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, effective Friday, March 13, 2020, we will implement visitor restrictions in all areas of our hospital. Visitors will not be permitted for any inpatients. For outpatients, a single (1) visitor will be permitted. That visitor will be restricted to the lobby, with no visitors allowed past the registration area. All visitors will be 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.
