COVID-19: Patient Safety

 

Our world has changed drastically over the last few months, but one thing remains certain: our commitment to your health and safety.

We have implemented enhanced infection prevention measures at all our facilities — in addition to the same strict standards we have always held — to give you peace of mind while seeking care.

These safety precautions include but are not limited to:

  • Point-of-entry screenings for patients and visitors
  • Universal masking at all hospitals
  • Modified hospital visitation policy
  • Social distancing protocols
  • Frequent and rigorous disinfection of all touched surfaces
  • Hand sanitizer stations readily available
  • Symptomatic patients treated in separate areas
  • Convenient telehealth visits available for Maury Regional Medical Group patients (learn more about this service here)

Please note that per our updated hospital visitation guidelines, which went into effect June 1, patients and approved visitors are expected to arrive masked and wear their mask at all times while in the hospital. Visitors must be age 16 or older, will be screened upon arrival and must be free of any respiratory symptoms or fever. Learn more about out updated guidelines here.
