Visitor Guidelines

VISITOR GUIDELINES

  • Two designated essential caregivers/visitors
  • Only one visitor allowed at a time
  • Universal COVID-19 screening
  • Universal masking required at all times

St. Bernards Medical Center allows all patients to have designate two essential caregivers/visitors, but only one person may visit a patient at any point, both day and night. Designated individuals are a vital component of the healing process, and St. Bernards recognizes the help that visitors provide in assisting patients during their stay.

All essential caregivers/visitors will be identified during the registration process and screened for COVID-19. They must wear a screening sticker and sign a disclosure agreement while receiving an armband to wear on admission. Visitors must return to the admissions desk in the tower daily to be re-screened for COVID-19. 

Masks that fully cover the mouth and nose are required to be worn at all times, and essential caregivers/visitors are strongly encouraged to provide their own. In addition, they must wash and sanitize their hands frequently while maintaining proper social distancing.

Upon entering a patient's room, a visitor must remain there except to visit the cafeteria, the 1900 Market or the Admissions desk for daily screening. 

Outpatients at our Emergency Department, One Day Surgery, HeartCare Center or Cancer Center may only designate one visitor to remain with them during their evaluation, procedure and/or treatment.

Thank you for your cooperation.
