BHG Coronavirus Update
Last updated: April 13, 2020
At BHG, our patients’ health has always been our top priority.
We are continuing to put the safety of our patients and staff first and can assure you that we are proactively complying with every CDC-issued recommendation, from disinfection methods to procedures that dramatically limit the number of individuals going into our centers.
The measures we have put in place are as follows:
- All counseling is now done via telecounseling (state permitting).
- Parameters for take-home privileges are being temporarily expanded. For some patients, this could mean additional take-home medications for those that they are currently receiving. The specific amount of medication we can send home with patients varies under state laws and regulations, and is dependent on each patient’s individual treatment plan and stage of recovery.
- Any patients experiencing symptoms, or who have tested positive for COVID-19, are asked to phone the treatment center before arrival, and then stay in their vehicle to receive their medications. Staff are stationed at the door of each center to help screen all individuals entering the facility.
- We’re requiring all staff to practice social distancing and wear personal protective equipment like masks and gloves and we’re thoroughly disinfecting our centers throughout the day.
