Bank Independent donates masks to LMC

Lawrence Medical received over 100 masks from Bank Independent on Thursday, April 30. LMC CEO Dean Griffin said the donated masks would help the hospital maintain its supply of personal protective equipment for staff members as well as patients entering the hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. On Friday, the hospital resumed all elective and surgical procedures and updated its operations policy following Gov. Kay Ivey’s Safer at Home order, which became effective April 30. Under the hospital’s updated policy, all patients entering the hospital will be screened using a list of questions, to determine if they have any COVID-19 related symptoms and will be screened for temperature. The policy also requires all patients who enter the facility to wear masks, and patients without a mask will be provided one upon entrance. “Our staff were very appreciative and pleased with the donations,” Griffin said. “We are thankful for the support of Bank Independent for our staff serving the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
