A Letter to our patients,
Due to recent mandates, we at Alaska Trauma & Acute Care Surgery understand the difficulties this has brought to not only you - but to our community. Staying home is the safest thing you can do for you and your loved ones, and we encourage this.
As many of you know, we instituted a Food Insecurity Screening program in coordination with the Food Bank last year. Proper nutrition is essential to not only your healing process but to your overall healthand well-being.
During this public health emergency, we are concerned that our patients are finding themselves in that situation and may be in need of food. Please contact our office at
907-375-8785 so we can assist you. We will work with you to find a safe place, maintaining social distancing, where we can deliver food items to you or arrange for pickup.
Remember you can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:
•Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
•Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
•Avoid close contact with people who are unwell
•Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell
•Maintain 6 foot distance for everyone in the public, in public spaces or outdoor spaces
•Touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean
We wish safety and health upon you and your loved ones.
