The Loretto Hospital is proud to support the American Medical Association, The American Hosptial Associatoin and The American Nurses Association in their new Public Service Announcement and campaign to help strop the spread of COVID-19. "It's really simple and we've been talking about this for a long time . Wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands! It's really a no brainer and it is our responsibility to our community to do so to stop the spread" said George N. Miller, Jr., MSHA, FACHE, President and CEO of The Loretto Hospital.
At The Loretto Hospital we have been stressing these actions and requiring all hospital Team Members, Visitors and Patients to wear a mask since early on in March when the pandemic first began to hit our community.
“COVID-19 respects no geographic, demographic or ideological boundaries, and unfortunately it shows no signs of going away any time soon,” said AMA President Susan R. Bailey, M.D. “But there are simple steps we can all take to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities. The AMA is proud to stand with nurses and health system leaders to urge everyone to #WearAMask and #MaskUp. Make masks part of your daily wardrobe and regular routine. By wearing a cloth mask, practicing physical distancing, and regularly washing our hands, we can all prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
We at The Loretto Hospital are pleased that there is a national level campaign urging America to follow these simple steps!
