Our Mission Statement

COMC provides high quality comprehensive healthcare, intensive case management and collaborative outreach to medically underserved population in the greater Southern Nevada region.

Community Outreach Medical Center- Corona Virus (COVID-19) Protocol 

  Effective immediately and until further notice, COMC will provide in-person care Mondays through Fridays, from 8:15am to 1:15pm, by appointment only. As an alternative method to in-person care, telehealth services will be available to patients during normal business hours (Mondays through Fridays from 8:15am-5pm). As a preventative measure, COMC will not except walk-in patients until further notice and only NECESSARY family members/caregivers may accompany patients to appointments. 


         COMC has established a monitored entry point protocol; the main access door located in the front of the clinic will be used to screen individuals prior to entering COMC. ALL patrons, including staff, patients and delivery persons, will be assessed for Coronavirus symptoms prior to entering the clinic, each time he/she/they enter the clinic. Symptomatic patients will not be granted access to the clinic and will be further assessed and provided additional instruction in the COMC parking lot. ALL staff will be screened prior to beginning shift and entering the clinic; from 8:00am to 8:15am, the main access door will be locked as temperatures will be assessed, staff don personal protective equipment (PPE) and sanitize hands. Only essential personnel and patients that demonstrate asymptomatic behavior will be given access to the clinic. 


      As a continuous measure, all staff will engage in proper hand hygiene practices, don adequate PPE and use caution when engaging in all person-to-person contact throughout the clinic. The waiting room and frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected every hour on the hour. Front desk staff will ensure patients are made aware of clinic Coronavirus precautions and protocol during patient interactions and appointment reminder calls; reminder calls are to be made at least one day prior to scheduled appointments. COMC management will ensure clinic staff is made aware of all public health risks and major updates regarding COVID-19. 


     The following measures may be adjusted to suit patient and or clinic needs: 


   - If patient is home and believes he/she may be experiencing Coronavirus symptoms, prior to arriving at facility, patient should call healthcare provider to discuss symptoms. If patient is experiencing mild to moderate symptoms, health provider will instruct patient to stay home for an incubation period of no less than 14 days with instruction of minimal person-to-person contact, or until patient experiences severe symptoms (for example, shortness of breath); patients experiencing severe symptoms will be instructed to report to the local Emergency Department. 


  - If patient arrives at healthcare provider appointment and reports or is believed to be symptomatic, clinician will assess symptoms and any potential exposures. If patient is experiencing mild to moderate symptoms patient will be sent home for an incubation period of no less than 14 days with instruction of minimal person-to-person contact. If patient reports to COMC and is experiencing severe symptoms, healthcare provider will either instruct patient to report to local Emergency Department or obtain/collect nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal specimens for COVID-19 diagnostic testing. If COMC staff collects specimen, staff will immediately (within the same business day) send sample to testing site (Quest Diagnostics or Lab Corp). Once patient has been tested, health provider will send patient home for an incubation period of no less than 14 days with instruction of minimal person-to-person contact. Staff will contact the Southern Nevada Health District Epidemiology Program at 702-759-1300 to inform them of positive COVID-19 results. 


  - All exposed staff and staff experiencing mild to moderate symptoms will either be sent home for an incubation period of no less than 14 days with instruction of minimal person-to-person contact. Staff experiencing severe symptoms will be instructed to report to local Emergency Department or submit specimen for COVID-19 diagnostic testing.
