Regional Health Services of Howard County, just like the rest of the state, is slowly figuring out a COVID-19 system that works. To keep both their staff and patients as safe as possible. Robin Schluter and Diane Trende of Regional Health Services of Howard County say for those looking to come to the hospital – calling ahead is always the best bet.
In terms of visitors from the outside world, the hospital has struck a necessary happy medium. Visitors are allowed in end-of-life circumstances and a spouse is welcomed to be present for their child’s birth.
People assume all healthcare employees are being worked to the literal bone – Trende and Schluter say this isn’t true for their hospital and many others in the state – since Iowa is not currently a trouble location.
