your registration process, such as plexiglass partitions and disinfection of items such as pens and ID cards before our registration staff hands them to you. Surgery patients are tested for COVID-19 before their procedures to ensure extra safety.
Masks are required for all patients, visitors and employees entering any Lake Health hospital, outpatient facility or physician’s office unless a disability prevents them from wearing a mask. If you cannot wear a mask due to a disability, please ask for an accommodation prior to appointment.
All patient rooms and common areas of our hospitals, including the lobbies, waiting areas and public restrooms, are being more frequently cleaned and disinfected for your protection. A special UV light system is also being used to help kill pathogens on high-touch surfaces in high-traffic areas of the hospitals, including the emergency department. Lobbies have new furniture layouts and seating restrictions to help promote proper social distancing while waiting.
Visitor restrictions remain in effect for all of our facilities.
Frequent hand washing – by you and our team members – helps to slow the spread of germs. Please use the hand sanitizer stations or soap and water to clean your hands properly while visiting.
