COVID: WHAT IS AVALA DOING?

AVALA’S priority is always the health and safety of our patients, physicians, staff and community. AVALA is keeping in close communication with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to monitor this evolving situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

At AVALA you can feel confident that we are doing everything possible to protect our community’s health and safety.

AVALA Hospital, Imaging Center, and Therapy Clinics are following the CMS mandate for COVID vaccines for our team members, physicians, vendors, and any person who provides care, treatment, or other services at AVALA.

VISITOR INFORMATION

To further protect the health of our patients, staff, and the community and prevent the potential spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are applying guidelines on our campus. A modified visitor policy has been applied across all AVALA campuses until further notice.

VISITOR POLICY GUIDELINES

  • Anyone allowed entrance into an AVALA campus location MUST wear mask. By entering an AVALA campus location, each individual is attesting that they are well and free of signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Beginning Monday, November 1, 2021: One visitor is allowed entrance into the lobbies or admit areas of any AVALA campus, excluding pain and eye procedures. 

INPATIENT STAY INFORMATION

  • All non-vaccinated inpatients and inpatients who have a positive COVID screening will be given a COVID test 72 hours prior to surgery. 
  • Beginning Monday, November 1, 2021: All inpatients are limited to one visitor/caregiver (18 years or older). The visitor must remain the same for the entire length of stay for the patient. Inpatient visitors will need to bring their COVID vaccination card or proof of a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of their patient’s admit date to be allowed into the facility.
  • Inpatient visitors will be allowed to wait in their patient’s room. If the patient’s room is not available, the visitor may wait in the lobby.
  • Our Private Chef will have gourmet meals prepared for all inpatients and their 1 visitor will be offered meal options for a nominal fee.
  • Inpatients must bring home medications for their stay.
