3/17/2020: Holland Hospital Following Appropriate Protocols

Published: 3/17/2020, 1:00 PM

Holland Hospital’s priority is to protect our patients, staff and community by minimizing the spread of COVID-19. We were prepared to care for Ottawa County’s first positive patient and all appropriate protocols were followed including protocols for staff caring for the patient. We are happy to report that the patient was discharged yesterday and will now be followed by the Ottawa County Department of Public Health.

Holland Hospital understands that this news can cause elevated levels of concern for our community, but we ask that the community remain calm. We are prepared and continue to work closely with the county, state and CDC to follow all protocols to mitigate the spread and protect the health of the community and our staff.

We have implemented strict visitor restrictions and screenings at all hospital entrances: ANY individuals (including employees) who come to the hospital or any offsite location will be screened for respiratory illness BEFORE entering the facility. Appropriate precautions will be taken for those needing treatment, and those that do not need treatment will not be permitted entry.

We are doing all we can to maintain essential health services and preserve medical supplies. Starting today, several outpatient services are being consolidated or suspended through April 4. As this is a very fluid situation, we ask that you visit hollandhospital.org/covid19 for the latest information on this.

We remain committed to providing care for the community and our staff and we extend our continued gratitude to our valuable health care workers who continue to report for work each day.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) News & information

Holland Hospital continues to work closely with federal, state and local partners to prepare for potential coronavirus, or COVID-19, cases locally. Holland Hospital’s activated Emergency Preparedness process is in place, and we stand ready to care for potential coronavirus patients while also working to prevent the spread of infection and keep patients, visitors and staff safe.

What is COVID-19

In humans, coronaviruses can cause respiratory infections that range from the common cold to more severe diseases. Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 is different from coronaviruses that cause the common cold. COVID-19 is a new respiratory virus caused by a new (novel) coronavirus not seen before in humans.

How does Holland Hospital prepare?

Holland Hospital already maintains Emergency Preparedness teams, protocols and policies ready to respond to a localized or community-wide infectious disease situation. We stay in contact with federal (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), state and local government agencies to stay firmly up-to-date on the latest information.

What can I do to help prevent the spread of infection?

Stay informed. If you are sick, stay home. Follow the advice of the CDC at coronavirus.gov, including proper and frequent handwashing and travel guidelines
