- All patients nearing end-of-life will have special arrangements made on a case-by-case basis.
Emergency department adult patients may have ONE approved support person with the patient for their duration in the emergency department. If the adult patient becomes admitted, inpatient restrictions would apply, and no visitors will be allowed. COVID-19 positives or persons under investigation (PUI) would not have visitors unless special circumstances are necessary.
Emergency department pediatric patients may have TWO parents or guardians present for their duration in the emergency department.
For outpatient appointments and/or procedures, including pediatric patients, ONE approved adult support person may be with the patient for the duration of their procedure or clinical visit. If the patient becomes admitted, inpatient restrictions would apply, and no visitors will be allowed.
Approved support persons must be over the age of 18 and will continue to be screened upon entering the facility for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure.
