Have you been in contact with someone who has COVID?

If you are experiencing symptoms, call (812) 222-DOCS. If you are not experiencing symptoms, the CDC’s recommendations can be found here:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html

    DCMH is doing our part to help keep everyone safe. The following restrictions are in place:

    • Visitation is limited to ONE visitor per patient in all departments. Visitor must be symptom-free and 18+ years of age.
    • All visitors will be screened for illness, including, but not limited to, assessment of temperature and signs/symptoms of illness.
    • No visitors with respiratory-like illness or condition (fever or cough) will be allowed.

      Are you experiencing these symptoms?

      • Fever or chills
      • Cough
      • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
      • Fatigue
      • Muscle or body aches
      • Headache
      • New loss of taste or smell
      • Sore throat
      • Congestion or runny nose
      • Nausea or vomiting
      • Diarrhea

      If so, call (812) 222-DOCS (3627) to speak to a triage nurse. If the triage nurse deems necessary, he/she will:

      Schedule a Virtual Care (telehealth) visit with a provider

      • If provider schedules a COVID-19 test, you will park behind the MAP building at the appointed time
      • Call the number on the sign upon arrival and staff will come to your vehicle to test you

        If you arrive at the Well Clinic with respiratory symptoms, you will be asked to return to your vehicle to call (812) 222-DOCS to be added to the schedule. The steps above will then be followed.

         

        Preventative Care

        We ask that regardless of your risk, and for the safety and health of everyone in our community, including the chronically ill and your healthcare team at Decatur County Memorial Hospital, that you practice the following guidelines to prevent the spread of illness:

        • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based sanitizer that contains 60% to 95% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them until they are dry. You should use soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
        • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
        • Avoid sharing household items. Do not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding that are not your own.
        • Clean all “high-touch” surfaces, such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and steering wheels. Use household disinfectants every day.
        • Stay home if you are experiencing signs and symptoms of any illness. This is called social distancing. It is one of the best strategies for limiting the spread of illness.
        • Monitor your own health. Be diligent in listening to changes in your body that might represent illness, and take care to limit the spread of your illness to others.
