What You Need to Know About Coronavirus

COVID-19 Preparedness

We remain your partner in care.

Our team members are screened daily prior to caring for patients or working in any capacity within the hospital. As we navigate the coronavirus pandemic together, behavioral health plays an essential role. Uncertainty can leave even the most mentally and physically fit among us anxious and depressed. Now is a critical time in which mental health treatment can be most useful. Oceans can help. Call today.

What is Oceans Behavioral Hospital doing?

Oceans Behavioral Hospitals remain committed to meeting the needs of our patients and others seeking treatment. As one of the largest providers of behavioral health services for older adults and seniors, our highly trained clinical teams have decades of combined experience treating and supporting some of the most at-risk individuals.

Oceans demonstrates industry-leading performance on national quality and safety measures as determined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and The Joint Commission, and is a market-leader in quality outcomes with a patient perception of care rating in the 95th percentile.

As the coronavirus outbreak began to grow, Oceans took action to ensure patients and staff were safe. 

  • We created an internal task force to direct and coordinate infection prevention activities and to prepare for any needed emergency response.
  • We are in regular contact with local, state and national agencies; and receiving ongoing guidance and policy updates.
  • We have implemented the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for screening, testing and infection control.
  • We have restricted in-person visitation.
  • We have increased the frequency in which high-touch surfaces are disinfected.
  • We are asking staff to remain at home if they are exhibiting symptoms of a respiratory illness.
  • We are providing patients, employees and family or loved ones with educational materials emphasizing prevention methods like handwashing and cough/sneeze etiquette.

We value the trust placed in us as a health care provider and will continue to take every possible step to ensure the health and safety of those in our care.

Common Prevention Methods

While coronavirus is serious, most patients experience only mild illness. The best way to prevent illness is to follow CDC individual prevention guidelines:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it away immediately.
  • Clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces frequently using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; or if your hands are visibly dirty. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
