Current COVID-19 Safety Precautions
Hospice Savannah is committed to maintaining our exemplary level of care for patients and families during the Coronavirus pandemic. We are attentively and constantly monitoring CDC guidelines to ensure team members utilize correct precautions in order to continue to provide safe and outstanding care.
.
Hospice Savannah, Inc. and the Steward Center for Palliative Care remain open and dedicated to serving you. In homes, nursing homes, or assisted living facilities. Our team members wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) when caring for patients, and ask that contact with family members be extremely limited.
.
Hospice Inpatient Unit: One entrance remains open for team members and one entrance remains open for visitors. Both team members and visitors are checked for fever and asked screening questions before being admitted. Visitors who are sick and/or do not pass the CDC screening at the door will not be permitted to enter the building under any circumstances. We currently permit only two visitors in each room at a time between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. Visitors must be screened and must wear a mask.  (Under extenuating circumstances, such as imminent end of life, or the need for extra support, temporary visitation may be granted at the discretion of the Hospice Savannah leadership team).. We have temporarily closed public areas such as our meditation room and living room, and extra disinfecting and cleaning protocols are in place. Click here to watch a video of these measures.

We believe this protection is essential for our patients, team members, and the communities we serve, and encourage visitors to connect to loved ones through virtual means such as Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, or our GoToMeeting app.
