Updated hospital visitation restrictions
Ballad Health is currently allowing 1 visitor for each patient at a time.
Please note that this only applies to inpatient hospital units and surgery. Labor and delivery units will allow 2 visitors per room.
Visitation is not currently permitted in rooms with COVID-19 positive patients. Exceptions include:
- COVID-19 positive patients in labor and delivery units, who will be allowed one visitor during the entirety of their hospital stay
- COVID-19 positive patients in the neonatal intensive care unit at Niswonger Children's Hospital and in pediatric rooms, who will be allowed two visitors that must be parents/guardians
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 during extenuating circumstances or in the case of end-of-life care.
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).
