Currently, no visitors are allowed in units at PHV.
For patients arriving at the emergency department, family members are not permitted during the intake process unless it is instrumental for patient care. This visitor can remain with the patient for a maximum of 15 minutes.
We are working diligently to invite families back to be with their loved ones. It will be a gradual process, as we continue to be focused on stopping the spread of COVID-19, to keep our patients, residents and families safe.
At this time, we are able to take the small step of allowing families whose loved ones are at end of life to discuss special arrangements for one-time visitation with their care team.
All visitors are screened for symptoms or potential exposure to COVID-19. Those who screen positive for any symptoms will not be able to visit. All visitors are required to wear a mask.
“We understand this is a great hardship to both patients, residents and families, but we know that people with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable to this novel coronavirus, and after careful evaluation of the evolving risks of transmission, we feel it is the most sensible thing to do,” Precious Mayes., president and CEO of PHV.
We are encouraging the use of devices such as smartphones to communicate with patients and residents remotely, and the use of iPads for virtual visits. PHV is providing devices to patients and residents for virtual visitation to those who don’t have them.
Simple measures remain the first line of defense against viruses. We are urging the public to please continue to follow the usual guidelines:
Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you’re unable to wash your hands.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you’re unable to wash your hands.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cough and sneeze into your elbow.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are touched frequently (e.g., phones, doorknobs).
- Stay home if you are sick.
We thank our patients and their loved ones for their understanding as we work to ensure a safe environment for our patients and our staff.
