Birth Center Safety Measures
At St. Rose Dominican, we have always been committed to meeting the health care needs of our community. We are implementing new safety measures for our Maternal Child Services patients and COVID-19 testing.
Our care environment is different than it was before the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are just as dedicated to providing high-quality care that is responsive to the needs of our community and reflective of the dedication of our caregivers. Thank you for your support in creating a safe care environment.
- St. Rose is adhering to the guidance and established criteria of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US Surgeon General, the American Hospital Association, and the leading national associations of nurses, surgeons, and anesthesiologists.
- Screenings are conducted for everyone entering our care sites. Screenings are very brief and involve just a few quick questions and a temperature check.
- Masks are required for everyone, including staff members, patients, and visitors. Cloth masks are acceptable for patients and paper masks will be provided for patients or visitors who don’t have one.
- Support Person - One support person is allowed to stay in the Birth Center with mom the entire time she is a patient. Visitation has been limited throughout the hospital to minimize exposure. We happily welcome (can provide if needed) digital means to involve other family members or friends.
- Mothers and infants are taken care of only by an RN who is not taking care of any potentially infectious patients.
- Social distancing guidelines are in place for patients and visitors.
- Enhanced cleanings and disinfection occur throughout our facilities at the end of every day.
St. Rose Dominican's San Martín and Siena Campuses are the first Baby-Friendly Hospitals in southern Nevada.

As part of this commitment to infant care, we:
