Patient Safety is Our Priority
On behalf of Aurora Behavioral Health, we thank you for entrusting us with providing treatment and recovery services for the community during the current public health crisis. Patient safety and quality of care are our primary concerns.
In February 2020, the Arizona Department of Health Services confirmed the first case of the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19, in our state. In response, we are heeding the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) recommendations to reduce the likelihood of coronavirus infections spreading in our facilities. These actions help us fulfill our mission to provide a safe, comfortable environment for people seeking our care during the coronavirus pandemic.
Currently, we have suspended visitation to our hospitals. To allow our patients to communicate with family members and loved ones, patients will have phone-access during now extended “virtual” patient visitation hours. ‘We regularly screen all patients and staff members for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, and everyone undergoes a temperature check before entering the hospital. To ensure the safety of our patients and staff, if a checked individual has a temperature over 100.4°F, we will send them home until a doctor medically clears them.
Finally, our staff frequently sanitizes their work stations and shared patient areas, and frequent hand-washing is mandatory.
Keep up to date with recent policy and procedural changes for patients and staff members as we follow CDC recommendations. These changes help ensure the safety of all who come through our doors.
Anxiety is something we all experience at different levels. For some people, anxiety 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 are in effect across the state.
We have compiled a list of resources for the latest news on coronavirus news from trusted health organizations. Additionally, we frequently update this page with listings for community COVID-19 resources. These resources help families better navigate the daily lifestyle changes from COVID-19.
