About Coronavirus – COVID 19

Abrazo remains focused on patient safety for our community. We understand that visitors can facilitate a healing environment in appropriate settings. Our guidelines have now been updated to allow visitors in the hospitals. Visitation policy is as follows:

  • Visiting hours are 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
  • To promote a safe environment for our visitors and for those patients with respiratory isolation precautions including COVID, visitation may be limited. 
  • Two (2) visitors per patient room are allowed. Families may wait in waiting or common areas while taking turns to visit a patient. Please ensure appropriate behavior is maintained so other patients, visitors and staff are not disturbed.
  • ER patients may have two (2) visitors at any time.
  • Patients undergoing surgery or procedures may have two (2) visitors accompany them.
  • All visitors, including children, must wear masks while in the hospital and follow proper hand hygiene recommendations. Children must be of an age in which hand hygiene regulations as well as appropriate utilization of a mask (fully covering mouth and nose) can be maintained at all times.

We appreciate your understanding and partnership in maintaining a healing environment for our patients.

We’re here for you, your family and our community.

Abrazo Community Health Network works closely with the Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to respond to any potential novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in our area. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we take every precaution to keep you, your family, our staff and our community safe.

Our COVID SAFETY Standards

COVID SAFETY standards are built upon deep clinical expertise from previous crises and on-going management of COVID-19, as well as continuous incorporation of CDC, CMS and State recommendations. They are a rigorous combination of infection prevention processes, training, testing, personal protective equipment and technology. Our COVID SAFE standards includes five components:

  • Distinct COVID SAFETY and COVID CARE Zones – separate areas with clear signage and protocols
  • Rigorous Physician and Staff Protocols – daily self-screening, universal masking (cloth masks are not allowed in patient care areas) and access to PPE
  • Heightened Sanitization – enhanced cleaning of surfaces and plenty of hand sanitization stations
  • Access to COVID-19 Testing – testing for patients, physicians and staff who require it
  • Precautions for Patients and Visitors – provision of face masks, hand sanitizer and physical distancing

Everyone, regardless of vaccination status (fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated, or unvaccinated for COVID-19), must follow these standards.
