2019 Novel Coronavirus and Patient Safety

As healthcare providers, our first priority is serving our patients and community. We are taking precautions to ensure we can continue caring for our patients. In addition, the CDC has provided recommended preventive measures to help reduce the spread of the virus.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid shaking hands if you feel sick or are around others that may be sick
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and discard it in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are frequently touched

We hope that you and those around you remain safe during this healthcare crisis
