Operational Update for Patients
Baptist Behavioral Health will reopen its offices and start seeing patients again in person on June 1.
We’ve taken protective actions to keep all patients, physicians, team members and visitors safe. As we adjust schedules and office flow to support CDC recommendations, we ask for your patience and understanding as we move through our different phases of reopening.
Here’s what you can expect from Baptist Behavioral Health during this reopening phase:
- All patients, staff and visitors are required to wear a mask (cloth or surgical) in the office.
- We have rearranged our waiting room and workspaces to help with social distancing.
- If someone brings you to your appointment, we ask that they wait in the car until your appointment is over to help us limit the number of people in the office at any one time.
- If a caregiver is needed to attend the visit with you, he or she will need to wear a mask. Please inform staff if this is the case.
- Upon arrival, all patients and caregivers will have their temperature taken and may be asked specific COVID-19 screening questions.
- We will gather information through as many contactless ways as possible. We recommend bringing your own pen for paperwork.
- We will communicate any changes as we move through this process.
- If you aren’t feeling well, please stay at home.
