Steps Marcus Daly Hospital has taken to prepare for COVID-19

Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital (MDMH) has been closely monitoring the evolving situation of COVID-19. The Hospital’s Incident Management Team began meeting before any known cases in Montana. According to Alida Merritt, RN, MSN, Infection Control Director for MDMH, “In response to COVID-19 surge in the State of Washington, and before the first presumptive positive case in Montana, Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital held a tabletop meeting to discuss Ravalli County’s preparedness for an infectious disease outbreak. The hospital, Ravalli County Public Health, and County Board of Health, as well as other MDMH leaders, attended this session. This was the beginning of a collaborative effort to address COVID-19 in the state.”

John Bishop, CEO of Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital, continued, “That tabletop exercise marked the start of what would become a series of decisions and steps to prepare our community and hospital for the coming months. Our decisions are made based on careful assessments of CDC guidelines, community health needs and usage patterns, and data around the pandemic. These steps are a part of an ongoing effort to ensure our team remains whole while providing the appropriate care, at the right time, in the right place.”
