COVID-19 and Inova Loudoun Hospital Emergency Services

Translate

The thought of visiting an ER during this uncertain time might be a little scary. But, delaying the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of a potential emergency condition can risk worse clinical outcomes.

Rest assured, Inova Loudoun Hospital has implemented additional procedures to protect the safety of our patients, team members and community.

Here are a few of the safety measures and temporary modifications we’ve made in our ERs:

Emergency Room at Inova Loudoun Hospital (Lansdowne):

If you have a respiratory illness or concern, please visit our ER in Lansdowne. This ER will also continue to see non-respiratory illnesses and injuries.

We’ve temporarily reconfigured our adult and pediatric ERs to separate respiratory patients from those with other complaints. Upon arrival, an outside greeter provides patients with a mask and determines the reason for the visit. Depending on the presence of respiratory symptoms, the patient is escorted to a private, closed-door room in either the respiratory or non-respiratory ER. Pediatric patients are separated from adults on both sides, and are cared for by our pediatric team.

All team members wear, at minimum, a mask for every patient interaction. They also participate in twice daily symptom and temperature checks.

Inova Emergency Room – Ashburn and Inova Emergency Room – Cornwall:

Visit one of our 24/7 free-standing ERs in Ashburn or Leesburg (Cornwall) for all non-respiratory illnesses and injuries.

These full service ERs care for patients of all ages in any emergency situation. They feature all private, closed-door patient rooms and are equipped with advanced technology including CT scans, ultrasounds, x-rays and full spectrum laboratory testing. They are also Joint Commission Certified Acute Stroke Ready Hospitals (ASRH).

Like at Lansdowne, patients and visitors are given a mask to avoid the asymptomatic spread of the virus, and screened for respiratory symptoms upon arrival. They are then escorted to a private, closed-door room. All team members wear, at minimum, a mask for every patient interaction and also participate in twice daily symptom and temperature checks.

Patients who do need to be admitted to Inova Loudoun Hospital will be transported directly to their room at Lansdowne or to the pre-operative area if surgical intervention is required.
