Hospital screening process changes for employees
Beginning on Tuesday, April 20, employees entering any of Asante’s hospitals will be asked to attest to their wellness electronically instead of going through the staffed screening line.
There are three ways to check in:
- Hourly employees will use Kronos, which includes a wellness check. See page 5 of this tutorial.
- Exempt employees can use the Now Mobile app, which was implemented in October.
- Or they can attest on MyTech at their workstation computer. Here is a step-by-step guide.
Update: The QR for the Now app has been disabled. Employees instead will choose the location they’re entering by a drop-down menu. The process applies to both the Now app and MyTech check-in.
Main hospital entrances will still be staffed to screen patients and visitors, but employees should not go through the screening line to enter.
Also, employees must wear some sort of mask when entering the hospital and exchange it for an approved mask once they reach their department or unit. Employees are still advised not to come to work if they are ill. Instead, they should call Asante Employee Health at (541) 789-3674.
