GRMC also continues infusion services (for antibiotic and chemotherapy) and radiation therapy. The Rehabilitation department will resume seeing patients at this time.
To ensure social distancing, GRMC has been actively reducing patient visits to the hospital, prioritizing those in need of more acute follow-up. Outpatients requiring less urgent follow up will be contacted and offered the option of a Telehealth visit. Telehealth allows patients to participate in audio/visual appointments at home via computer, tablet, or smartphone. Patients without internet can request their appointment take place by telephone.
Although GRMC has suspended visitation, outpatients who require assistance getting to their appointments will be allowed one companion. The only other exception to the suspended visitation policy will be children brought to the Emergency Room, who may be accompanied by one parent or legal guardian.
GRMC would like to remind the community that visitors are no longer allowed to wait in the surgical lobby on the second floor. The staff will obtain the name and contact number of the person(s) we should notify when surgical patients are ready to be safely discharged. Our current morgue policy limiting viewings to no more than five (5) people remains in place.
Per Executive Order 2020-09, everyone must wear a mask. GRMC will not be providing masks because of limited supplies. Everyone entering GRMC must also be pre-screened. Anyone not wearing a mask or refusing to be screened will be denied entry.
