The Rothman Orthopaedic Specialty Hospital is taking steps to ensure the health and safety of all patients, their families, and our employees.
We continue to follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations for evaluation of patients and visitors who may be at risk of developing this new virus. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms (sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath) and have traveled internationally or have been on a cruise ship within the past 14 days, please use telemedicine options where available, or contact your primary care provider or your local urgent care prior to coming to our facility.
In compliance with the CDC recommendation of limited social contact, visitors are currently not permitted inside our building for any patients. Visitors can wait nearby and we will communicate updates via phone calls and text messages. Exceptions to this policy will be made in cases of legal guardianship. Everyone entering our building is screened upon arrival.
The information coming out about COVID-19, both nationally and within our community, is changing daily. We are actively monitoring this information through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as the PA Department of Health.
