For the safety of everyone involved, Adirondack Health has implemented some temporary changes in visitor policy and hours for its outpatient pharmacy.
For the safety of everyone involved, Adirondack Health is restricting visitors to Mercy Living Center and Adirondack Medical Center.
The hospital is closed to all visitors, in accordance with guidance issued by the state Department of Health.
Exceptions will be made in rare circumstances: if it's medically necessary (like if the visitor is essential to the care of the patient) or for family members or legal representatives of patients in imminent end-of-life situations. Any visitor meeting these exceptions will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms - cough, fever or shortness of breath - or potential exposure to someone with COVID-19. The length and frequency of visits will be minimized to the greatest extent possible.
Our nursing home in Tupper Lake is closed to all visitors. We are following the state’s directive under Gov. Andrew Cuomo to protect the most at-risk population, the elderly, from the spread of the virus.
If a patient is receiving end-of-life care or under dire circumstances (with the use of protective equipment), special considerations may be made.
All staff are required to wear masks and are monitored for symptoms.
Staff are helping to keep Mercy residents in contact with their families via video calls. Members of the community can send a message to Mercy residents by clicking here.
The state has directed gyms to shut down, so the Adirondack Health Medical Fitness Center is currently closed.
The gift shop at Adirondack Medical Center is closed, and all volunteer services are currently suspended.
Our outpatient pharmacy is currently operating on reduced hours: 9 to 10 a.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
