Your Safety is Our Focus

Anderson Regional Health System has taken many steps to ensure our staff and patients stay healthy and safe while inside our facilities.

Visitor Guidelines

Our visitor guidelines provide safeguards not only for the visitor, but the patient and our staff members as well. We observe three visitor levels, Low, Medium or High, depending on the level of COVID-19 positive cases in our area. Click here for more details.

Sanitization

Infection prevention has always been a priority at Anderson. We have over 60 people on site each day who are devoted to keeping our facilities safe for our patients, staff and physicians. Our sanitization processes are under the direction of our infection control practitioner who is charged with enforcing CDC guidelines.

Screening

Every person who enters an Anderson facility, whether it is a physician, employee, patient, or visitor, is screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Those who do not pass this screening are not allowed inside the hospital and should at that point seek additional medical evaluation at a clinic of their choice.

All patients who present to the Emergency Room are screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Patients who are admitted to the hospital and have not received a single dose or multi-dose COVID-19 vaccine are tested for COVID-19, even if their medical problems are unrelated to COVID-19. Patients who have signs and symptoms of COVID-19 are placed in a negative pressure room and are kept in isolation until they are no longer infectious. Patients with symptoms of COVID-19 are treated as positive until their test results are returned.

Surgery patients are tested for COVID-19 prior to their procedure if they have not received a single dose or multi-dose COVID-19 vaccine. This is necessary to detect a possible infection in someone who may not have any symptoms of COVID-19 at the time of their surgery.

Masks

Everyone who enters our facility is required to wear a mask at all times.

Standing Ready

Enhanced safety precautions and procedures will be in place as long as needed to protect our patients, staff and visitors. We want you to feel safe here, like you always have. Anderson has remained focused on providing advanced medicine and compassionate care, close to home. We continue to be the region’s leading institution in evidence based medicine and surgical care. We’ve been first to market with so many advancements in health care for this region such as cardiac surgery, cancer treatment, advanced robotic surgery, and now COVID-19 which has strengthened our skills, tested our innovation and enhanced our level of care. Our staff has risen to the challenge that this illness has brought, and we are honored to have cared for the very infirmed. As always, we stand ready for you in your time of need.
