As our communities navigate the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), BryLin Behavioral Health System is dedicated to taking care of all patients, associates and physicians across our system. We have taken every step to protect the staff and recipients during this health crisis consistent with local, state and federal guidelines..
The situation with COVID-19 is changing seemingly hour to hour, and we are making thoughtful and rapid decisions to prepare for all scenarios, with safety as the top priority.
At BryLin Hospital, we’ve implemented numerous preventative measures, as recommended by public health authorities. At this time, we’ve stopped visitation for all patients. Instead we’re using video-visiting via Facetime and Skype for patients to keep in touch with their loved ones. We have several have hand washing stations and accessibility to disinfectants for all employees to continuously wash hands and disinfect equipment. We have also increased the frequency of cleaning high touch areas.
At BryLin Hospital, we have implemented an approved screening process in the Admissions Department, using techniques provided by the CDC, to exclude compromised recipients meeting the CDC criteria. We’re also utilizing screening measures for everyone coming into the buildings, looking for any symptoms consistent with the CDC guidelines.
As of Monday March 23rd, the BryLin Behavioral Health Center (outpatient clinics for mental health and substance use disorders in Williamsville) is offering counseling and medication management appointments via telemedicine. Individual and group sessions are now conducted by phone and both clinics are screening new patients by calling the respective clinic directly. No one will be seen in the clinic. New and existing patients are encouraged to call with any questions.
As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, prioritized the safety of staff and patients. BryLin Behavioral Health System is accepting new patients at all locations by calling (716) 886-8200.
