Masking up for you and ME!
The health and safety of our patients, visitors and team members is our top priority. We must protect each other to ensure our workforce remains healthy and able to care for those in our communities who need us. To that end, it is our expectation that every team member adheres to the following guidelines:
- Every team member is required to wear a mask AT ALL TIMES while in any CMH facility. The ONLY exceptions are if you are in your office space alone, or if you are eating or drinking. When unmasked and eating or drinking, you are expected to remain at least SIX FEET away from the closest person. Masks need to be worn over the nose and the mouth to be effective.
- While patient facing in any CMH facilities, team members MUST be wearing eye protection. If you see a team member not wearing eye protection when they should, please politely remind them of the policy. Regular eye glasses alone do not quality as eye protection.
- Every team member is required to complete the daily screening survey and answer all questions honestly.
- Every team member is required to perform hand hygiene upon entering their facilities or practices, in addition to entering and exiting any patient care rooms.
- All conference and meeting rooms have occupancy limits which are posted. Please adhere to these numbers and do not bring in chairs from other spaces.
- Limit the number of people in the elevators at the same time and take the stairs whenever possible to allow our patients and visitors to use the elevators.
- Please lead by example with your friends, family and community by wearing a mask anytime you are in public or within 6 feet of someone who does not live with you, practicing hand hygiene and continue to social distance and avoid large gatherings. By following these guidelines, you not only protecting yourself and your loved ones, but you also help to protect your coworkers and our patients.
Team members need to remind and encourage their patients to wear masks during outpatient visits and close or prolonged contact with inpatient care.
Visitors also need to be reminded to adhere to our expectations of consistently wearing their masks while in our facilities.
Thank you for your continued vigilance in ensuring we keep our patients, communities and each other safe
