Safety First

Your safety and wellbeing, and that of our staff, has always been our first concern — and that commitment has not changed. We have enhanced safety measures in place throughout our hospital and outpatient locations. If you need to see a doctor, have surgery, or receive other treatment, we’ll make sure you can visit us safely.

Frequently Asked Questions About Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During your first visit, a physician will evaluate you to determine if additional diagnostic testing is needed, including CT scans and laboratory work.

Our team of specialists will also evaluate your health history to help identify non-respiratory problems, including neurocognitive changes, behavioral health needs, cardiovascular issues and sleep problems. This will allow us to expedite the involvement of other subspecialty treatment teams. All of our testing, treatment plans and follow-up care is tailored to your individual needs, and we will continuously monitor your progress until your symptoms resolve.

Delaying needed medical care is never a good idea. A minor issue can sometimes turn into a major problem without timely treatment.

We have enhanced safety measures in place throughout our hospital and outpatient locations. If you need to see a doctor, have surgery, or receive other treatment, we’ll make sure you can visit us safely.

If you feel more comfortable staying home, many of our doctors are available for consults through our telemedicine program. Virtual visits at Maimonides allow you to discuss symptoms, review medications and develop a care plan — all without leaving home.

We’ve partnered with Amwell, a leading provider of telemedicine technology, for our virtual visits. When you schedule an appointment, you’ll receive instructions for downloading the Amwell app on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer. You’ll use the app to connect by video call with your doctor.

Find out more about our telemedicine options or schedule a virtual visit.

Our Pediatric Post-COVID Recovery Program consists of a pediatric multidisciplinary team, led by our pediatric infectious disease specialists, with care coordinated with pediatric specialists including pulmonology, cardiology, neurology, nephrology, hematology, endocrinology, rheumatology and others as needed. 

If you are feeling ill, you should first call your primary care doctor or a virtual urgent care. Your doctor can help you determine if you need emergency care or if you can safely monitor your symptoms at home. 

If you or a loved one experiences a medical emergency, know that our Emergency Department is open and ready to care for you. To ensure a safe visit, we are taking extra precautions, including:

COVID-19 screening: We assess all arriving patients (with or without COVID-19 symptoms) in a medical tent set up outside the ED entrance.

Face masks: We require everyone to wear a face mask while they are in the ED.

Separate areas: We’ve set up separate waiting and treatment areas for: 

  • Children
  • Pregnant women
  • Patients with COVID-like symptoms
  • All other adult patients

Limiting companions: We allow one adult caregiver to accompany a child (or an adult who requires assistance) in the ED. We request that all other patients come into the ED alone.

Our doctors are always prepared to safely perform emergency or medically necessary surgery. If you and your doctor determine that you need surgery, know that we are taking extra precautions to protect you. When you are admitted for a surgical procedure, you can expect:

Reconfigured access: safe pathways from within the hospital and the Emergency Department to surgical and recuperative areas.

Streamlined admission process: and prescreening before entry into surgical areas.

Optimized scheduling: and patient transport to maximize social distancing from surgical prep areas, to surgical suites, to post-anesthesia care units (PACU) and intensive care recovery units.

COVID-19 testing: We will test you for COVID-19, whether you have symptoms or not.

Staff health screening: We test all of our doctors, nurses, and operating room staff for COVID-19 — we also screen them daily.

Rigorous cleaning: We clean and disinfect all areas and surfaces continually.

Limiting visitors: Restrictions on visitors to help ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

In addition, areas of the hospital in which COVID-19 patients were previously treated have been temporarily closed, comprehensively disinfected using multiple technologies, and significant refurbishing with new materials and cleaning practices, including advanced ultraviolet virus-eliminating technologies.

Whether you visit your doctor at our hospital or one of our outpatient locations, your safety is our first priority. If it’s necessary to see your doctor in person, you can expect added precautions, including:

Face masks: All staff and patients are required to wear face masks. If you do not have a mask, we will provide one for you as soon as you arrive. 

Staff health monitoring: Our staff monitors their own health, including temperature checks, every day to ensure that everyone working in our offices is healthy.

Social distancing: We will maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from you, except when we need to perform a procedure or examination.

Timing appointments: We space our appointments so our waiting rooms are never full.  

Limiting visitors: We ask that you arrive alone unless it is essential for someone to accompany you. We are happy to include additional family members in important discussions by phone during your visit.

COVID-19 screening: When you arrive, we will screen you for any COVID-like symptoms. If you have a fever (100° F or above) or other symptoms, we will ask you to return home. We will continue to monitor your condition with virtual care visits.

Continuous cleaning: We clean our offices frequently throughout the day using an EPA-approved disinfectant.
