COVID-19 CARE GUIDELINES
Good Samaritan Hospital staff strives to manage COVID-19 cases as ethically and compassionately as possible.
Good Samaritan Hospital's mission is to provide safe and effective medical and psychiatric care for all members of our community. GSH's Board, administration, and physicians have carefully planned crisis care guidelines, informed by ethical principles that also align with the California Department of Public Health Crisis Care Guidelines. The crisis guidelines outline fair and objective criteria to help guide clinical decision-making in a way that will help meet our patients' needs, while saving as many lives as possible during a public health emergency.
To ensure equity and justice, a triage team bases decisions on patients' health status and will not see patients' personal identification, such as name, gender, ethnicity, religion or age, in the process of making decisions. GSH as a healthcare leader, requests all community members to adhere to Public Health and CDC guidelines.
