HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS AT AVH

Hello Alexander Valley Healthcare patients and community members.

Protecting the health and well-being of our staff, patients and community members is AVH’s first priority. As the nation takes appropriate action to limit the potential community spread of COVID-19, we want to ensure our patients and community members AVH is taking all possible action to ensure we can continue to deliver on our commitment to our patients and community, while protecting the health and well-being of our staff, patients and community.

Because we do not have an air tight isolation room (planning one for our new facility), we have adapted patient visit protocols to minimize COVID-19 exposure risks. We have established alternative access to care for our patients, such as, telephone and video visits. This is a very contagious virus, and for that reason we are asking all patients who are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, outlined by CDC, to call our main phone line, 707-894-4229, prior to coming to the health center. Calling first allows nurses and physicians to carefully triage patients. We are isolating all respiratory care patients to limit any possible spread of the infection to other patients and staff.

Like all health care organizations, we are working together with DHS, and various other partners to further educate our community. Our colleagues who are on the front lines providing care to our community deserve our support and appreciation. We are extremely grateful for their professionalism, commitment, and service. Be well, kind to each other, and always looking out for one another.
