Moving Forward Together For Our Community As Littleton Regional Healthcare continues to provide key health services during COVID-19, including all essential surgeries and preventative screening procedures, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our patients and staff. Safe Surgeries during COVID-19 As is true throughout the hospital, several important safety measures have been implemented regarding all surgical services: LRH continues to adhere to its COVID-19 policies regarding front door screening, the wearing of masks and limited visitation. LRH has the capabilities to test surgical patients as needed to ensure the safety of our other patients and staff. All surgery patients are required to wear masks during their time in the hospital. One essential caregiver is permitted to accompany a surgical patient at this time. This designated individual is able to review post-operative care instructions and follow up recommendations with our medical staff. Patient Education Plays a Key Role Patient education and a constant flow of updated information are more important than ever to help our patients determine when it makes sense to schedule surgery, some of which may have been postponed due to COVID-19. Hospital safety policies, the risks and benefits of any particular surgical procedure, and current local statistics regarding COVID-19 are all part of our patient education process. However, each patient, along with their health providers and family members, are encouraged on a personal level to consider when it feels safe to schedule their procedure. Every situation is unique. When You're Ready, We're Here! Now the bottom line is this: you and your provider know what's best for your health situation, and Littleton Regional Healthcare is here to help. When you need us, and when you're ready, we are too. In the meantime, we remain committed to doing everything possible to provide the safe and responsible care this community deserves.
