Screening, Separating, Sanitizing and Safeguarding

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:

Continued Entrance Screening

Everyone entering BayCare hospitals or surgery centers will have their temperature taken and be screened for symptoms of COVID-19.

Constant Cleaning

All spaces, including treatment rooms and waiting areas, are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected on a consistent basis.

Enhanced Use of PPE

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.

COVID-19 Testing

All patients will be tested for COVID-19 before having any surgical or other invasive procedure.

Separate Treatment Areas

All hospital patients being treated for or suspected of having COVID-19 are cared for in separate parts of the hospital.

Restricted Visitation

Visitors are not allowed in BayCare facilities, except in limited circumstances such as labor and delivery or end of life situations. Current Visitation Policy

Social Distancing

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.
