Medical Director Dr. James Boone, MD, announced Friday, April 24, that La Hacienda Treatment Center will test all incoming patients for COVID-19.
“In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the gradual improvement in test availability, we are now obtaining a screening nasal swab test for COVID-19 on all patients shortly after admission.”
“This is not the screening blood antibody test but the actual test for the virus,” said Dr. Boone.
“We remain maximally committed to both excellence in treatment as well as committed to the safety of our patients and staff.”
Testing for COVID-19 is the latest addition to numerous measures that La Hacienda has taken in response to the pandemic. For a fuller description, read this post.
