SFMH is prepared for COVID-19
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Francis Memorial Hospital (SFMH) has been extremely busy preparing for a potential surge in patients who are sick with fever and respiratory complaints.
“While much of what we hear is about how the virus spreads in larger cities, we are unlikely to escape its effects locally. We need to be fully prepared, and SFMH has pulled together to do just that. It’s imperative to keep our staff and physicians safe while continuing to provide top-notch emergency and inpatient care. It’s amazing what we’ve been able to accomplish in such a short time. It’s incredibly important work.” said Dr. Jason Malinowski, SFMH Chief of Staff.
Preparation measures include the cancellation or postponement of outpatient services. Also, every person who comes to SFMH, whether staff or those in search of medical care, is being screened at the front door. Anyone who is deemed at higher risk due to symptoms is being assessed in a separate area. Anyone who is coming to the hospital for prescription renewals is asked to speak directly with their pharmacy or their primary care provider—or, if they don’t have one, to ask their pharmacy to fax a prescription request to the Madawaska Valley Family Health Team, which will then be in contact with the patient.
It’s important to note that anyone who needs emergency attention at SFMH will be seen and not turned away.
