Jul 09, 2020 2:45 pm
Columbia Memorial Health July 9, announced the expansion of its patient visitation guidelines. The Hudson-based health facility advised the changes will "maintain the safety of patients, visitors, staff and the environment of care concerning the prevention of COVID-19 transmission." The amended provisions are effective immediately. Under the new guidelines, Visitation will be allowed between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily; patients can have one healthy visitor per day; and that visitor must be 18 or older. Visitors entering the hospital must wear a mask. After entering the main lobby, they will be checked in, screened and have a temperature check. Visitors will be required to wear a face mask at all times, and perform hand hygiene upon entering and leaving the patient room. There are more extensive requirements for visitors to patients on enhanced precautions. CMH will ask visitors unable or unwilling to comply with the guidelines to leave the hospital. Psychiatric Services will not be accepting visitors until further notice. The Department of Emergency Services will allow visitors on a limited case by case basis.
