Steps We Are Taking to Ensure Your Safety

If you are hesitant to seek in-person care, please know we are prepared. We have enhanced our processes to protect the safety of our patients, team members, and physicians, and our commitment to high-quality and compassionate care remains. Please know we have taken the following actions:

  • Among many new protocols, we’ve created separate areas to treat non-COVID-19 patients.
  • Creation of separate areas within our hospitals for the treatment of COVID-19 patients and non-COVID-19 patients.
  • Providing specially designated entrances at our hospitals for certain procedures and services.
  • Monitoring the temperature of all patients, visitors, team members and physicians who enter our facilities.
  • Rigorously cleaning and sanitizing all Hackensack Meridian facilities, including the use of ultra violet (UV) light cleaning and fogging. We have engaged a nationally recognized, third-party organization to oversee these significant efforts, including the testing of air, water and surfaces to make sure they’re safe for our patients and team members.
  • Testing all patients staying at our hospitals.
  • Providing masks to our patients, visitors, team members, and physicians and requiring them to wear the masks when at our Hackensack Meridian facilities.
  • Ensuring our team members and physicians have the appropriate personal protective equipment.
  • Practicing social distancing throughout our facilities and wherever possible.
  • Restricting visitation at all of our hospitals and nursing and rehabilitation facilities, consistent with directives from the state of New Jersey.
