Due to an increase in our community COVID-19 patient population, CMH will temporarily prohibit visitors to our inpatient units.
Exceptions include, but are not limited to, visits for patients near the end of life, parents or guardians of hospitalized children, birthing partners, and patients requiring a support person, and special circumstances at the discretion of the staff such as discharge planning and family meetings.
Visitor Policy processes remain unchanged in the Emergency Department, Surgical Services and Behavioral Health.
Keeping the number of people in the facility to a minimum will help protect our patients, staff, and community.
- Patients undergoing surgical procedures may be accompanied to the Hospital by one well person over the age of 18 years. The companion may remain with the patient for the initial intake and then proceed to the Surgical Waiting Area where they will be contacted by Surgical Services Staff.
- One designated visitor will be allowed based on patient status and need for testing and treatment.
- Will not be accepting visitors at this time.
NOTE: Visitation for special considerations related to pediatric patients, women undergoing childbirth, patients for whom a support person has been determined to be essential to the care of the patient (medically necessary), and patients in imminent end-of-life and compassionate exceptions will remain unchanged.
