MountainView Hospital - June 24, 2020

Keeping you safe.

The health and safety of our patients, caregivers and community is our top priority. At MountainView Hospital, the precautions we've taken and the new protections we've put in place make our clinical care facilities one of the safest possible places to receive healthcare at this time.

We have always focused on safety, which is why we've achieved The Leapfrog Group's A rating four times in a row.

Our safety measures continue to be enhanced to keep you safe:

  • Screening all patients and visitors
  • Temperature checks
  • Social distancing
  • Required masking
  • Enhanced cleaning
  • Hand hygiene

Because we deal with infectious diseases on a daily basis, we are uniquely equipped to safely manage coronavirus. Elevated safety measures, constant housekeeping, access to alcohol-based hand gel and regular sanitation are all part of our daily routines.

Our caregivers are screened for COVID-19 symptoms and tested when necessary. Our colleagues are not permitted to work if they are experiencing any respiratory symptoms. Universal masking is in place for all colleagues, and we are appropriately stocked with personal protective equipment for all our clinical teams.

Surgery.

If you are coming in for a scheduled surgery, patients will be contacted prior to their procedure and information will be collected at that time. It is important that we are able to reach you by phone or email, please make sure we have correct contact information for you. Only patients who require evaluation or testing that has to be conducted at the hospital before surgery will be asked to appear in person for a pre-op visit.

Pregnancy.

If you are visiting the hospital because you are having a baby - first congratulations! We are here to help you and your family have a safe, positive experience. Our L&D unit is a locked down unit to keep you and your baby safe.

To reduce unnecessary traffic through the unit, we have canceled maternity unit tours and instead have made an online tour available for new parents. Our new parent classes may be canceled or have reduced class sizes, please check our calendar and events section for the latest information.

Emergencies.

Delaying medical care can have dire consequences. If you would normal go to the emergency room, you should still seek treatment - even during a pandemic.

Hospitals remain safe places to receive care. There is a perception that you might be exposed to COVID-19 or other infection if you seek medical care. That is simply not true. Hospitals have extensive safety measures in place to prevent infections disease from spreading, from the coronavirus to TB. Not seeking medical treatment for an emergent health situation is much more dangerous than going to the hospital at this time.

Time matters and can greatly impact outcomes. We are here for you are well-equipped to handle any health concern you may have.

We remain focused on providing you with outstanding care, and have dedicated staff working hard to ensure you have a safe, healthy and positive pregnancy and birth. Our first priority is providing you with safe and effective care.
