Coronavirus (COVID-19) advisory
A message for our referring providers:
We continue to monitor the novel coronavirus situation and follow guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH) Geisinger Marworth is now equipped to provide COVID-19 testing for all new admissions. This highly sensitive test, which is FDA-approved for use among asymptomatic individuals, helps Geisinger Marworth remain an extremely safe environment for patients and staff.
Part of that preparedness is being here for our partners to provide care for your patients. To reduce the spread of COVID-19 infection among our patients and staff, Geisinger Marworth has made adjustments to our internal procedures and our admissions' process, including:
- Providing surveillance COVID-19 testing for all new admissions.
- Housing new admissions initially in private rooms. When someone receives a negative COVID-19 test, they will join the general treatment community.
- Requiring that everyone wear masks at Geisinger Marworth, which will be provided.
- Modifying our facilities, mealtimes and other group activities to mitigate high-risk interactions. This includes managing group sizes to the smallest size possible and maintaining masking and physical distancing at all times within the facility.
As an integral part of Geisinger, Geisinger Marworth can leverage the resources and expertise of the organization, should your patient have any respiratory illness symptoms or have contact with someone who does.
Geisinger has the equipment needed to protect our health while treating patients who may have COVID-19 — and to prevent further spread of the virus. We have access to the latest and highest quality testing for COVID-19 and we complete these tests in-house, returning results within 24 to 36 hours.
As always, Geisinger is here as a partner to assist you in providing the best care for your patients.
