COVID-19: PATIENT & VISITOR INFORMATION

 

Visitor Policy (effective 7/26/2021)

We encourage people to only bring vaccinated visitors to the hospital setting. As the number of cases of COVID-19 increase in our community, we have adjusted our visitor policy. Visitation requirements may change at management’s discretion.


Hospitalized patients, procedures, treatments and doctor appointments

  • Visitation is limited to 1 healthy visitor per day in medical surgical units, procedural areas. Hospitalized patients will be allowed 1 healthy visitor who is 18 years or older to stay overnight.
  • Intensive care unit (ICU) visitation is limited to 1 healthy visitor per day. We encourage you to use electronic communication, such as a smartphone or video chat whenever possible. For overnight visitors 18 years or older, patients should refer to their unit’s policy.
  • Labor and delivery patients are allowed 2 healthy visitorsOne healthy visitor18 years or older may stay overnight. For the Neonatal ICU, both parents at a time will be allowed to visit.
  • On the day of surgery (either incoming for surgery or already hospitalized), 1 healthy visitor is allowed to stay in the waiting room during surgery, then accompany the patient back to the unit.


COVID vaccination
Patients may bring  1 healthy visitor when they are receiving a COVID-19 vaccine

Emergency department
No visitors are allowed in the emergency department waiting rooms. One healthy visitor may be allowed once a patient is in an exam room. An exception will be made in compassionate cases. Patients who have tested positive or are under evaluation for COVID-19 will not be permitted visitors.


COVID hospitalized patients in isolation
No visitors are allowed, even with proof of vaccination. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis by unit management.

 

Applicability and exceptions

  • All visitors must comply with all PPE requirements, and agree to participate in entry-point screening.
  • Special consideration will be made for disabled patients who may need more than 1 visitor to provide support and knowledge about their care. Decisions regarding visitors of disabled individuals will be made collaboratively with nursing leadership.
  • Visitor policies will vary for long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs).
  • If you feel an exception is needed, please speak to management.
  • Patients’ clergy may visit without being “counted” against the patients’ visitor limit. As with all visitors, visiting clergy must check in with screeners, wear a mask, submit to a temperature check, and state whom they plan to visit.

 

Everyone must wear a mask at all times while in Houston Methodist facilities. Hospitals and private businesses can require masks according to state law.
