Updated hospital visitation restrictions

Ballad Health is currently allowing 2 designated patient-support persons – or visitors – for the duration of each inpatient's visit or hospital stay.

Please note that this only applies to inpatient hospital units and surgery. Outpatient services will continue to allow 1 visitor for each patient.

Inpatient support persons – or visitors – will only be allowed on site from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. However, one visitor may remain with the patient overnight, and this visitor must be in the facility prior to 8 p.m. Visitors who remain with the patient after 8 p.m. will stay in the patient room. If the visitor remaining with the patient after 8 p.m. leaves the facility at any point during the night, they will not be permitted for re-entry until 8 a.m.

Exceptions may be made in labor and delivery, emergency departments where one guest is permitted at all times, and during extenuating circumstances or in the case of end-of-life care. As previously stated, this provision only includes:

  • Inpatient hospital units
  • Surgery

Screenings and face mask requirements

Each visitor will be screened for potential signs of illness and required to wear a cloth face covering, which they need to provide for themselves.

Due to the increased risk of virus transmission, masks with vents and/or valves are not permitted.

These measures are to help contain coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
