Your health is our top priority. That’s why we implemented new procedures like screening stations and visitor restrictions, all to keep you safe. When you’re ready, so are we.
What Is JRMC Doing To Keep You Safe?
Containing the spread of disease is one of the best ways we can keep our community safe. Because of this, we have updated our visitor’s policy. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
To reduce the spread, employees must wear masks at all times in areas where six-feet of social distancing cannot be maintained. This includes hallways, break-rooms, Apple Basket Cafe and shared office spaces. JRMC supports the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. As such, patients, guests and vendors are asked to mask upon entry.
accommodated physical distancing
JRMC teams have moved furniture throughout waiting areas. This will allow for safe physical-distancing practices in the facility.
cleaning, sanitizing, etc.
In addition to JRMC’s standard cleaning schedule, JRMC is also fortunate to employ R.U.D.I. and R.O.S.I.E., the Xenex LightStrike germ-zapping robots. R.U.D.I. and R.O.S.I.E. produce UV-C light for disinfection. JRMC uses this for patient rooms, surgery suites, bathrooms, cancer center, pharmacy and more. In the last month, we have also used R.O.S.I.E. to disinfect departments including the business office/accounting and medical records. Air exchanges in surgical and patient rooms are also completed by JRMC.
JRMC Apple Basket Café
The JRMC Apple Basket Café is fully open. Hand sanitation is required. Eating and drinking are allowed indoors, provided there is 6 feet of distance from another person or separation by a physical barrier.
reopened elective surgeries
JRMC postponed elective procedures in March 2020. Today, we offer all procedures, provided it is in the best and safest interest of the patient.
