Please join us at Eddie Bever’s retirement party as we wish him well on his new adventure while enjoying drinks and cake at the Bistro on Thursday, December 13 from 2 – 4 p.m. Thank you, Eddie, for your 28 years of service!
Every once in a while it can be beneficial to take a break from your work day and broaden your perspective. Each week, we’ll be sharing a new TED Talk with topics that make you think. This week we feature a TED talk that explores why organizations should focus on intrinsic motivators for their employees. Click here to watch the video.
Widespread cases of the flu and respiratory viruses in the community make it necessary to implement changes to our visitation policy, which is intended to protect and ensure the well-being of our patients. Effective December 10, 2018, and until further notice, a few changes to visitation will be in place.
Visitors must meet the following requirements:
Women and Newborn Center — only siblings of the patient are allowed. No other children will be allowed.
NICU visitors must be 18 years and older.
Med/Surg and ICU visitors must be 12 years and older.
Any persons presenting with signs of illness will be asked not to enter the patient care areas.
Special considerations should be made for extenuating circumstances at the discretion of the Unit Directors or the Charge Nurse.
You can assist us in protecting our patients, visitors and staff by:
- Asking family to keep visitors to a minimum and consider the use of FaceTime or SKYPE instead of in-person visits.
- Recommending the use of hand sanitizer for their protection as well as others.
A return to routine visitation will be made as soon as possible and will be based on recommendations from physicians, infection prevention teams, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Please reach out to Heidi Hough at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Collection boxes for Joyful Journeys will be out until December 20. The toys collected will be given to children in Adams County. There are two donation boxes: one is at the lobby doors of the main hospital, the other is at the lobby doors between Medical Plazas 1 & 2.
