Our primary goal at Paulding County Hospital is to provide the best quality of care and safety to our patients and staff. In an effort to protect patients, staff, and visitors we have implemented visitor restrictions at the recommendation of the Infection Prevention Team. The visitor restrictions began Jan. 6, 2020 and continue until further notice.
- Anyone coming to the hospital or outpatient clinics to obtain treatment for flu-like symptoms will be required to wear a mask in public areas, such as waiting rooms.
- People experiencing flu-like symptoms or colds should not visit any patient (fever, sore throat, cough, body aches).
- It is recommended that visitors under the age of 18 do not visit patients.
- Visitors are highly encouraged to wash and sanitize hands frequently to prevent getting the flu or potentially spreading any illness.
- You are encouraged to receive the flu vaccine if you have not done so yet this year. The vaccine is still available for anyone 6 months and older.
- In the facility we provide stations at the entrances with hand sanitizer and masks to help keep visitors and patients safe.
