Re: Precautions at MCHC

Mountrail County Health Center is dedicated to providing excellent patient care in a safe environment. With the recent nationwide outbreak of COVID-19, we are implementing several precautions that will protect our residents, patients, and staff.

  • We have implemented an employee screening procedure upon entry to the building.
  • We have discontinued use of the Main Entrance and moved hospital admittance “check in” desks away from the entrance to the nursing home.

For the foreseeable future, patients checking in for:

                Regularly scheduled outpatient appointments should check in at clinic reception

                ER or Walk-in patients should check in at the ER door (south side of building)

                All patients will be screened for symptoms PRIOR to entrance.

  • We have restricted foot traffic through the nursing home to essential personnel only.
  • We are following the CDC and ND State Department of Health’s Recommendations regarding communal dining, minimum spacing rules, and group activities for all nursing home residents.
  • We have increased the number of times that frequently touched surfaces throughout the facility are sanitized.
  • All departments are continuing with regular appointments at this time.

Again – if you feel you need to be seen for COVID-19 at MCHC **YOU MUST CALL THE RURAL HEALTH CLINIC IN ADVANCE** to allow our nurses to triage each case individually.  701-628-2505

Please remember this is a fluid situation.  We will be posting more information as we receive guidance from the CDC and the ND State Department of Health.
