New England Baptist Hospital resumes elective surgeries, procedures and clinic visits; launches Safe Care initiative

New England Baptist Hospital, part of Beth Israel Lahey Health (BILH), has resumed non-urgent, elective surgeries, procedures and clinic visits following the state’s lifting of restrictions due to COVID-19 this week. New England Baptist Hospital announced the launch of BILH Safe Care, a set of rigorous standards to protect the health and safety of patients, visitors and staff.

Now in place at New England Baptist Hospital, BILH Safe Care combines new processes, standards and technologies to promote patient safety, including:

  • A three-point symptom check to confirm patients are not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 before their in-person visit, as well as daily symptom checks for staff;
  • Universal masking requirements for patients, escorts and staff;
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection of exam rooms, high-touch areas and common spaces; and
  • Redesigned spaces to accommodate touch-free check-in and check-out, physical distancing and safe pedestrian traffic flow.
