Campbell County Health (CCH) is taking some initial steps back to a recovery of operations, using a gradual approach with patient and staff safety as the first concern.
As of Monday, May 4, the Main Entrance of the Campbell County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) is open. Some elective surgical cases, outpatient radiology services and additional lab services will reopen to the public.
Campbell County Medical Group clinics are developing plans to see more patients in their offices, although phone visits and virtual visits will continue as options for patient care. These outpatient services will use a phased-in approach where safety comes first, not volume.
All patients and support persons are screened for respiratory symptoms, and temperatures are taken before entering the hospital, or clinic. All patients and support persons are given a wristband at hospital entrances to verify that they have been screened.
Social distancing requirements are practiced in all areas of the facility, at least six feet apart at places like screening areas, patient registration, or in line at the Coffee Shoppe.
All staff, patients, and support persons will be required to wear masks while in CCH facilities. Cloth masks are provided at entrances. Staff will wear masks appropriate to their job and exposure potential. All staff and providers are screened for respiratory symptoms twice per day with temperature checks.
CCH follows the CDC guidelines and disinfects offices and public areas with bleach frequently throughout the day. Exam rooms are cleaned after each patient visit to the highest medical standards.
Certain services will remain closed during this first phase of recovery:
- Cafeteria, which is only open to staff
- Gift Shoppe
- Medical Records (accessible by phone)
- Valet Service
- Wellness, required blood draws can be done in the Lab with a physician order
- All events and group classes are cancelled, which includes the Step-up program, BHS group therapy, community classes, and more
Visitor restrictions remain in place in many areas of the organization:
- Children who are under the age of 18 may have one adult with them
- Adults with mobility, cognitive or other health issues can have one adult support person
- Surgical patients and Maternal Child patients can have one adult support person
- The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center will remain closed to visitors, due to the risks for their vulnerable population.
