WHO IS CONSIDERED A CAREGIVER?

Our current modified visitor policy restricts all visitors from entering our hospitals and permits each patient one caregiver to enter the facility. Your loved one’s care team at the facility will determine if a caregiver is necessary during their stay, such as someone who will provide additional care at the bedside and be involved in the patient’s care after they are discharged. For example, a spouse or partner for the birth of a baby, parent to a child or primary caregiver.

 

All caregivers and patients are screened prior to entry. The screening includes a questionnaire and a temperature check. All personnel performing the screenings have been provided with guidelines of caregivers who meet the above criteria, and each situation will be critically evaluated. Caregivers must be 18 years or older and will be given a color-coded wristband that must be worn throughout the hospital. Caregivers who do not pass the screening will not be permitted entry. Patients who do not pass the screening will be given a facemask and isolated.

  

If you have questions about your status as a caregiver, please call the nurses station who is managing the care for your loved one.
