In-Patient Unit Visitation Guidelines for the COVID-19 Pandemic

We are honored that you have entrusted us to care for your loved ones. Our primary goal is to ensure the safety of all those that enter our environment through social distancing, masking and hand hygiene practices. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has directed hospitals to place strict limitations on visitation. Below are our visitation and screening guidelines and any restrictions that may apply.

Currently, there are NO visitors allowed with the following exceptions:

  1. Those visiting a patient in critical condition when death may be imminent
  2. Patient is at end-of-life
  3. Emergent situations
  4. Parent or guardians of pediatric patients
  5. A support person for labor and delivery patient
  6. Bonding visits including in-room stay with a newborn and hospitalized parent
  7. Support person or visitor for patients with physical, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities or cognitive impairments

VISITORS are required to comply with the following:

  • Go directly to the patient care unit and room where their loved one is located.
  • No eating or drinking at any time indoors, including in lobbies or patient rooms
  • Exceptions to the food and drink policy will be made in:  Labor & Deliver, Post-Partum and Pediatrics.
  • Depart the facility at the end of the visitation time-period

  • The PCR or antigen test must have Emergency Use Authorization by USFDA or be operating under the Laboratory Developed Test requirements by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
  • At-home or self-administered tests will not be accepted, per CDPH.
