Staying Home Doesn’t Mean Staying Away from Your Provider
We understand this is a challenging time, and we want you to know that we are here for you. Seek care when you need it. If you’re having a health emergency, such as a heart attack or stroke, call 911 immediately.
There Are New Ways to Get Care
UR Medicine has redesigned our approach to care by providing more options for access, including telemedicine visits. Contact your provider, and they will determine the type of appointment that’s best for you.
We’ve Redesigned. It's Safe to Come In
We are following strict guidelines and have created tailored safety standards for each of our hospitals, emergency rooms, clinics, labs, imaging and urgent care locations. Below are some of the new protocols you might experience:
- Being asked to wear a mask to your appointment. We will give you a mask when you arrive if you don’t have one.
- Being asked to wait in your car until a staff member comes to bring you into the office. Whenever possible, we escort patients into exam rooms immediately.
- Getting screened for symptoms before checking in for your appointment.
- Staff members wearing masks, shields, and gloves.
- Meticulous infection control practices, including frequent handwashing and disinfection of all surfaces.
- A limited visitation policy. All patients should arrive to their appointments without any visitors. Please contact your care team in advance of your visit if you have any questions.
- Rearranged waiting rooms to help maintain social distancing, and all magazines and materials removed.
