Required Face Coverings:

Hospitals in Northeast Central Ohio (NECO Region) have carefully evaluated revised guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of Ohio, and other sources such as, Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) and have determined hospital staff and visitors will continue to wear masks in the healthcare setting, regardless of vaccination status.

It is well recognized that in the healthcare setting, extra precautions are necessary to protect our vulnerable patient populations. This means that staff, patients, and visitors should continue to wear masks as recommended, in all healthcare facilities. NECO hospitals rely on the partnership of our visitors to help ensure the safety of our patients, this includes wearing a mask, not visiting if you are sick or have a temperature, hand-washing and following hospital visitation guidelines. Mask wearing and patient visitor guidelines will continue to be monitored and enforced at area hospitals.

New information presented by credible sources, such as the CDC, will continue to be evaluated and changes to these polices will be made, when appropriate. Our greatest concern is for the health and safety of our patients.

Effective June 12, Salem Regional Medical Center has announced that its Flu and Coronavirus Clinic has closed due to reduced levels of patients seeking treatment for COVID-like symptoms.

With the pandemic likely to continue for some time, SRMC advises that people who may be experiencing flu or respiratory symptoms, including fever, cough, or shortness of breath; can still seek care at the SRMC Emergency Department, which is open and available 24/7. Outpatient COVID-19 testing is also provided at SRMC for those who have a physician’s order.

Patients are also encouraged to check with their primary care physicians if they need medical assistance or to take advantage of virtual visits, which have become more widely available since the pandemic began.

SRMC's Clinic is for any area patients over the age of 15, who are experiencing mild to moderate flu or respiratory symptoms. These symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Clinic Hours:

  • Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Effective 6/1/2020
  • No appointment is necessary (last patient is seen at approximately 3:30-3:45 p.m.)
  • The Clinic will see as many patients as possible during operating hours.

NOTE: COVID-19 testing is NOT available at this site for those who do NOT have symptoms:

  • Patients will be evaluated by an SRMC provider in a private exam room equipped with portable negative-air purifying machines. Based on the patient’s symptoms and severity, the provider will evaluate the patient to determine if any testing is necessary, including flu or COVID-19 testing.
  • We will not be providing COVID-19 testing at this site for those who do not have symptoms, and we are conserving our supply of test kits for those who are most severely ill and require hospitalization, in accordance with current recommendations. However, healthcare workers and first responders can come to the Clinic for testing if they are experiencing symptoms.

Covid-19 Testing

Salem Regional Medical Center (SRMC) offers COVID-19 tests at the hospital to those with suspected symptoms of the COVID-19 virus or who have been potentially exposed to someone known to have the virus. Testing is also available for patients evaluated at SRMC Immediate Care at Firestone Farms in Columbiana.

How To Get Tested AT SRMC's MAIN CAMPUS

  • Physician Order: Contact your healthcare provider to obtain an order for the COVID-19 test.
  • Where to Go: Covid-19 testing is performed in SRMC’s Outpatient Lab and available Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
  • Cost: Patients over the age of two can be tested regardless of their ability to pay. If you have health insurance, bring your insurance card with you to the test. If you do not have insurance, bring your driver’s license or proof of identity. Financial assistance for the testing may be provided through the CARES Act/Coronavirus Relief Fund.
  • Type of Test Given: SRMC performs a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test, which is a diagnostic test for active coronavirus infections only. Your test will be sent to an external lab, with an average turnaround time of 3-5 days to receive your results.

Services at SRMC Immediate Care

Those with non-emergent flu or respiratory symptoms can visit SRMC Immediate Care to be evaluated by a provider, who will determine if flu and/or COVID-19 testing is needed after the evaluation.

COVID-19 ANTIBODY THERAPY

Salem Regional Medical Center (SRMC) offers a treatment for individuals diagnosed with COVID-19, to help reduce the risk of developing severe disease, hospitalization and death. The treatment is monoclonal antibody therapy, and is administered through an outpatient IV infusion or an injection to those who are at high risk of developing severe symptoms or hospitalization from the virus. A physician’s order is required to receive monoclonal treatment.

What is Antibody Therapy: Monoclonal antibodies are proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight off the virus.

Who is Eligible for Treatment: Monoclonal antibodies may help those who have a positive COVID-19 test, and had symptoms for 10 days or less and are at high risk of getting more serious symptoms.

The antibody treatment can also be used as post-exposure prevention for those who are at high risk for progression to severe disease and who:

- Are not fully vaccinated or unable to mount an adequate immune response to complete COVID-19 vaccination; or,

- Have a high risk of exposure to an individual infected with COVID-19 because of the occurrence of COVID-19 infection in other individuals in the same institutional setting (e.g. nursing homes, corrections facilities). Exposure is defined by the CDC as being within 6 feet of a COVID-19 + patient for 15 minutes or more within 24 hours.

The treatment is not authorized for patients who are already hospitalized with COVID-19 or who require oxygen due to the virus.

How Do I Know If I Am At High Risk? You may be eligible to be treated with monoclonal antibodies at SRMC if you are:

-65 years of age or older

-Obese or overweight (defined as BMI >25 kg/m2 for adults; or if age 12-17, a BMI ≥ 85th percentile for their age and gender based on CDC growth charts)

-Pregnant

-Have kidney disease, heart disease, lung disease, sickle cell disease or diabetes

-Have immunosuppressive disease or undergoing immunosuppressive treatment

-Have a neurodevelopmental disorder (for example, cerebral palsy) or other condition that confers medical complexity, such as genetic or metabolic syndromes and severe congenital anomalies

-Have a medical-related technological dependence (for example, tracheostomy, gastrostomy, or positive pressure ventilation (not related to COVID-19)

For More Info: A physician’s order is needed for antibody therapy at Salem Regional Medical Center. People recently diagnosed with COVID-19, who may be eligible for antibody therapy, should talk to their physician as soon as possible. If you do not have a physician, you may contact SRMC Immediate Care at 330-892-5092, to be evaluated by a provider. The provider will determine if COVID-19 testing and/or monoclonal antibody treatment is needed after the evaluation.
