University Hospitals Is Prepared to Handle Coronavirus

University Hospitals is taking steps to respond if needed:

UH’s emergency response plan has been updated for the coronavirus outbreak and to meet any rapid increase in health care needs. We also are in touch with the local health department and the Ohio Department of Health to monitor the situation and respond to new events or recommendations by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We screen all patients who come to our facilities, such as emergency departments, urgent care centers, outpatient clinics and others, by asking appropriate questions about travel to areas of concern as defined by the CDC, contact with persons known to have contracted coronavirus, and about fever and symptoms of respiratory illnesses. The infection control team is available 24/7 to assist at all of our sites.

All UH facilities have access to rooms that meet the standard of isolation for patients with coronavirus as recommended by the CDC, and we can rapidly recruit more rooms throughout our facilities.

All UH employees must undergo mandatory screening for symptoms of COVID-19 as they arrive at work. Before entering the facility, each employee will have their temperature taken and the presence of flu-like symptoms. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher or exhibiting flu-like symptoms will not be permitted to enter our facilities. We also are advising employees to follow Gov. Mike DeWine's directive to take their temperature before coming to work.
