Drive Thru Covid-19 Screenings

Memorial Hospital & Manor resumed  COVID-19 drive thru services  October 27, 2020. Drive thru services are provided Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2pm-3pm under the breeze way in front of the hospital until further notice. Patients must have a physician/provider order for testing. Drive through services will be utilized for symptomatic patients only. All non-symptomatic patients will be tested inside the hospital in the out-patient lab. Non-symptomatic patients will enter the hospital through the Emergency entrance for screening and then proceed to the front registration to be registered. Non-symptomatic patients will be swabbed in the out-patient laboratory located in the front of the hospital after the registration process is complete.

Preoperative (non-symptomatic) patients needing COVID-19 PCR screening will be collected in the outpatient collection area inside the hospital Monday through Friday from 7 am to 2 pm. Patients should enter through the Emergency room entrance for screening. Once screening is complete the patient will go directly to the out-patient lab (in the front of the hospital).

We are following the most current guidelines for testing provided by the Georgia Department of Public Health.    As guidelines change, we will update our policy.

#MaskUpGeorgia

In partnership with Georgia Hospital Association, Memorial Hospital and Manor is asking citizens to participate in the “#Mask Up Georgia” Campaign to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage organizations, businesses, and individuals to post on social media pictures or videos of themselves wearing masks and to accompany these posts with #MaskUpGA and a message about why they “mask up.”

“This campaign is about Georgians coming together for the greater good,” said GHA President and CEO Earl Rogers. “We, along with Gov. Brian Kemp, urge everyone to make the choice to wear a mask as part of collective efforts to stop the spread of this virus. Together, we can help keep our state healthy and well.”

MHM CEO, Jim Lambert, is asking everyone to wear their mask out in the community when they’re in stores or restaurants and can’t social distance. He encourages MHM employees and stated, “We as healthcare workers, can set an example for others in the community. The more people see others wearing a mask the more the more likely they are to wear one. None of us want to see a spike of Covid-19 cases in our community so it is incumbent on us to model behavior that can help get us all safely through this pandemic.”

Come on everyone! Let’s see those pics of you masking up. Post them and tell us why you “mask up.” Remember to include #MaskUpGA with your message and photo.

Message from the CEO

The past few months have been extremely challenging as we have all dealt with Covid-19 at home and at work.   Thank you all for your hard work and focus since the beginning of the outbreak. Your efforts have been key in helping contain the outbreak locally. Other parts of the state are seeing a growing number of cases and hospitalizations and our numbers are trending in that direction.

 

The best thing we can do to maintain our low rate of infection is to remain focused following our infection control policies regarding the appropriate wearing of PPE and masks at work.   I know you are tired of wearing masks but this the best way to protect each other from this disease. I recently heard someone say “You wear a mask to protect your fellow co-workers and they wear theirs to protect you”.   Let’s take care of each other and our patients by wearing masks as appropriate.

 

I want to encourage you to wear your mask out in the community when you’re in stores or restaurants and can’t social distance. We, as healthcare workers, can set an example for others in the community. The more people see others wearing a mask the more the more likely they are to wear one. None of us want to see a spike of Covid-19 cases in our community so it is incumbent on us to model behavior that can help get us all safely through this pandemic.

 

Please join me in wearing a mask and encouraging others to wear theirs so we can keep the community, ourselves and our families safe.

 

Thank you and stay safe!!!
