What Everyone Needs to Know for April 1, 2020
- Starting Thursday, April 2, Children’s is changing its visitation policy. Only one visitor will be allowed at a time to any facility. Exceptions will be made for end-of-life care, neonates and other special circumstance. In addition, no sick caregivers will be allowed on our premises. If a parent is symptomatic, another caregiver should accompany the patient. Please learn more about this updated policy, including any exceptions, on myChildren’s and The Pulse.
- Children’s Physicians is temporarily restructuring the visit structure to its offices, with full implementation by Monday, April 6 and continuing through April 30, or whenever we can safely return to normal practices. As part of this restructuring, we will divide our offices into well-check locations and infectious sick-visit locations, minimizing infectious patients being seen at all clinics.For specific location details and important screening updates, read more on MyChildren’s and The Pulse.
- Cavi-wipes, cavi-spray, bleach wipes and hand sanitizer are no longer available to order via capsure shopping. If you have checked your par and still need these items, please send an email request to ICLOGISTICS@CHILDRENSOMAHA.ORG. With your request, please include your name and number, requesting department and cost center, Oracle number, item description and quantity, delivery location and justification for the order.
- Children’s will soon launch a new podcast to answer community questions about COVID-19. From medical questions to ideas for keeping kids active and entertained at home, our experts will answer questions from our Facebook community on what they want to know about COVID-19. More information about how you can listen and share this podcast will be available next week on myChildren’s.
