Hoag statement on preparedness efforts

“Hoag is prepared to protect our patients, physicians, clinical care providers, and all employees from the spread of infectious disease. We, like many other hospitals, care for patients with infectious diseases frequently and are well prepared to provide the best and appropriate care for these patients while ensuring the safety of our staff, patients, and visitors. We have an Infection Prevention team leading our preparedness efforts, which includes education, training, and drills so that our clinicians have the tools and communication systems to properly screen and isolate patients for infectious conditions.”
