Bryan Health begins restricting visitors to medical centers

Bryan Health Physician Hotline

Bryan Health has announced they will implement visitor restrictions starting Monday, March 16th at their medical centers.

It’s all in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All visitors will be screened at the entrance of the building. Anyone who doesn’t meet the requirements to enter, will be asked to reschedule their visit. If the screening indicates that they are a high risk individual, they’ll be offered follow-up resources through Bryan Health ezVisit or the COVID-19 Hotline.

Only one to two visitors will be allowed per inpatient or outpatient. While, NICU and pediatric visits are limited to parents or legal guardians only.

Family Birthplace visitors are also limited to one or two healthy adults, but siblings must be pre-arranged with nursing staff.

However, as always, those who are visiting patients in isolation rooms are required to use personal protective equipment.

Do NOT visit patients in the hospital if:

– You are sick, especially if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19.

– You’ve had contact with an individual who has had the COVID-19 infection within the past 14 days or who has traveled to high risk areas.

Bryan Health is asking that all visitors follow good hand hygiene, avoiding touching their face with unwashed hands, cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow, avoid contact with sick individuals.

They also encourage those who have been exposed or are showing symptoms of COVID-19 to self-quarantine to avoid community spreading.
