Paris Regional Medical Center updated its Woman & Baby’s Hospital effective immediately.
The updated visitor policy for the Woman & Baby’s Hospital is as follows:
LABOR & DELIVERY
Visitation to Labor & Delivery will be limited to two people per visit, with no exchanging/trading. Visitors will receive a name badge to be worn while in Labor & Delivery.
Visitors to Antepartum Units will be limited to two visitors per 24 hours, with no exchanging/trading. Visitors will receive a name badge to be worn while in the Antepartum Units.
Postpartum visitation will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with Quiet Hours observed 2-4 p.m.
Two visitors are allowed during Quiet Hours with no exchanges.
Only one support person is permitted for overnight stays from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.
Visitors on the Postpartum Unit generally will not be limited; however, if the number of visitors inhibits the nurse’s ability to provide safe care, excessive visitors will be asked to leave.
Siblings (under age of 16) of the newborn or pediatric patient may visit for one hour per day. Children must be able to wear a mask in common areas and hallways.
We ask that anyone showing any signs of illness please refrain from visiting our vulnerable patient population.
Safety precautions such as self-screening for communicable illness such as COVID-19 and RSV, frequent handwashing and sanitizing, and masking in common areas will be required of all visitors.
Social distancing will be enforced in waiting area with limited seating.
We are excited to take one more step toward business as usual and look forward to welcoming more loved ones into our units.
We will continue to closely monitor the evolving situation in our community and region and will revise policies and procedures as needed. Updated information can always be found here. We greatly appreciate your support and cooperation.
