McLeod Health welcomes visitors to our facilities. Modified visitation continues for the protection of patients, guests and healthcare workers as a preventive effort against the Coronavirus. Physicians, employees, visitors, and incoming patients arriving for care, testing or moving through the facility are required to wear a facemask while on a McLeod Health campus or in a physician office. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a facemask must be worn when wearing a face shield. Wearing a face mask and face shield together helps to protect your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Visitors must present an ID for visitor verification. An armband/visitor ID will be provided at each facility’s entrance to the visitor designated by the patient. Visitors are required to wear a facemask and the armband/visitor ID at all times.
Each in-patient is welcome to designate two (2) visitors for the duration of their hospital stay. The visitors should remain the same person throughout the patient’s hospital stay. (Alternating or switching of visitors will not be permitted). Visitors must be over the age of 18 and not experiencing any signs or symptoms of illness.
Each non-COVID adult patient will be allowed one (1) visitor during the duration of their ED visit. The one visitor should check in and out at the ED lobby front desk. Visitors of adult patients being seen for emergency care may be asked to wait in the ED lobby or asked to remain in their vehicle if a surge in COVID-19 inpatients requires the use of the ED for a COVID-19 holding area. Children under 18 years of age may have two (2) parents/legal guardians present during their ED visit.
Patients may have one (1) designated visitor for the duration of their hospital stay.
Pediatric patients may have two (2) designated visitors consisting of parents, legal guardians or caregivers.
The NO visitor policy remains in effect for COVID-19 positive patients or COVID-19 rule-out patients.
For patients at end-of-life, the attending physician or Nursing Supervisor, at his or her discretion, can permit additional visitors (greater than two) to see the patient. All visitors will follow the same ID and masking protocols.
