ER visitation restrictions

Ballad Health is currently allowing 1 designated patient-support person – or visitor – for the duration of each patient’s visit or hospital stay. The patient-support person – or visitor – will only be allowed onsite from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Exceptions may be made in labor and delivery, and emergency departments where one guest is permitted at all times, and 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).

Please read more about these visitation restrictions.
