VISITATION GUIDELINES DUE TO COVID-19
The New Jersey Hospital Association has upgraded its visitors policy to "Yellow" status. As of Wednesday, August 11, 2021.
One visitor at a time per patient will be permitted. Visiting hours are as follows:
- 9a-6pm, Monday through Friday
- 9a-4pm, Saturday and Sunday
We ask that you continue to park in our garage and enter the front of the hospital across Medical Center Way. Upon entering the hospital, you will present your ID and undergo a symptom and temperature check. All visitors must be 18 years of age or greater, with rare exceptions. You will receive specific guidelines for visitation from the front desk staff. There is a maximum of two people permitted inside any elevator at the same time.
All visitors must comply with the requirements to minimize spread of infection, including practicing 6-feet social distancing and wearing a surgical mask while inside the hospital as recommended by the CDC. (no bandanna, gaiters, or masks with exhalation valves as a mask). A surgical mask will be provided to visitors if necessary. If a visitor refuses to wear a mask or other PPE as indicated, they will be asked to leave the hospital.
In addition, all visitors must perform hand hygiene before visiting a patient. Once in the hospital, visitors must remain in the patient's room (or Emergency Department bay) throughout the visit, except when directed by hospital staff to leave during an aerosol-generating procedure or other procedures in which visitors are usually asked to leave. Visitors may not be present during procedures or in the recovery room, except for pediatrics, childbirth, and patients with an intellectual, developmental, or other cognitive disability.
