Milford Regional Takes Steps to Protect Patients From COVID-19 Exposure

In order to protect patients and staff from the risk of potential exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Milford Regional Medical Center has instituted precautions to limit traffic and the possible spread of the virus within the hospital.

Until further notice, the following restrictions are now in effect:

VISITOR RESTRICTIONS

Visitors Not Allowed:

  • Those under the age of 15
  • Those who are ill or show signs of respiratory symptoms
  • Those who have had close contact with someone who has tested POSITIVE for Covid-19; those who traveled within the past 14 days to China, Macau, Hong Kong, South Korea, Italy, Iran or Japan; or those who work with or have had contact with employees of Biogen within the past 14 days.

 Visitors Allowed:

  • One visitor per patient is allowed in all areas, including the emergency department and maternity. In maternity, only the birthing partner is allowed.

COMMUNITY AND CHILDBIRTH PROGRAMS

  • All community education programs including wellness programs, lectures, classes and support groups are canceled.
  • All childbirth education programs are canceled.

           

“We at Milford Regional recognize how disruptive these restrictions will be and it is our hope that they will be short lived,” says Edward J. Kelly, president and CEO of Milford Regional Medical Center. “However, any precautions we take to evade the spread of COVID-19 is our responsibility as both healthcare providers and good stewards to the communities we serve. I ask for everyone’s support and patience as we do everything in our power to protect our patients, their families and our staff.” 

Milford Regional is monitoring the progression of Covid-19 and will reassess these restrictions as new information and circumstances present themselves.
