“We are screening visitors, vendors, delivery person and others who want to come up with a series of questions about their health, the history of their journey and any potential exposure they may have, “said Dr. Venditti.” If they screened positive for all that, they are not allowed in the hospital. “

Doctors were asked about cleaning the room and protective equipment together by direct care workers.

“we are confident that the procedures and processes that we use that we always meng use in our facility more than ade Quate to sterilize a room that the patient was in, “said Dr. Venditti.
