Additional COVID-19 Information:

Members of the community have expressed concerns about the surge in COVID-19 patients over the last few days. Redlands Community Hospital (RCH), like other hospitals in the region and nationally, is experiencing a sharp rise in the number of people coming to our emergency department who are testing positive for COVID-19.

Rest assured that RCH is working with its Inland Counties Emergency Medical Agency (ICEMA) and emergency medical services (EMS) providers to provide care to our community’s COVID patients. We are in contact with other area hospitals in a mutual effort to serve all COVID and non-COVID patients needing care.

RCH will care for all of our patients safely and effectively and COVID-19 protocols are in place throughout RCH to stop the spread of the pandemic. Our physicians and medical staff leadership are constantly monitoring the situation, allowing us to maintain the appropriate level of care for our patients. RCH’s goal is to quickly treat medical conditions safely and allow patients to go home in the safest, shortest possible time.

Remember to pay attention to your health and that of others around you:

  • If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms – fever, cough, shortness of breath, new loss of taste or smell, or other flu-like symptoms, call your doctor. It is important not to wait too long as early testing and treatment may help you avoid a trip to the ER and possible admission to the hospital.
  • Follow the recommendations of the CDC and our local and state health officials. Stay at home as much as possible and only leave your home for essentials needs. Wear your mask and maintain social distancing at the grocery store, pharmacy, and medical appointments. Avoid gatherings with people outside your immediate household.
  • If you have neighbors who are elderly or have a chronic condition, consider offering to pick up their groceries or medications when you are making a trip to the pharmacy or grocery store.

Helpful Information about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new virus strain that is believed to spread in similar ways as the common cold, such as when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. A health care provider can give you instructions for seeking care, which you can do without exposing others.

Medical staff at Redlands Community Hospital are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, and we have strong infection control policies, procedures, and systems in place. As recommended by the CDC, our clinicians are screening all patients for fever, respiratory symptoms, and travel history within a month prior to symptom onset. Anyone meeting the CDC-established criteria would be isolated and further testing and care will be guided by the health department.

How to protect yourself:

You can protect yourself from COVID-19 infection the same ways you protect against the common cold or seasonal flu.

  • Sanitize your hands often for at least 20 seconds each time. Alcohol gel works well in most situations (like after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose), but handwashing with soap and water should be performed after going to the bathroom, before eating, or when your hands are visibly soiled.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. (Putting a tissue on a table contaminates the surface of the table with germs.)
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Do not visit hospital patients if you are ill in order to protect patients, visitors, and staff. Visitation may be limited at the discretion of the medical providers and hospital staff at any time.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Routinely disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, using a cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Avoid non-essential travel.

If you feel sick, here’s what you should do:

  • Use home quarantine or home isolation.
    • Stay home if you believe you have been exposed to the virus, even if you are not showing any symptoms, and contact your health care provider.
    • Whether you have seasonal flu, the common cold, or something else, it’s important you stay away from others when sick.
    • Monitor yourself for fever, coughing, and shortness of breath.

Care During a Public Health Emergency

We appreciate your trust in Redlands Community Hospital in providing your medical care. As you know, we are facing a sustained public health emergency that has reduced available medical and personnel resources available to hospitals and patients. During times such as these, it may be necessary to implement Crisis Standards of care. Redlands Community Hospital has adopted the California Crisis Care Continuum Guidelines.

California is one of a number of states with such guidance. Anchored in best practices from across the country, and guided by ethical principles and a commitment to equity, it provides a framework to help health care facilities and county health departments plan for the potential of a COVID-19 surge that is overwhelming. It aims to ensure that, should conditions push our systems into providing crisis care, we do so in a coordinated and thoughtful manner, using a common framework, procedures, and decision making that best protects the health of all Californians.
