Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, AnMed Health has reinstated a no visitation for any inpatient areas with the exception of end-of-life and special circumstances.
Beginning this week, visitation will be limited to only one support person for end-of-life, labor & delivery, pediatrics, outpatient facilities, surgery, and the Emergency Department.
There will be no visitation under any circumstance for COVID-19 positive patients or patients under investigation (PUIs) for the coronavirus.
Face-coverings must be worn at all times by the patients and their support person. Each will be screened
upon arrival. The support person must be at least 16 years old.
These restrictions apply to the AnMed facilities including: AnMed Health Medical Center; AnMed Health Women’s and Children’s Hospital; AnMed Health Oglesby Center; AnMed Health Cannon and AnMed Health clinics, practices, labs, procedure areas, and radiology areas.
For the safety of the patient, staff, and community, individual who believe they could have COVID-19 symptoms,
are urged to call their provider before showing up at the office or Emergency Room.
“We remain vigilant about the potential spread of COVID-19,” a spokesperson said. “In addition to reinstating visitation restrictions, we continue to require everyone at our campuses and outpatient facilities to wear facecoverings and be screened upon arrival. We are also frequently cleaning and disinfecting all parts of our
facilities, offering e-visits and other virtual care options whenever possible.”
