Safety Plan

Your Safety is Our Top Priority

Nothing is more important to our team than the health and safety of you and your family. That’s why we’re continuing to implement our safety plan and take extensive measures to ensure our facilities are always an extraordinarily safe place to receive care.  

Here’s an update about what we’re doing to keep you safe:

Masks

In accordance with CDC guidelines, all patients and visitors age 2 and older, including fully vaccinated people, must wear a mask in any Hendricks Regional Health facility. Please wear a mask to your destination — if you do not have a mask, we’re happy to provide you with one you can wear and take home.

Patient Screenings and Safety Precautions

For the safety of everyone in our facilities, Hendricks Regional Health is requesting that visitors not needing medical care, do not enter our facilities if you have any of the following:

  • Symptoms of COVID-19
  • A positive COVID test in the last 10 days
  • Unmasked exposure to a COVID positive person in the last 5 days
We are providing alcohol-based hand sanitizer at all points of care.

Social Distancing

Practicing social distancing is one of the best ways to help ensure the health and safety of everyone at our hospital. That’s why we’ll take you directly to the exam room whenever possible at your next appointment to avoid waiting areas. We're also spacing appointments appropriately to make sure you're able to see your provider upon arrival. If you do need to sit in a waiting area, we have rearranged seating and placed signs blocking off chairs to ensure individuals are sitting six feet apart. Additionally, we are implementing floor decals throughout our facilities encouraging social distancing.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

Our cleaning practices are extraordinarily thorough because we understand how important they are to you and your family’s good health. The Hendricks Support Services team uses a Seven-Step Cleaning Procedure to clean and disinfect waiting rooms, exam rooms, public spaces, restrooms and areas throughout our facilities every day. To further enhance our Seven-Step Cleaning Procedure, we use Clorox® electrostatic disinfectant sprayers in our offices and facilities.

In addition, continuous ATP swab testing is used throughout our facilities to monitor the effectiveness of our cleaning. ATP stands for Adenosine Triphosphate, a molecule found in all living cells. Levels of ATP on a surface are an indicator of whether the environment has been properly cleaned or if further disinfection is needed. UV light technology is used in operating rooms and other areas for added level of disinfection assurance. Finally, Environment of Care rounds are conducted regularly by Hendricks Risk Manager, Infection Preventionist and Support Services team leaders to inspect hospital settings for cleanliness. Rounding also provides a way to identify opportunities for improvement in our cleaning processes. We take this commitment to cleanliness very seriously and disinfect areas multiple times per day, so chances are good you’ll see us cleaning and sanitizing on your next visit.
