St. Luke’s Hibbing Family Medical Clinic Takes Steps to Ensure Patients’ Safety
St. Luke’s Hibbing Family Medical Clinic is taking extra steps to ensure patients’ safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To help patients continue getting the care they need, patients can now see their providers through a telehealth video visit. They simply need a device with a camera and an internet connection to connect with their provider. People can use a video visit for minor health concerns, illnesses, chronic care management and preventative care. People can call the clinic to schedule an appointment.
Hibbing Family Medical Clinic is also offering curbside lab draws. This allows people to have important blood draws while they remain in their vehicle at the clinic.
In cases where patients need to come into the clinic for an appointment, there are robust measures in place to protect patients and staff. The clinic is diligently following infection control measures set by the Centers for Disease Control. This includes:
- Screening all patients when they’re entering the clinic
- Practicing good social distancing at registration and waiting areas in the clinic
- Disinfecting patient rooms, door handles, clip boards and pens after every patient
- Appropriately using masks for direct patient care and non-patient care employees
- Relentlessly practicing good hand hygiene
Because of lower demand on weekends, Hibbing Family Medical Clinic Urgent Care is now only open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 6 pm. No appointment is needed.
