COVID-19 POLICIES

Due to the rapidly evolving nature of state mandates and hospital protocols, these polices are subject to change.

VISITOR RESTRICTIONS

Visitor restrictions are subject to change due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, we are asking you to limit bringing visitors to your appointments unless absolutely necessary. If you do have a visitor with you, they must also go through the pre-screening questions and wear a mask at all times. If you are unable comply with these stipulations, we kindly ask that you re-schedule your appointment.

RESCHEDULE IF YOU TRAVELED

We are asking all patients to call and reschedule their appointments if they have had any domestic or international travel within the last 14 days.

PRESCREENING QUESTIONS

Prescreening questions will be asked at the front door upon arrival for your scheduled visit.

 

Please be advised that we may ask you to reschedule your appointment based on your answers, to minimize the spread of disease to our staff and other patients.

COVID-19 TESTING

If you have a known exposure, have personally tested positive, or have concerning symptoms for COVID-19, please call and let us know rather than coming in for your appointment.

 

We have on-site testing available through Capstone Family Medicine and would be happy to help facilitate testing for any of our patients, when indicated.

PREGNANCY

In regard to pregnancy, all women are allowed one support person in the room with them during labor.

 

As of January 18th, this has been expanded to also allow a Doula to be present as an additional support person.

 

We are also required to test all women for SARS-CoV-2 upon hospital admission, or within 72hours prior for any scheduled inductions or c-sections. This will also be arranged during your prenatal care.

 

Please know that these rules are subject to change due to fluctuating case numbers, so be sure to ask our staff about the most current hospital regulations. 

ELECTIVE SURGERY

As of now, we are able to perform elective surgeries at both the hospital and surgery center. Per current State of Alaska health mandates, pre-admission COVID testing is a requirement which we will help arrange for you.
