For the safety of our patients and staff we need to make a change to our visitation policy.
We are accepting limited visitors. Bay Area Hospital will permit one adult visitor at a time per inpatient in the facility. Visitors should come through the new main entrance Monday-Friday, or the Emergency Department (ED) entrance on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Limited visitors will continue to be screened at hospital entrances, and anyone entering the facility will be required to wear a face mask unless they have a medical reason why they are unable to wear a mask.
Exceptions to the limited visitor policy will be made on an individual basis; generally speaking, Bay Area Hospital will allow for exceptions to the one visitor policy in birth and end of life situations only. At this time, children under the age of 12 will not be allowed to visit unless there’s a special circumstance. If you need special consideration, please contact the unit charge nurse.
Some things you can do for your loved ones in the hospital when visiting is restricted:
Communicate by phone, face time/skype, send a card, email, and send flowers
