#DontDelayCare: Providence urges patients to get care when they need it
Cindy Tangen Visaya
Home and Community Care,
Is it safe to get care during the COVID-19 pandemic? The real question
is, would it be safe NOT to?
In a recent public service announcement, Providence urges those with symptoms
that require medical attention: #DontDelayCare. Our hospitals, emergency
departments, urgent care clinics, physician offices and virtual care services
are open to safely deliver care.
Watch the PSA to learn how we’re keeping our care facilities open and safe for
our patients. Dr. Kevin Caserta, chief medical officer for Providence
Southwest Washington, speaks on behalf of all of our facilities as he
answers these questions:
- Are hospitals safe?
- When should I go to the emergency department?
- What should I expect when I get to a hospital?
- Can you see me in the emergency department?
Help us spread the word
