Statement Regarding COVID-19

Starr Regional Medical Center is committed to protecting the health and safety of everyone who walks through our doors. We are continuing to work closely with the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) and follow all guidelines set forth by the TDH, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) to ensure the safety of our patients and staff members. We strictly follow all appropriate guidance for the notification of patients and their families in the event of a positive case among our staff members or among our residents and have established regular updates with our residents’ family representatives, in accordance with guidelines recently released by CMS.

In addition to our standard infection prevention protocols, we proactively implemented additional safety precautions beginning in March 2020. We continue to maintain these standard infection prevention protocols and additional safety precautions today, including:

  • A strict visitation protocol;
  • Limited entry points to the facility;
  • Masking for all staff members;
  • Required screenings for fever and other symptoms of respiratory illness for everyone entering the facility.

We began routinely monitoring all residents for symptoms of COVID-19 in March of 2020 and continue to require testing for every new resident prior to admission.

Our residents are like family to us and protecting their safety and wellbeing while maintaining open lines of communication with their loved ones is our top priority. We are proud to serve the Etowah community.
