Your health and safety needs are very important to us at PinnacleHealth. These are a few of the things we do to prevent complications in your care:
  • Wash hands frequently (don’t be afraid to ask your doctors and nurses to wash their hands prior to treating you)
  • Follow procedure-specific antibiotic protocols
  • Scrub and/or clip surgical sites
  • Monitor and control blood sugar
  • Prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) through sequential compression device (SCD) stockings and anti-clotting medications
  • Utilize universal precautions (e.g., wear gloves to prevent spread of bacteria and blood-born pathogens) 
We ask that you and your family and friends actively help us to make your hospital visit free of complications. Don’t be afraid to speak up, remind those who care for you to wash their hands, ask your friends and loved ones not to visit if they are sick, and ask questions about anything you see or hear that you don’t understand.
