What to Expect When Visiting DHS:
It has come to our attention that the community is concerned about the safety of our medical facilities at Davis Medical Center due to COVID-19.
We want to assure everyone that Davis Medical Center is a safe environment. We have taken precautions to ensure that the safety of each patient and staff member is secured to the best of our ability. We are diligent on proper PPE and sanitation. We have ionization and ultraviolet systems installed in our air duct system to ensure the air quality is safe for all patients, visitors, and staff members entering Davis Medical Center.
Your health is of the utmost importance to us. If you have a scheduled appointment or procedure, it is safe to come to our facilities.
All patients entering our facilities must wear a face mask.
If you do not have one, we will provide one for you.
All visitors will now be temperature checked upon arrival and asked COVID-19 screening questions.
VISITORS AT DAVIS MEDICAL CENTER
Davis Medical Center has implemented visitation restrictions to their inpatient care settings. Outpatient services still allow one healthy visitor per patient.
“We’re making these changes proactively,” said Dr. Catherine “Mindy” Chua DO, FAAFP, FMNM, CPE, Davis Health System Chief Medical Officer. “As county COVID cases continue to rise, we are adjusting policies to maintain a clean, safe environment for patients and our staff.”
• The Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Clinical Decision Unit (CDU), Inpatient Med Surge (North 2), and Laurel Place will allow no patient visitation at this time. In the event of an extenuating circumstance, special provisions will be made with a spouse or immediate family.
• Emergency Department patients are allowed one person to accompany them. They must wear a mask, and remain with the patient at all times. Other visitors must remain in the vehicle. Compassionate care exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
“The change to our inpatient areas permits us to create a lower risk of disease spread or infection, among our most at-risk population,” added Chua.
• Family practice and specialty clinics and lab and radiology services are operating normally. Patients are permitted one healthy visitor in these areas and face coverings are mandatory.
• In the Family Birthing Center, expectant mothers, and their support persons are allowed before, during, and after delivery of the baby. No other family members will be permitted at this time.
Visitation rules are enforced for the protection of guests, patients, and staff, and are subject to change in response to future COVID activity.
Additional instructions include:
• All visitors will wear a mask throughout their entire stay. Masks will be available for those who do not have their own.
• All visitors will practice proper hand hygiene.
• Visitors must be age 18 or older.
• Once a visitor leaves Davis Medical Center, he/she will not be permitted back on that same day.
