GENERAL UPDATES FOR THE PUBLIC:
MHP employees: We have had a total of 5 MHP employees that have tested positive since
the virus was first identified. Out of 1200+ employees, that is really
an amazing job by our staff to lead by example, wearing PPE, and practicing
prudent hand hygiene and social distancing.
Surgery: We have elective surgery cases scheduled for next week. We have taken
several precautions to ensure a safe environment for the patients and
our staff. This includes testing the patient for COVID prior to surgery,
separate entrance and exits, and multiple other precautionary steps. Moreover,
all positive COVID inpatients have been isolated on the 3rd floor inpatient unit as far away from the 1st floor surgery department as possible.
Physician Practices: MHP Physician offices will begin reopening starting Monday. Please contact
your physician office to schedule an appointment. If you have non-emergent
respiratory signs or symptoms, including a fever, please visit Priority
Care at 30 W. Rampart or call (317) 398-7644.
Washington St Clinic Closing: Reminder, this location is temporarily closing until further notice
after Friday, May 1st.
- We need your empty hand sanitizer bottles. We are making our own hand sanitizer
and need your empty containers in order to reuse.
Do you have items that you would like to donate? (hand sanitizer, masks,
respirators, gloves, N95, bouffant caps, or gowns). If so, please contact
Angela Gill (email@example.com)
Food Donations: Several community supporters have called to offer to donate food for
our staff and physicians. Some are also doing it as a way to support those
restaurants who are struggling to stay afloat while they are only open
for carryout. We are extremely grateful for all the community support
and selfless gestures. If you would like to find out more information,
please contact Angela Gill (firstname.lastname@example.org).
