Diabetes is one of the conditions that undermines a patient’s immune system, increasing vulnerability to COVID-19. This makes many diabetics reluctant to risk exposure to COVID-19 by sitting in the waiting room. If you’re a diabetic, however, part of being safe is knowing if your A1C has gone up or if your blood sugar is out of control. At RMH, we want to keep you safe from COVID-19 and safe from diabetic complications. This is one of the reasons we’ve begun seeing patients remotely, using our new RMH Video Visits service. With RMH Video Visits, you can see your healthcare provider from the comfort and safety of your own home. If it turns out that you need further testing, you can arrange to visit either one of our two lab collection rooms.
Instructions for using RMH Video Visits can be found on our website at https://www.rushmemorial.com/video-visits/. To schedule an RMH Video Visit, just call Healthcare Associates at 1-765-932-7591.
