Find out which facilities and services may be impacted as we help serve the public health needs in our community.
BayCare’s top priority is the health and well-being of our communities. To protect you and our team members during this time, we’ve put enhanced safety measures in place at our facilities. All safety processes and cleaning procedures are based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Some of those measures include:
Everyone entering BayCare hospitals or surgery centers will have their temperature taken and be screened for symptoms of COVID-19.
All spaces, including treatment rooms and waiting areas, are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected on a consistent basis.
All team members will wear appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE) at all times. Patients are asked to wear a mask while in our facilities. If needed, a mask will be provided upon arrival.
All patients will be tested for COVID-19 before having any surgical or other invasive procedure.
All hospital patients being treated for or suspected of having COVID-19 are cared for in separate parts of the hospital.
Social distancing measures are in place, including limited furniture in waiting areas. Some facilities are offering check-in procedures via smartphone so patients can wait in their cars until it’s time for their appointment.
