Piedmont Atlanta Visitor Information

Care Partner Policy (Updated March 16, 2022)

Effective March 16, 2022, Piedmont Atlanta will allow two Care Partners for most inpatients. All other patients (i.e., those here for surgery, outpatient procedures, the Emergency Department, or a physician appointment) are still permitted one Care Partner per day.

Rules for Care Partners are as follows:

  • All Care Partners must wear a surgical or medical (e.g. KN95, N95) mask at all times when in the facility. Cloth masks will no longer be an option for patients, visitors or staff.
  • Care Partners can be with their loved one in the hospital from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily, with no first-time admittance after 8:45 p.m., with the following exceptions:
    • Labor & Delivery and Mother-Baby: One designated Care Partner can stay anytime, including overnight (and must have an identification bracelet that matches mother and infant). Two Care Partners can be present during the designated visiting hours.
    • Emergency Department: One care partner allowed 24 hours/seven days a week.
  • No "switching out" is permitted for Care Partners. The designated Care Partner(s) for a given day will be the patient’s only visitor(s).
  • Care Partners are documented in the patient care record (Epic, using a Sticky Note).
  • Care Partners must be 18 years or older.
  • All Care Partners, vendors, delivery drivers, etc., must pass the health screen and wear an armband to show they have passed.
  • Care Partners may visit the cafeteria, gift shop, chapel and waiting areas if they have their health screening armband visible and are wearing a surgical or medical mask.
  • Care Partners are not permitted in waiting areas on the patient floors unless directed by the care team.
  • Armbands are color-coded by day of the week.
  • Any exceptions to the Care Partner Policy must be approved by the designated Piedmont Atlanta executive.

Piedmont Atlanta Hospital reserves the right to change the Care Partner Policy at any time.

Piedmont encourages the use of electronic devices to communicate with patients who are hospitalized. While we regret the inconvenience it may cause for some patients, safety is at the center of our organization and we believe these steps are necessary to create the safest environment at our hospital.
