In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic and in a proactive approach to keep all our patients, family members, staff and other vendors safe, we have implemented visitor restrictions. We are not allowing any visitors into our facilities except for essential personnel. The only exception is for visitors of end-of-life patients.
At Arkansas Continued Care Hospital, want to ensure we are intentional about ensuring the welfare of our patients, staff and all visitors. We are asking for everyone to wear masks and keep distance, and we are requiring ALL who are allowed to enter our facility to consent to a temperature check via a noninvasive thermometer. We are also not accepting any personal packaged deliveries at this time, such as clothes, flowers, etc.
If any of the parties mentioned above exhibit a temperature greater than 100.5 degrees, they will not be allowed to enter the facility or patient care areas. If the temperature check is refused, we will refuse access to our facility as a safety measure for all personnel.
We understand that this is extremely difficult for our patients and their families, but we are trying to make decisions in the best interest of both our patients and staff. We have the technology in place for virtual visits so that our patients and their families can keep in touch during this time.
In addition to the safety measures we have put in place, our hospital is equipped with negative pressure rooms and an entire floor of isolation rooms to prevent the spread of airborne disease.
We will continue to follow the CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19. For current and up-to-date Coronavirus (COVID-19) information, please visit the CDC Website.
Thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times.
