Sharing information to help you stay informed and educated about the symptoms and prevention of the coronavirus.
The Staff at Clara Barton Hospital and Clinics have been working around the clock to ensure the safety of both our patients and our staff. We will continue to keep you informed of the latest updates and procedures being implemented at Clara Barton to better protect you, your family, patients, and Clara Barton Employees. Please know we are fully prepared to care for you in the event you or a loved one are diagnosed with the virus and are doing our very best to help prevent the spread of this virus throughout our communities.
Please be aware of the following:
RESTRICTED VISITORS POLICY
As we begin to ease our visitor restrictions, we are now allowing
All inpatients to have one designated visitor for the extent of their stay. The visitor must check-in at the front desk for screening each visit. While in the hospital we ask that the visitor wears a mask at all times and stays in the patient room. Exceptions to this policy may be made on a case by case basis regarding end-of-life situations. While our limited visitor policy is in place, please consider an alternate means of providing support:
All Clinic and ER patients to have one guest to accompany them during their visit.
Patients having a procedure are asked to arrange a ride to and from their procedure, but are not allowed to bring a visitor with them at this time unless the patient is a minor or requires assistance. Family members/caregivers will be consulted by the surgeon after the procedure via phone. When the patient is ready to go home, their ride will be notified.
We ask that those recieving outpatient services at Clara Barton Hospital please refrain from bringing others with you. This helps us to maintain social distancing in our lobbies and waiting rooms.
These changes reflect Clara Barton Hospital’s commitment to ensure the safety of our patients, employees and communities and to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We will lift this restriction as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. We appreciate your cooperation during this difficult time.
When coming to any Clara Barton Facility we ask that you bring and wear a mask. Please do not remove your mask until you have left the facility.
Patients arriving at both Clara Barton Hospital or any Clara Barton Medical Clinic will be met at the door by a Clara Barton staff member who will immediately initiate a screening. Please be sure to stop and allow for these screening procedures, as it will assist us in determining if the patient has symptoms of the coronavirus.
We encourage you to continue practicing good hand hygiene and social distancing to help prevent the spread of this virus. This includes social distancing in our lobby areas. We are doing our best to streamline patients to the patient room or service area as quickly as possible and mitiagte large crowds in our lobbies and waiting rooms.
Clara Barton Medical Clinics will no longer have walk-in clinic until further notice. All visits will be scheduled by appointment. Lab draws will also not be available by walk-in at the clinic, but are still available by walk-in at the hospital. If you need to schedule an appointment or would like to schedule an appointment for lab draws, please call your clinic location of choice.
Clara Barton Medical Clinic is now offering telehealth services, allowing you to be seen by your provider in the comfort of your own home. If you wish to schedule a tele-health visit with your provider, please call the clinic at 620-653-2386.
If you feel as if you have symptoms of the coronavirus and plan to be seen at the clinic or in the ER, please call us before your arrival at 620-653-2386. Calling ahead allows us to take the proper precautions necessary in order to avoid the potential spread of the virus to other patients or staff members. When you call, your call will be triaged and you will be asked a few questions. They will then direct you to the appropriate area of the hospital or clinic.
