Pandemic Policy

BROADVIEW COMPLIANCE POLICY to County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Order of the Health Officer.
Effective December 27, 2023

Compliance measures in place effective Immediately.

  • Masks shall be worn by all people (staff and visitors) “…when in contact with patients or working in patient-care areas.” ( LA County Order attached)
  • Only masks provided by Broadview are acceptable.
  • Non- Christian Science Nursing Staff shall limit access to patient areas to immediate need only.
  • Masking is always optional with all staff at any time.

Unchanged LA Compliance measures that remain in place:

Broadview is cognizant of the continuing mandates by Los Angeles County and implements best practices accordingly. This is an overview of current pandemic (COVID) policies and are subject to change without notice. There are internal systems in place to comply with health and safety protocols as they change.

We request that staff, contractors, and visitors be mindful of his/her health and everyone’s safety. If you are feeling poorly, please do not come to the facility. Per LA County, masking remains strongly recommended throughout.

COVID 19 Testing is required before each admission of any patient and accompanying individuals. Broadview cannot accept any COVID-positive individual; therefore, it is highly recommended that those undertake testing at home before making the trip to Broadview.

STAFF who have tested positive will notify his/her supervisor and safely remove themselves from work as quickly as possible.

Staff will retest after no less than three days. If the test is negative staff should plan to return to work; if positive, they may retest after another three days.
