    • UPDATES FROM INCIDENT COMMAND:   
      • Screening Mammograms:  Radiology is in the process of rescheduling nearly 1,000 Screening Mammogram patients following the routine schedule disruption caused by the Covid-19 situation.  Radiology’s suggestion is to NOT reschedule routine screening mammogram studies on those patients 80 years and older, but rather skip this year and resume routine screening in 2021; effectively creating a one-time 24-month gap interval.  In particular, under current Covid conditions, bringing in Nursing Home patients for routine screening mammograms is discouraged.  This approach seems safest for patients, staff, and the facility as a whole.  Clearly, if a patient insists, she will be accommodated. Also, this approach only applies to routine screening mammography and not diagnostic breast imaging.
      • MHP employees testing positive:  MHP has had 10 positive employee Covid cases dating back to when testing first became available in March.  This is an amazingly small number and we are proud of our staff and providers for their diligence in wearing PPE and practicing social distancing. 
     
     
    • SUPPLY UPDATES:
      • We need your empty hand sanitizer bottles.  We are making our own hand sanitizer and need your empty containers in order to reuse.      
      • Do you have items that you would like to donate?  (hand sanitizer, masks, respirators, gloves, N95, bouffant caps, or gowns).  If so, please contact Angela Gill (agill@majorhospital.org)
      • Food Donations:  Several community supporters have called to offer to donate food for our staff and physicians.  Some are also doing it as a way to support those restaurants who are struggling to stay afloat while they are only open for carryout.  We are extremely grateful for all the community support and selfless gestures.  If you would like to find out more information, please contact Angela Gill (agill@majorhospital.org).
