Visiting Hours & Policy

At Memorial Medical Center, our top priority is safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our patients, providers, employees and community. We continue to closely monitor the prevalence of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community and follow state and federal guidance as we adapt our operations to safely care for and support our patients. 

To protect our patients and staff, effective June 29, 2020, hospital visitation will be restricted as follows:

Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, and post-surgery Observation Unit:

Due to social distancing needs and limited space in ED, no visitors are allowed in the ED or ICU or either waiting room at this time. Exceptions may be in certain specific circumstances as determined by the ED and ICU Director/Manager/Team Lead

Inpatient:

  • Visitors will not be allowed to visit the Covid-19 positive patients or patients being ruled out for Covid for their own safety.

  • Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatrics-may have one parent or support person in their room

  • Maternity/Labor and Delivery-may have one support person in addition to the mother and child in their room

  • Patients Undergoing End-of-Life:

    • Two rotations of 3 persons (family, friends, or pastoral care) these will be coordinated with the Unit Director/RN Charge

    • **Family waiting to rotate must remain in their cars until notified of the rotation shift

      • Per Governor's mandate gatherings of 5 will be honored

      • The patient counts as one of the five

      • The nursing staff counts as another of the five

    • When possible Unit will notify security/screening station of pending rotation

  • All visitors will be screened upon entry of the facility.  We continue to screen everyone who enters our facilities for symptoms consistent with COVID-19, per CDC guidelines. Any visitor with a fever or who is not feeling well will be prohibited from entering the facility.

  • All visitors will be required to wear a mask at all times.

  • Visitors will be instructed to remain in the room for the duration of the visit.

  • Visitors will be asked to follow hand hygiene protocol, using hand gel or soap and water, while limiting surfaces touched before entering patient rooms.

  • During this time we encourage family members to use "video visits" options such as phone calls, FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp and other online platforms to stay in contact with their loved ones.

Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation as we work to maintain a safe environment for our patients and team.

Common Areas Closed

We have temporarily closed our chapel and cafeteria as another step to minimize the risk of exposure to patients, employees and the community. Our cafeteria will continue to operate for patients and staff only.
