As part of its commitment to the health care of the community, as well as the safety of patients and employees, Mountain Health Network (MHN) is revising its restricted visitation policies for both Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) and St. Mary’s Medical Center (SMMC) in response to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), effective Tuesday, Sept. 29.
“We know that loved ones are an extremely important part of the recovery process, so we are continuing visitation on a restricted basis to support the well-being of our patients,” said Hoyt Burdick, MD, chief clinical officer, MHN. “However, we need to limit the number of visitors to support the safety of our community members and our staff and frontline caregivers.”
The guidelines for adult inpatient and ICU visitation at both CHH and SMMC can be found here.
“We are asking for everyone’s cooperation and understanding in following the restricted visitation guidelines so that we may continue to offer this important component of patient care,” Dr. Burdick said. “Working together, we can optimize the health and safety of our patients, visitors and employees.”
