Nurses line:

If you are symptomatic, please call the Crisp Regional Hospital COVID-19 Hotline at 229.276.3068 for information. Crisp County Emergency Management and Crisp Regional Hospital are continuing to work together to keep you updated. We urge our citizens to continue to follow the guidelines included below to help decrease the spread of the Coronavirus.

Crisp Regional has not received any patients who have tested positive for the new Coronavirus.  

Crisp Regional is committed to the health and wellness of the community. As such, for the safety of our patients, visitors and employees, effective Thursday, March 12, the hospital will be limiting public entrances.

“Though we have seen no cases of the coronavirus in our facility, we are taking precautionary steps to ensure the safety of our patients, employees and guests,” said Steve Gautney, CEO, at CRH. “As an extra step, all hospital guests will be asked screening questions prior to entry,” said Gautney. 

For your health and safety, the CDC recommends screening for all visitors.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

 – Main Entrance at CRH is closed until further notice.

 – Patient Guidelines and Entrances:

  • Emergency Department 24/7
  • Outpatient Entrance 6AM-8PM

 – Patient Screenings at Outpatient, Emergency Department, and Medical Office    Building Entrances. Screenings include temperature check, cough, shortness of breath, or fever.

After Screenings, patients will be assigned a designated waiting area depending on if they are symptomatic or non-symptomatic.

-Visitor Guidelines and Entrances:

  • Emergency Department 24/7
  • Outpatient Entrance 6AM-8PM
  • 1 visitor per a patient. (Not to be confused with 1 visitor at a time)

All visitors will be screened at the Outpatient, Emergency Department, and Medical Office Entrances. Screenings include temperature check, cough, shortness of breath, or fever.

After screenings visitors will be allowed if they are non-symptomatic.

Be sure to call before going to a Doctors office, Emergency Room or Urgent Care Center and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms. 

Cafeteria will be restricted to employees and screened visitors only!

Finally, we all should be vigilant about the spread of germs – especially during cold and flu season. The best ways to protect yourself and those around you are to:

  • Practice Respiratory Etiquette: Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw it in the trash can. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your bent elbow.
  • Practice Hand Hygiene: Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60% to 95% alcohol.
  • Take Environmental Health Action: Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects like cellphones, keyboards and door knobs.
  • If you have not received a flu shot, while it won’t protect from COVID-19, it is your best protection for the flu. Thank you for choosing Crisp Regional as your healthcare provider. This situation is changing on an ongoing basis; we will continue to update you as new and pertinent information is available. We are doing all we can to keep you and everyone in our communities safe and healthy.
