A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT PANIC. STAY ALERT TO BROADCASTS. FOLLOW GUIDELINES FROM GOVERNMENT HEALTH DI

1) THE CORONAVIRUS IS NOW A MAJOR PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY IN LOUISIANA. 

2) Projections are that the virus will not peak in Louisiana until April 10 AND WILL BE POTENTIALLY MORE DEADLY THAN A MAJOR HURRICANCE.

3) It seems that the coronavirus is a greater danger to the elderly and to people with weakened immune systems. These people should be extra careful in avoiding areas where they may come in contact with large numbers of people or people who are obviously ill.

4) Young people can catch coronavirus, become very ill and die from the infection. So, even though they are not as susceptible, young people should still practice diligent prevention techniques and follow guidelines to prevent spread of the virus.  

5) Everyone should wash their hands often and avoid touching their face after shaking hands, handling public objects such as shopping carts, gas pump handles and other things that many other people might have touched.

6) Avoid people who are obviously ill, especially those with nasal congestion and cough.

7) Stay in touch electronically with friends and family. Be aware of those with special needs and act accordingly.

8) Stay away from crowded areas and avoid all unnecessary travel.

9) If you notice that you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or other flu-like symptoms, contact a medical clinic or hospital emergency department for advice on what to do.

9) For some people the virus will likely be mild and imitate a cold. Even if you have mild symptoms, assume you are infectious to others and act responsibly to avoid passing your infection on. 

10) Seek competent medical advice if you have questions or concerns.

11) Staying away from others is the best way to prevent spread of the virus. Unnecessary travel should really not happen.

OUR POLICY ON OPIOID PRESCRIPTIONS AND SEDATIVE MEDICATIONS

Because of the opioid crisis, the government closely monitors and records opioid prescriptions.

  • Prescriptions for narcotics and sedating medications, such as benzodiazepines, will be written sparingly.
  • The FDA does not condone use of narcotics and benzodiazepines simultaneously; therefore, do not expect any prescriptions for that combination.
  • Hunter McGuire Medical Center does not deliver any pain management services.
  • Because of the staggering numbers of deaths from opioid overdoses and its clear danger to public health, it is expected that patients understand and cooperate with medical provider decisions regarding pain control in patients.
