Sanford Sheldon reminding patients to wear a mask to appointments


SHELDON, IA — Sanford Sheldon wants to remind patients that face masks are still required to help keep staff members and other patients safe.

“As our state is reopening, and we are easing visitor restrictions at Sanford Sheldon for hospital inpatients and clinic appointments we are still being very cautious and are requiring face masks to be worn and we are not able to allow visitors into the nursing home,” said Dr. Amy Badberg at Sanford Sheldon. “It is very important our patients feel comfortable and safe, and wearing a mask is one of the precautions that will help with that.”

Effective May 20, Sanford Health announced updated visitor restrictions for hospital and clinic appointments. One adult visitor at a time is allowed per patient per day. All patients and visitors are required to wear a face mask (self-made/purchased cloth or surgical) at all times. Sanford Health Senior Care is not able to allow visitors into the nursing home.

“We do have a supply of face masks available for those who need one, but also need the public’s assistance to ensure we continue to have a supply available,” Dr. Badberg said. “If you have a face mask of your own and are planning to visit the medical center or clinic, please remember to bring it with you.”
