COVID-19 UPDATES: Read the Latest Coronavirus News and Information

COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 TASK FORCE

Our organization has had a dedicated task force in place since February which has met regularly to formulate a plan to deal with COVID-19.

Our focus continues to be patient safety, employee safety with the use of personal protective equipment, and resource allocation.

COMMAND CENTER

Sierra View activated its Incident Command Center on March 11th at 7 p.m. and it is in constant operation and continuously staffed by Senior Administration, Clinical Expert Leadership Medical Staff, including Chief of Medical Staff and Support Staff to ensure that our organization can immediately respond to any situations which may arise.

COLLABORATION WITH TULARE COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH BRANCH OFFICIALS

We are in frequent communication with the State CDPH Command Center, with the Tulare County Public Health Branch, local hospitals, the regional CDPH Office, and other local healthcare providers and organizations to coordinate our responses to the evolving community needs.

INCREASED SECURITY MEASURES AND EFFORTS

PRE-SCREENING FOR ALL VISITORS

We are performing screenings on all visitors, patients, employees and vendors who have entered our sites. All entrants must first receive clearance to enter any area of the hospital, the MOB, Wound Healing, or Urology Clinic.

No visitors are allowed in the Distinct Part Skilled Nursing Facility (DPNSF), except under unique identified situations, such as end-of-life situations.

CANCELED EVENTS AND CANCELED VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES

We have canceled all events located at our hospital to help prevent and reduce our patients’ and employees’ exposure to the COVID-19 virus.

We have collaborated with the Volunteer League and asked volunteers to cancel their activities on-site, including closing the gift shop.

ON-GOING COMMUNICATION WITH THE COMMUNITY

Senior Leadership is in communication with the public with the help of our social media accounts as well as through constant communication with the media.

Please make use of our external communication tools and share them with friends and family who may wish to stay informed.
