Buena Vista Regional Medical Center in Storm Lake has issued a statement regarding the increase in confirmed positive COVID-19 cases in Buena Vista County.
BVRMC expected an increased number of cases with more testing that has taken place over the past week. BVRMC wants to assure the public that we are able to handle local cases, including COVID and non-COVID. They currently are and have been seeing COVID patients, and BVRMC medical staff works with them on the best course of action for their particular case.
BVRMC asks residents to continue to use caution when they are out and about by social distancing, vigilant hand washing, and wearing masks when distancing is not possible. Due to federal patient confidentiality laws, BVRMC cannot comment on individual cases, but they continue to work both locally and regionally to serve their patients.
Emergency Services Medical Director Dr. Garrett Feddersen says, “I am incredibly proud of our physicians, nurses, techs, CNAs, administration, and our support staff for the fantastic work they are doing. I would like to stress people continue to socially distance, practice good hygiene, and wear masks in public where possible. Please be responsible and protect your family and ours.”
