Visitation Policy Guidelines Updated
As we balance the need of patients and their families with the safety concerns for everyone who enters our facility, we will continue to adjust our policies as the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 change. Below please see our Visitation Guidelines that are effective on June 28, 2021
. All visitors are required to go through a screening process that includes a temperature check. Please do not visit if you are feeling sick.
Two Visitors at a time Allowed for Inpatients
Patients are allowed visitors between the hours of 10 am – 6 pm. We are restricting visitation to no more than two visitors at the same time. Visitors may come and go, as well as rotate multiple visitors to see the patients during the visitor hours.
Patients at end-of life have the same restrictions as listed above but have extended visiting hours.
Everyone entering our facility must wear a mask provided by this facility for the duration of their time in the hospital. If a patient is accepting a visitor, the patient must also wear a mask for the duration of the visit.
While visitation is only permitted at a specific time and in limited numbers, there are exceptions below. There are no age restrictions for visitors.
Acute Care Unit
Two visitors are allowed between 10 am and 6 pm. Visitors must stay in the patient’s room with a mask on at all times. Visitors are allowed to visit more than once a day and patients are allowed multiple visitors, but no more than two at the same time.
Please note: Any patients suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 cannot have in-person visitors. Alternative options for communications for all inpatients are available in order to keep families connected (i.e. Zoom).
One visitor may accompany the patient for the procedure and stay in the patient’s pre-op room until discharge. If the visitor/companion is unable to stay the entire time, they may leave, and we will bring the patient to the exit once recovery is complete for the driver to take them home.
Obstetric patients may have two people accompany them for the birthing experience and are allowed up to two visitors during the hours of 10 am – 6 pm (this is not in addition to the two people who were part of the birthing experience). We are restricting visitation to no more than two visitors at the same time but do allow visitors to come and go, as well as rotate multiple visitors to see the patients. Please speak with the birthing staff for further clarification on how this is implemented.
One visitor is allowed to accompany patients in the emergency department. However, any patients suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 cannot have in-person visitors.
Outpatient Medical Practices/Offices/Walk-in Care
One visitor may accompany the patient at our outpatient practices.
No visitors are allowed, except for these situations:
- One parent or guardian is allowed for a minor patient.
- One person is allowed for a patient who needs help with mobility or communication with the care team.
Thank You! We understand that family support is an important part of a patient’s well-being. We are doing all we can to best protect those in our care as well as all in our community. Thank you for understanding.
