If you think you have COVID-19, what do you do?
Want to learn more about what Indiana hospitals are doing?
The Indiana Hospital Association recently launched whyhospitals.com, a website designed to serve as a central source for information for Hoosiers, particularly the role of hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic. The site includes information from clinicians around the state, highlights the heroic work being done by healthcare professionals to care for patients and provides information on how you can help. Hospitals across the state are providing information for the site, which will be updated frequently.
What are the hospital visitor restrictions?
Many hospitals and skilled nursing facilities have put in place special visitor restrictions to protect patients and the public. Hospitals have rescheduled elective outpatient surgeries and procedures, as well as put in place additional precautionary limits. Please check your local healthcare facility's website or social media for more information. Our Hoosier hospitals are doing everything they can to protect their patients, their workforce and the public while caring for those who are facing this pandemic. Please contact your health care provider for additional information or visit your hospital’s website page.
