Hospital Visitor guidelines as follows:
The visitation policies of Memorial Hospital and Manor have changed due to issues surrounding Covid-19. Thank you for your understanding during this time. We will resume normal visitation when it is safe for our community.
ICU and Med-Surg – All visits will be scheduled by the nurse for 1 person per day. The length, frequency, and time of the visit will be determined by the nurse and the visitor. Nurse (or designee) will communicate to the thermal screener date and time of visit. At time of scheduling the visit, the nurse will screen visitor for COVID. This process will be communicated at time of admission. All other patients can resume normal visitation, 2 visitors at a time, 7am – 400pm. No visitors less than 18 years of age.
Same Day Surgery – One visitor may accompany patient. The nurse will identify visitor and determine COVID status during assessment day before procedure.
Emergency Department – Visitation in the ED will be determined by the charge nurse.
OB/GYN (Kirbo Women’s Center)– Two visitors per patient per day.
Willow Ridge – Visitation can occur at any time in a designated visiting space. If resident resides in a private room, visitation can occur in the room. Please wear masks and social distance 6 feet. Visitors must be fully vaccinated. If visitation is needed during early or late hours, please call ahead for admission.
Memorial Manor – Normal visitation.
All visitors will still need to be screened and given a mask by screeners at ER and front entrance. The screener will ask the visitor to apply visitor tag when entering the building and to check out with screener when exiting through the ER and front entrance. All Inpatient visitors will be logged in and out on visitor log. All visitors will be given a mask to wear while in the hospital.
To ensure optimal safety, please consider vaccination.
