Visitor Restrictions

At Piedmont Medical Center, we have been adjusting our visitation policy as the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic evolves. 

We have instituted a ONE VISITOR POLICY for COVID-19 positive patients at Piedmont Medical Center. COVID-19 positive patients are permitted one visitor throughout the duration of their hospital stay. This sole visitor is not interchangeable. We thank you for understanding the need for this policy in order to best ensure the safety of all patients and staff during this time.

Visitors will be screened for fever, respiratory symptoms or travel to high risk locations prior to entering the hospital, and required to wear visitor identification, a facemask, and sanitize their hands. Specifically designated waiting areas allow physical distancing for designated visitors and include additional cleaning protocols. 

Any visitor not meeting screening criteria will not be permitted to enter the hospital. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

Obstetrics Visitor Restrictions

During active labor and recovery, there will be two visitors allowed. These support visitors will not be allowed to rotate with others. Once mom moves to postpartum, one visitor will be allowed, the second support visitor will leave at this time of transition.

Thank you for following these rules and allowing the staff at PMC to keep all mothers and babies safe.

Events

Our top priority is making sure our patients, visitors, staff and community remain safe. For that reason, we have decided to temporarily forego hosting events, such as educational medical seminars and classes, and health screenings, thereby lessening the potential for exposure to coronavirus. Please continue to check our website for information on when these events will resume.



Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit

Entry and exit is now limited to the main lobby and emergency room only.

An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
