Hurricane Dorian Warning and Instructions for Patients

An unexpected and unwanted guest could arrive this week, hurricane Dorian.

Hopefully, Hurricane Dorian does not make landfall. However, here are some recommendations for our pregnant patients, if a hurricane or tropical storm warning becomes in effect in our area:

  • If you are more than 2 weeks away from your due date (38 weeks or less), follow evacuation instructions and go to a safe shelter.
  • If you have had a high-risk pregnancy with active preterm labor, placenta previa, or some other unstable condition, please call for instructions.
  • If you are less than two weeks away from your due date (38weeks or more) and have had cervical dilation and contractions, call for instructions; otherwise go to a safe shelter.
  • Please do not call the office or hospital unless it is necessary, as this will overload our ability to handle those patients who do need care.
  • If you are having an emergency and cannot reach us, go to the hospital.
  • Take an adequate supply of medications with you if you evacuate the area.
  • If you are instructed to go to the hospital, there will not be space for your family members other than your spouse. All other members should report to a safe shelter.

 

Sincerely,

The staff of Women’s Health Partners

Your Safety and Well-being is our Priority

On behalf of all of us at Women’s Health Partners, in these difficult times, we want to thank you for your support and confidence in our practice.

We want you to personally know that our patients’ health and well-being has and always will be our number one priority. This reminder bears repeating in the face of any challenges and especially now, given concerns posed by the corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being and that of our staff. To that end, we want to share some of the steps we are taking:

Furthermore, our staff will be asking several screening questions regarding your health. We ask that you do not enter our office if you, or someone in your family, or someone you recently were in contact with, has exhibited flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, severe muscle aches, shaking chills, or recent loss of taste or smell, or recently diagnosed with COVID19.

In order to help us participate with our social distancing effort, we are asking patients to enter the office without any visitors, including children.

You will also have the option of waiting in your car instead of the waiting room after you have checked in. The front desk staff will call your cell phone when we are ready for you to come in for your visit.
