Hospital updates safety protocols

According to a Tuesday statement, Moab Regional Hospital is implementing new safety procedures to protect the safety and privacy of patients, employees and visitors.

Beginning May 1, visitors will check in at the main admissions desk. Each visitor will sign a visitor log and receive a visitor sticker. After 6 p.m. in the evenings, visitors will check in at urgent care or the emergency room. A brightly colored sticker will easily identify visitors when they are within the walls of the hospital.
