TELE-HEALTH NOW AVAILABLE

To help alleviate the need to leave the house during the state-wide Stay-Home requirement, we are now offering TeleHealth services with our Primary Care Providers at Scheurer Health. Patients can arrange for a virtual appointment with their provider utilizing their own personal smartphone with just some easy and simple steps. 

A TELEHEALTH OVERVIEW

  1. Call your provider's office and ask for a virtual appointment through TeleHealth
  2. Our clinic team will ask whether you would like the secure link sent to your phone or email address. You should receive the link almost immediately.
  3. When your appointment time is approaching, follow the link and check-in. In order for your provider to see you, click the blue "Enable Camera" button and then "allow" to access your camera and microphone. You are now in the virtual waiting room.
  4. When your provider is ready to meet, your screen will automatically update and connect for your appointment.

Please note:
TeleHealth services require certain system updates and requirements. All devices must have a functioning camera/webcam. Some functions or tests may not be capable via TeleHealth and may require an in-person appointment to be scheduled afterward.

VISITOR RESTRICTIONS

OUR MAIN CAMPUS IS CLOSED TO VISITORS

The following exceptions are allowed:

  • Visitors necessary to assist with medical care for a patient
  • Parents, foster parents or guardians of patients who 21-years-old or younger
  • Visitors to a patient who is in serious or critical condition or in hospice care

Those who are support people for surgical procedures, we ask that they remain in their vehicle during patient care.

REMEMBER, TESTING DOES NOT CHANGE THE TREATMENT.

If you are feeling anxious about not receiving a test for COVID-19, remember that testing does not change the treatment. If you are experiencing symptoms, contact your primary care provider and follow the instructions below.

FEELING SYMPTOMS?
Here's What to Do.

Common symptoms include Fever, Dry Cough and Shortness of Breath

CONTACT YOUR PROVIDER

It is important to stay on the same page as your primary care provider, especially in the worldwide situation. They will instruct you on the necessary steps to guide you back to better health.

STAY HOME

Do not go to the store or other similar places

SEPARATE YOURSELF

Keep distance between you and other household members at all times

STAY IN

Home isolation is critical and should continue until all 3 occur:
1) At least 7 days have passed since your first symptoms.
2) Have been fever-free for 3 days without medication.
3) You are symptom-free for 3 days.

 

QUARANTINE vs. ISOLATION

In short, Quarantine is for people who have been exposed, but not ill. Isolation occurs for people who are ill.

QUARANTINE

People who are not yet ill, but have been exposed.
Separation and restriction of movement of people.
A public health strategy to stop the spread of COVID-19.


ISOLATION

Separates people who have COVID-19 from those who are healthy.
Restricts the movement of people to stop the spread of illness.

MASK DONATIONS

We would like to thank everyone who has donated masks to Scheurer Health. This includes offering us your N95 masks or making, sewing and delivering homemade masks. Even though we have sufficient amounts of Proper Protective Equipment (PPE) currently, we welcome any and all mask donations for the future so we can preserve our existing PPE. As you know, this scenario is extremely fluid and can change by the hour.

We are still in need of more homemade masks. If you would like to join our sewing army, please click the button below to see how you can help.

We do realize the sudden shortage of elastic. There are a number of substitutes that work, including: bias tape, shoelaces, cloth ties or even ribbon ties. If you have any donations to drop off, please coordinate your delivery with Materials Management by calling Megan at 989.453.5247. A map of where you can drop them off is below. Look for the blue "#16" on the door.

SYMPTOMS

The distinguishing factors between COVID-19 and other cases can be confusing. There are no specific clinical features that can yet reliably distinguish COVID-19 from other viral respiratory infections. 

A study was conducted with 138 patients with COVID-19 pneumonia in Wuhan, China. The most common clinical features at the onset of illness were:

Fever // 99% of patients
Fatigue // 70% of patients
Dry Cough // 59% of patients
Loss of Appetite // 40% of patients
Muscle Soreness // 35% of patients
Shortness of Breath // 31% of patients
Coughing Phlegm // 27% of patients

Other less common symptoms:
Headache
Sore Throat
Excessive Nasal Drainage

Areas outside of the Wuhan Province have described similar clinical findings, but some have found that milder illness may be more common. In a different area of China, Zhejiang Province, with a study of 62 patients; all but one patient had pneumonia, but only two developed dyspnea (shortness of breath) and only one needed mechanical ventilation. 

TIMING

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), recovery time appears to be around two weeks (14 days) for mild infections and three to six weeks (21-42 days) for severe disease.

Some patients with initially mild symptoms may progress over the course of a week. In the study of 138 Wuhan patients that were hospitalized for pneumonia, dyspnea (shortness of breath) developed most commonly between five and eight days, with hospitalization occurring on the seventh day of symptoms. 

WHAT TO DO?

Know what to do, no matter the scenario.

"I have similar symptoms to COVID-19"

If you feel that you have the symptoms similar to COVID-19, contact your primary care provider. In the event that your symptoms require emergency care, please call our main hospital phone line, 989.453.3223, ahead of your arrival so that the proper precautions can be taken. 

 

"I have similar symptoms and I need 911"

If you are having an emergency medical scenario, this time is no different than any other medical emergency; call 911.

 

"I have emergent COVID-19 symptoms but I do not need an ambulance"

If an ambulance is not needed, but you are still in need of emergent care (ER) due to COVID-19-like symptoms, call our main phone number at Scheurer Health, 989.453.3223, and your call will be directed to our COVID-19 Nursing Team. You will be given instructions of how you can receive the proper medical care, where to enter, how to access the building and other detailed items. It is our ultimate goal to keep you safe, as well as our team and everyone else accessing healthcare at the time.

 

"I don't have any symptoms and I am bored at home"

Unless you absolutely have to, STAY HOME. The best way for COVID-19 to stop spreading is to limit your exposure. Plan ahead and make your trip to the grocery store, pharmacy or wherever as efficient as possible and in one trip. Do not go shopping for unnecessary items or to just pass the time. COVID-19 spreads by droplets from coughing or breathing. Be aware of what you touch, sanitize your hands often and keep six (6) feet away from others (social distancing).
