Safety Precautions

Ensuring the health and safety of our patients, employees, and physicians is the #1 priority at Methodist McKinney Hospital. During these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to providing the same high-quality and compassionate care that you’ve always known at our facilities.

In accordance with CMS, CDC, State, Local, Tribal, and National Specialty Societies (American College of Surgeons, American Society of Anesthesiologists, Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses, American Hospital Association) guidelines and recommendations, we are following recommended best practices to provide you, our employees, and our physicians with a safe environment. Here are some of the procedures we have instituted and changes should expect during your next visit:

Only individuals who are essential to patient care have access to the facility.
We have limited the number of patient visitors allowed. Patients are allowed one person to accompany them on the day of their scheduled procedure or surgery.
Health status screenings—including temperature checks—are required for everyone who enters the facility.
All staff, patients, and visitors are required to wear a mask or other face covering at all times. If you don’t have one, we will provide one upon entry.
We stagger appointments, minimize wait times, lower patient volumes, measure flow management, and space out chairs in all waiting areas to allow for proper social distancing.
We have established additional and special procedures for cleaning and disinfecting the entire facility, placing an emphasis on frequently touched areas—such as doorknobs, telephones, handrails, etc. These changes are an addition to the already rigorous infection control policies, procedures, and practices that were in place prior to the current pandemic.

Our goal at Methodist McKinney Hospital is to protect the health of our patients, staff, and community. We continually monitor the latest information on the COVID-19 virus. We encourage all visitors to follow the latest information from the CDC to prevent the spread of infection. If you have concerns or questions about COVID-19 or exhibit any symptoms, we encourage you to contact your primary care provider.
