Memorial Hermann Modifies Visitor Policy, effective Tuesday, March 10
THE WOODLANDS, TX -- To further protect the health of our patients, workforce and the community, and prevent the potential spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), Memorial Hermann is modifying its visitor policy across all Memorial Hermann acute-care and rehabilitation hospitals and Convenient Care Centers, effective Tuesday, March, 10 at 7 a.m. until further notice.
The modified visitor policy limits the number of visitors per patient, restricts the number of access points and implements screening for all visitors.
Visitation will be limited to two adult (18 years or older) visitors per patient, per day.
All visitors and patients, including vendors and contractors, will be screened at designated entry points, including the Emergency Center.
For patients in isolation, visitation will be limited to one adult (18 years or older) per patient, per day. These visitors will also be required to wear personal protective equipment and will not be permitted to visit common areas within the facility.
The brief screening process includes a temperature check and questionnaire. Individuals cleared through the screening process will receive a color-coded wristband which must be worn throughout their hospital visit. Visitors who are sick or do not meet screening criteria will not be allowed to enter the facility.
