Keeping You Safe
For your health and safety, Southwest General is following all current
guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Ohio Department
of Health (ODH) to assure that the proper protections and precautions
are in place to provide care. These safety measures include:
Masking: All patients, guests and employees are REQUIRED to wear a facial covering
in all Southwest General facilities.
Screening: Everyone who enters our facilities is screened for temperature and signs
Social Distancing: We encourage proper social distancing (six feet apart) in all public areas,
including waiting rooms.
Enhanced Cleaning: In addition to Southwest General’s enhanced cleaning protocols and
procedures, designated team members now routinely clean and disinfect
high-touch spaces, equipment and furniture every hour throughout the day.
Hand Hygiene: We follow proper handwashing policies, and, in addition to frequent hand
washing, we encourage regular use of hand sanitizer.
Telehealth Appointments: We offer both video (online) and phone visit options for physician appointments,
Behavioral Health services and Physical Therapy services
In addition to the measures above, we care for all infectious patients
in isolation, away from non-infectious patients. Also, we monitor the
use of personal protective equipment (PPE) to assure that caregivers use
the appropriate PPE at all times to care for patients.
Please know that we are doing everything we can to help ensure that our
patients, staff and community remain safe.
