Mammoth Hospital COVID-19 Response
Fighting the spread of COVID-19 takes all of us in our community working together. At Mammoth Hospital, here are some of the things we are doing to keep us all safe and healthy:
Elective surgery cases and clinic visits are either being postponed or rescheduled as a phone/video visit when possible.
Patients who require surgery or clinic visits will still be seen, but only if it is felt to be absolutely necessary.
Any patients requiring emergent medical attention for any reason will of course be seen as they always are.
Greeters are now at every patient entrance to screen patients for fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Any patient with these symptoms will be given a mask to wear and directed to the Emergency Department with the phone number to call to speak with an Emergency Room nurse.
Non-essential entrances and exits are closed to the public. This is an important safety measure to ensure that only designated employees enter our facilities.
As a part of social distancing, Mammoth Hospital is limiting visitors. Adult patients may be accompanied by one assigned care companion only if the adult patient is not capable of making medical decisions on their own behalf. Patients under the age of 18 may be accompanied by one parent or guardian.
Mammoth Hospital is now operating a limited “car clinic,” where patients can be seen in their own vehicles. The goal is to not only protect patients from coming into contact with others who may be sick, but to also minimize contact with health care providers.
