Southeastern Med has begun expanding available services and gradually moving toward full operation again—in accordance with the latest guidance from the state government and the Department of Health. It’s important to emphasize our processes have changed to ensure your ongoing safety. For the foreseeable future, we will continue to implement a strict set of safety policies that we believe are vital to ensuring the well-being of our patients, our associates, and our providers. We are committed to delivering excellent care in a safe, supportive environment and appreciate your understanding and patience with these changes. Your partnership is key in our collective battle against the Coronavirus.
Our ongoing safety enhancements, which have been in effect since early March, include:
- Limiting the number of visitors to the hospital
- Using signage in waiting areas, elevators, cafe, etc., to establish clear social distancing (6 feet apart)
- Requiring temperature checks of associates and patients
- Requiring associates and visitors to wear protective face coverings
In the weeks ahead, Southeastern Med will be scheduling an increasing number of elective surgeries, including those delayed by the Governor’s previous oder. We are also restarting imaging services, We strongly encourage anyone with concerns—including those unrelated to Covid-19—to call their physician and schedule an appointment.
“Patients should not delay care out of fear.” our Chief Nursing Officer Gina Woods explains, “Our hospital is, in fact, a very safe place to be. We have always made patient safety our number one priority and that has not changed.”
The physicians of Superior Med have also implemented processes to ensure your safety during in-office visits and continue to offer virtual telehealth options.
