Northern Light Mercy Hospital updates its visitor policy
Effective Wednesday, August 11, Northern Light Mercy Hospital will limit visitation for adult inpatients to one visitor daily between the hours of 8 am and 8 pm. While those visiting adult inpatients may only make one visit each day, there is no limit to the length of the visit.
Please note, the remainder of the visitation policy remains unchanged and can be found here
. While visitors are not allowed to wait in the emergency department, exceptions will be made for care plan discussions as arranged with the care team or for end of life. Pediatric patients may be accompanied by two parents/guardians, and obstetrics patients will be allowed two visitors at a time as patient condition allows.
These changes are being made for the safety of patients, staff, and care teams as community transmission of COVID-19 rises.
