Visitor Restriction Level 2 Now in Place Across Mission Health
To protect our patients, staff and visitors all Mission Health hospitals will be carefully easing our visitor restrictions to Level 2 on January 22, 2021. We are currently limiting visitors to one (1) designated adult patient advocate per day between 9 am – 8 pm.
As a precaution, visitors will not be allowed for COVID-positive patients or with patients awaiting a COVID-19 test result. All visitors are required to wear masks.
Mission Health uses established protocols to care for patients with infectious diseases and follows CDC guidelines related to COVID-19 cases, including isolating the patients and taking steps to ensure our patients, employees, and visitors’ safety.
To further protect our patients and colleagues, the hospital will also restrict and monitor Mission Hospital entrances. The entrances will be:
· Entrance 1: Emergency Department – open 24/7 to patients only
· Entrance 2: For surgery and procedural patients – open Monday – Friday, 4:30 am – 5 pm
· Entrance 4: For direct admissions and outpatients – open seven days a week, 5 am – 8:30 pm
· Entrance 9: Labor and Delivery – accessible 24/7, for expecting mothers only with one significant other and a trained doula, if requested.
· Entrance 10: For cardiac and vascular patients – open Monday – Friday, 5 am – 5 pm
As a reminder to protect yourself and prevent the spread of illnesses:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Stay home when you are ill
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue
- Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands often, using either soap and water or alcohol-based hand gel for at least 20 seconds
