In an effort to keep our patients and team members safe, we are adopting a no-visitor policy as a proactive measure to reduce the spread of COVID-19 effective March 17, 2020 at 5 pm. No visitors, with few exceptions, will be allowed on the hospital campus until further notice. All visitors who meet exclusion criteria will be screened with key COVID-19 assessment questions. To learn more and review the list of exceptions, click here.
Fort Memorial Hospital tries to meet the needs of its patients and their families and friends by having a liberal visiting policy.
Rest is an important part of any patient’s recovery, yet we recognize that having visitors may also be very beneficial to the patient’s well-being and recuperation. Sometimes, in the patient’s best interest, visitors may have to be restricted. Family and friends: please understand tests, treatments and therapies take time and strength so you may be asked to wait or visit at another time.
Visitors to all patient care units should be free from infection. Children are welcome to visit patients; those under 10 years of age should be accompanied by an adult. We ask that all visitors be cognizant of our patients’ needs and welfare when visiting. Please ask the nursing staff about visiting patients where signage at their door indicates some restrictions. We will be happy to instruct and assist you.
Should you be visiting the hospital during the late evening hours, access may be gained only through a designated entrance.
Obstetrics and Women’s Health – Great Expectations for Women and Babies
General maternity and surgical visitation is from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visitation is restricted during labor. Visitors must be free of infections. Anyone with a recent infectious exposure or who is currently ill should not visit.
Visitors are welcome to ensure the healing process of our young patients. If a visitor has a cold or sore throat they should be advised not to visit at this time. The registered nurse may advise the visitors to limit visiting time according to the specific situation. Parents of the hospitalized child are welcomed at any time and are encouraged to participate in the care of their child. Siblings classified as minors are to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Intensive Care Unit
Visitors are important to the recovery and comfort of our patients. We ask that visitors go to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) lounge and call the ICU desk to ask if it is a good time to visit. Three people may visit at a time. For the patient’s benefit the length of visits may be adjusted at the discretion of the nurse.
Speak Up™ To Prevent Infection
The goal of Speak Up™ is to help patients and their advocates become active in their care. It is helpful for visitors to remember to sanitize and clean their hands often and avoid coughing or sneezing around others. This protects you and your loved ones who may be a patient at a clinic or in the hospital from spreading germs and infections to others, and in turn helps keeps infections from spreading to you.
Fort HealthCare requests all patients, guests, visitors and staff to refrain from using tobacco products while on hospital or clinic grounds.
If you must use tobacco, we would request that you do so off the campus property.
Nicotine gum and other cessation aids are available at the Fort Memorial Hospital Gift Shop. Smoking cessation classes are also offered through the Health Promotion Department. Call (920) 568-5244 for class information.
We appreciate your support as we create healthier environments for all.
