Is it safe to have my baby at Floyd due to COVID-19?​

It is safe to have your baby at Floyd Medical Center.​

In the event that a patient with an infectious disease presents at a Floyd Medical Center, we have the facilities and the expertise to care for those patients while protecting the safety of all of our patients, visitors and employees.

Floyd has negative pressure isolation rooms that do not share air with other rooms.

Our staff participates in drills and training routinely to maintain a state of continual readiness, and our caregivers use personal protective equipment when caring for any patient suspected of having an infectious disease.

 

What do I do if I have a scheduled delivery?

If you have a scheduled delivery, go to the Floyd Medical Center main entrance off West Fifth Street.

You will be screened at the entrance by a trained health care professional. If you have symptoms of respiratory illness or have traveled to a high-risk area within the past 14 days, you will be redirected to the Emergency Care Center where you will be given a mask to wear and admitted.

 

What do I do if I go​ into labor?

Mothers in active labor should go to the Emergency Care Center. You can call the ECC in advance to let the staff know that you are coming. Once you arrive at the ECC, you and the person accompanying you will be screened at the door before you are admitted. You will also be given a mask to protect your health and the health of other Floyd patients, visitors and employees.
