Henry Community Health Visitation Policy

Henry Community Health will begin limiting visitation for the safety of our patients, visitors and care team.

Emergency Department Visitation:

· COVID or suspected COVID patients – no visitors.
· Non-COVID patients – 1 visitor.
· Pediatrics (17 and under) 1-2 visitors at provider’s discretion.

Two visitors will be allowed per day on HCH campuses for the following patients:

· Non-COVID inpatients.
· Non-COVID surgery patients.
· At a patient’s time of discharge.
· When accompanying a minor.

All visitors must be over the age of 18 and may visit between 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Visitors will be screened upon entrance or asked to self screen before entering. Visitors will be required to wear a mask and follow safety protocols while on site.

COVID patients may continue to identify a designated visitor who can visit one hour per day during their inpatient stay. The visitor will be required to wear personal protective equipment provided by HCH. The PPE will consist of a disposable gown, gloves and N95 respirator. HCH staff will educate the visitor on proper wearing of PPE following CDC guidelines.

For the safety of patients, visitors and our team members, HCH recommends staying home if you are not feeling well.
