Patient Safety is our #1 Priority
On behalf of Aurora Behavioral Health, we thank you for entrusting us with the opportunity to be a participant in the treatment and recovery of members in our community. Patient safety, comfort, and quality of care is our primary concern.
In February of this year, The Arizona Department of Health Services confirmed the first case of a new Novel Coronavirus, known as COVID-19, in our state. As a result, we are heeding to the recommendations of the CDC to reduce the likelihood of the spread of the virus in our facilities, fulfilling our mission to provide a safe, comfortable environment for all those seeking our care.
Currently, we have suspended visitation to our hospitals. In order for our patients to still communicate with family members and loved ones, patient visitation hours will occur via phone and have increased in duration. Additionally, all patients and staff members are screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, as well as undergo a temperature check before entering the hospital. Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 degrees will be sent home until they can be medically cleared to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
Finally, our staff take dedicated time each hour of the day at a minimum to sanitize their work stations, patient areas, and to ensure vigilant hand-hygiene practices.
Keep up to date with recent policy and procedural changes for patients and staff members as we follow CDC reccomendations to ensure the safety of all who come through our doors.
Anxiety is something we all experience at different levels and for some, it can become overwhelming very quickly. Caring for your mental health is just as important as caring for your physical health, especially now as prevention efforts surrounding the COVID-19 virus increase across the state.
We've compiled a list of resources for reliable daily information regarding COVID-19 from trusted health organizations. In addition, this page is frequently updated with helpful online and local community resources for families to help better navigate the daily lifestyle changes brought on by COVID-19.
