Coronavirus COVID-19 Update For Our Patients:

**Notice to Patients Who Will Soon Deliver at MERCY FAIRFIELD HOSPITAL**

Pregnant patients coming to Mercy Fairfield Hospital for delivery can enter through the MAIN ENTRANCE after hours.

When you arrive, please call 513-870-7370 to alert the Labor and Delivery floor. Someone from the L & D staff will meet you downstairs, thus allowing you to avoid the Emergency Department during the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay healthy!

As the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to rise, we aim to support actions that slow down the impact of the virus in our community. In order to adapt to the new stay at home orders, we are now offering scheduled TELEHEALTH VISITS during which you will be able to talk directly to one of our doctors from the comfort and safety of your home.

Please understand, this may not be a feasible solution for every patient and every heath concern, and some may require an in-office evaluation. For those with urgent needs and previously scheduled appointments, our offices will remain open.

For those with in-office appointments:

  • If you are sick with a fever, cough, or shortness of breath STAY HOME and call the office for further guidance.
  • All patients will be screened at the door for fever, URI symptoms, and COVID exposure.
  • Unless medically necessary, no guests will be able to accompany you to your appointments.
  • We are making every effort to keep our offices safe. All high traffic areas are being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected multiple times a day.

As stated before, nothing is more important to us than the health of you and your families. Our staff is working day and night to keep up with the evolving situation and provide you with the care that you need. Please help us help you. Regardless of if you have symptoms or not, we urge you to continue social distancing, stay home, and stay safe.

Research Finds No Evidence of Transmission From COVID-19-Infected Pregnant Women To Fetus

The Physician’s Briefing (3/24) reported that “there is currently no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 undergoes intrauterine or transplacental transmission from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)-infected pregnant women to fetuses, according to a study published online March 17 in the Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine.” The study “found that unlike coronavirus infections of pregnant women caused by SARS and MERS, COVID-19 did not lead to maternal deaths” in the women analyzed in the research. Moreover, “there were no confirmed cases of intrauterine transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from mothers with COVID-19 to their fetuses, similar to pregnancies with SARS and MERS,” and “all neonatal specimens tested, including some placentas, were negative for SARS-CoV-2 by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction.”

What does this mean for you?

Pregnant women do not appear to spread COVID 19 to their unborn babies through the placenta and the virus is not found in the amniotic fluid. Additionally, pregnant women do not appear to fare worse than non-pregnant patients when infected with the virus which is different than what is seen with the flu and other coronaviruses.

For more information, the CDC has put together the most up to date information regarding the corona virus.

Thank you and be healthy,
