Pandemic Temporary Visitor Policy
In order to protect our patients, visitors, physicians and caregivers from the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are temporarily revising our visitation policy, effective immediately, as per the guidelines below.
Visitor Hours are 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
Visitors must sign in and out at the security desk. An adult must accompany visitors under 18 years of age.
For the safety of our patients, visitors and caregivers, all visitors MUST wear a mask at all times in the building.
Cafeteria is open to all guests; social distancing required. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy our take out options and vending machines throughout the facility.
Additional modifications apply to certain patient care areas as outlined below:
- Inpatient Units – No visitation restrictions; social distancing required.
- Inpatient ICUs – No visitation restrictions; social distancing required.
- Patients Undergoing Procedures (Outpatient Services) – No restrictions on support guests.
- Patients in Surgical Services Areas – 2 guests at the bedside, no waiting room restrictions.
- Emergency Room (ER) – No guest restrictions.
- Children’s ER – 2 visitors at a time. Banded Parent/caregiver can spend the night, one at a time.
- Women’s Services (Labor & Delivery, OB Triage and Mother/Baby) – Three banded support people 24/7. Only one support guest in OB Triage.
- Children’s Services (NICU, PICU, Pediatrics) – Two banded parents/guardians. Can stay overnight one at a time.
- No visitation for COVID-19 patients in active isolation unless an end of life exception has been made
Any exceptions to these guidelines must be approved by the Hospital Administrator on Call (AOC) and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
