PATIENT / VISITOR COMMUNICATION
As visitors are limited for safety reasons, we understand that patients may experience some added anxiety when coming to the hospital. To help relieve any uneasiness, Western Reserve Hospital has created a remote visitation program that utilizes iPads (supporting Apple and Samsung phones) allowing patients and family members to communicate “face-to-face” following any surgeries or procedures, or daily updates while in the hospital. Our clinical care team will assist patients and family members with instructions on this easy-to-use program. We will also contact a designated family member before a patient is discharged to provide them with an update following any surgical or diagnostic procedure.


SAFETY SCREENINGS

  • Health screenings are conducted for everyone who enters our facilities
  • All individuals, including physicians, nurses, staff, visitors, vendors and guests, are greeted by an individual who will take their temperature when entering
  • Brief screening questions will be asked concerning fever, new cough and/or shortness of breath and other flu-like symptoms
  • If symptoms are detected, individuals will be advised what to do based on the severity of the symptoms
  • Additionally, patients are contacted 24-48 hours prior to their scheduled surgery or procedure to check on their health

  • If a patient or visitor does not have a mask, one will be provided to them before they enter the building. Mask use instructions are also provided

SOCIAL DISTANCING

  • Surfaces such as exam tables, counters, chairs, door handles and restroom facilities receive around-the-clock cleaning throughout the day
