With the rising cases of COVID-19 in our community, Thomas Health will implement a no-visitor policy effective today, September 5th. This policy is the same policy that was implemented earlier this year in an effort to reduce the risk to our patients and staff. While we hope that this restriction will be short-lived, this policy will be in effect until further notice.
Patients of Thomas Memorial Hospital, Saint Francis Hospital, and the offices of Thomas Health Physician Practices will continue to receive treatment in person. Telemedicine visits for THPP providers remain available.
Caregivers will NOT be able to be present for inpatients, outpatient testing, surgery patients or physician office visits. Exceptions will be made for pediatric, obstetrical services, and the NICU for the duration of the patient’s stay. Additionally, end-of-life visitation may be authorized on a case-by-case basis.
For emergency room visits, if an essential caregiver is needed for assistance, only one person may accompany a patient into the emergency room and then will be asked to leave.
Again, we hope that these changes do not last long.
Exceptions to these restrictions will be made on a case by case basis based on special circumstances and/or prior approval by leadership. Restricted points of entry are in place at our Thomas Memorial and Saint Francis Hospital locations.
