Care Partner Policy (Updated October 7, 2020)

A Care Partner may be a relative, partner, friend or anyone (over age 18) that the patient chooses to have at their side during care. A Care Partner takes an active role in caring for their loved one in the hospital.

  • All Care Partners must wear a face covering at all times on campus – including in patient rooms.
  • Care Partners can be with their loved one in the hospital from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily.
  • Patients can have one designated Care Partner per day, with the exception of end-of-life. Care Partners are documented in the patient record.
  • 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 while they are in the hospital.
  • No Care Partners will be permitted for patients diagnosed with or under investigation for COVID-19. A “No Visitors” sign will be placed on the patient’s room door.
  • Care Partners are asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines and remain in the patient’s room and wear a face covering.
  • Care Partners may visit the cafeteria, gift shop, chapel and waiting areas if they have their health screening armband visible and are wearing a face covering.
  • Armbands are color-coded by day of the week. (Employee color-coded badge stickers are the same color as visitor armbands 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.
