you can provide.”

NH+C keeps precautions in place to keep you safe
NH+C provides a safe clinic environment for patients and staff:
All patients are screened before appointments. This happens over the phone (at time
of scheduling) and in person (during check-in). Temperatures are taken at check-in.
All patients are required to wear a mask. Please wear a mask when entering a clinic or
the hospital. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided.
Staff wear PPE and are screened. NH+C staff continues to wear various forms of
personal protective equipment (PPE) for both clinic and non-clinical staff. We are smiling
under our masks. We continue to screen employees and take their temperatures upon
arrival to work.
Access is restricted. NH+C maintains visitor restrictions for now. Clinic appointments are
restricted to the patient ONLY. Pediatric clinic appointments are restricted to only one
parent/caregiver and no siblings.
We practice safe social distancing. In the lobby and waiting rooms of each clinic we
practice safe social distancing. This means check-in lines are 6 feet apart, as well as
chairs in the lobby. We monitor the number of people in waiting rooms, and transition
to patients waiting in their car if necessary. No need to worry about how far 6 feet is –
we’ve marked the floor.
Respiratory Clinic continues. The Respiratory Clinic is a separate space where we see
patients with respiratory symptoms. This isolated location follows all safety measures
and PPE protocols.
Video Visits are available. Call your clinic and we can help you decide if a Video Visit is a
good choice for the care you need now.
Northfield Hospital + Clinics is committed to the safety of patients and staff. Learn more about
