Employees wash or sanitize their hands each time they enter and exit a patient’s room. They also wear Personal Protection Equipment (gown, gloves, face shields, or goggles) when they enter the room of a patient with an infectious
illness. Employees safely dispose of these items before going into the next patient room to keep clothing free from germs so they may safely care for other patients. Beaumont is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) guidelines and screening protocols and following infection control prevention best practices. We are also remaining in close communication with state and county public health officials to monitor the spread of the virus.
Please know that all hospitals and health systems regularly prepare for disease outbreaks, conduct regular preparedness drills, and are able to adapt quickly to infectious disease outbreaks. We are always training our staff on how to protect
patients and themselves as they care for patients.
