CoxHealth has adjusted visitor restrictions in a few key areas across the health sytem.
Inpatient: Most non-COVID patients in the hospital are allowed one visitor for two consecutive hours per day. Visitors may choose between one of two open visiting opportunities: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., or 4 – 6 p.m. These hours are consistent across all campuses.
Emergency departments and Urgent Cares: Patients are allowed one visitor for the first and last 30 minutes of treatment to assist with admission details and discharge planning.
End-of-life care: Patients who are at end-of-life, or on comfort care, may have two visitors at a time.
According to CoxHealth Communications Manager, Brandei Clifton, inpatient rehab units remain closed to visitors.
Visitors to CoxHealth are required to wear a mask covering the nose and mouth; will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 upon entry; and must wash their hands when entering and exiting the patient’s room. They are also encouraged to stay six feet away from the patient.
Clifton reports that there are no COVID patients being treated at Cox Branson at this time.
CoxHealth’s previous visitor restrictions at all facilities will stay in place except for the new guidelines outlined above. To read the complete list, go to https://www.coxhealth.com/coronavirus/#visitor-restrictions
