VISITATION AT HOLY CROSS HOSPITAL DURING COVID-19

(Revised March 1, 2022)

We want you to know that the HCMC COVID-19 Team is constantly reviewing the latest COVID-19 guidelines with the sole purpose of protecting our community and providing a safe and healthy environment here at Holy Cross for our patients, visitors, and our employees. Our goal is to ensure that all involved are as comfortable and as safe as possible. ADA rules apply equally to all patients.

Only one visitor in a 24-hour time-period will be allowed. Here is some information to make for a good hospital visit.

Food and Drinks
We are sorry but Wheeler Peak Café and Enchanted Cup are closed to visitors. We recommend that you pack a sack lunch or bring your own snacks to have on hand to eat. No outside food or drinks are allowed for patients without prior approval from the healthcare team.

Hallways
Visitors should limit their access to hospital hallways, reserving this for entering and leaving the hospital facility.

VISITATION GUIDELINES (AS OF MARCH 1, 2022)

We recognize that having a family member, friend, or support person to be able to accompany a patient is of high importance. In an effort to minimize exposure to all patients and staff, only one visitor in a 24-hour time-period will be allowed. Visitors are not allowed to come go and once they leave, they are done for the 24-hour period. We encourage you to plan accordingly. The care team will determine if visitation is appropriate for COVID patients.

Med Surg – Only one visitor in a 24-hour time-period will be allowed.

ACU – Only one visitor in a 24-hour time-period will be allowed.

Obstetrics – One support person is allowed for laboring patients.

Emergency Department – Only one visitor in a 24-hour time-period will be allowed.

Surgery – Only one visitor in a 24-hour time-period will be allowed. During hours of operation, 6AM to 5PM, send the visitor around to the Ambulatory entrance where they can call the surgery desk to gain entrance to the facility.

Outpatient testing – One support person is allowed for outpatient testing.
