To everyone who needs us now, Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital is here to deliver the care you deserve. Our Safe Care Commitment is in effect across the Mass General Brigham system during the COVID-19 pandemic. We strive to provide the safest possible environment for our patients, visitors and staff.
We screen visitors and encourage the use of our pre-screen tool to our facilities for symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Any visitor with symptoms is not allowed to enter our facilities.
We test and screen patients for COVID-19.
Admitted patients to our hospitals are tested for COVID-19 before admission. Patient are tested again a few days into their admission.
Admitted patients are screened daily for symptoms.
Patients visiting our facilities are screened for symptoms. If symptomatic, patients are cared for virtually or in designated areas. These designated areas are where we use personal protective equipment (PPE) recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
When providing care in the home, we screen patients for symptoms before the visit.
