Care Partner Policy (Updated January 14, 2022)

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.

We encourage you to use digital resources connect with your loved ones in the hospital and to assist them in their care. Below are free resources that are available to use.

Virtual Visiting Resources

Effective at 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 15th, 2022:

Visiting hours for the inpatient floors are still from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Women’s Services will begin visiting hours at 5:30 a.m.

1 essential care partner allowed per patient per day during visiting hours. No overnight visitors will be allowed.

  • Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis and must be approved by the Director-On-Call.

  • No care partners for COVID positive patients.

Adults ages 70 and older are discouraged from visiting.

Care partners must now wear a surgical-grade mask (cloth masks will no longer be acceptable). Piedmont will provide care partners with a surgical mask if they do not have one. Additionally, care partners are still required to undergo a health questionnaire at the entrances for the Omnigo visitor management process with a NO ID NO ENTRY rule for care partners.

All workforce screened prior to start of workday/assigned shift at entrance, or upon reporting to their work unit/department, via temperature or via signs/symptoms quarantine screen that may include a temperature check as needed.


Visitor Management System

Piedmont Columbus Regional has implemented a new visitor management system for its Midtown and Northside campuses.

Visitors (care partners) MUST HAVE A VALID ID (driver’s license or another form of government ID) to enter the facility. If the care partner does not have a valid ID, they will not be allowed inside the facility. Staff will give the care partner a badge sticker that must be worn inside the facility at all times. The ink on the badge will disappear in 12 hours. Once this happens, the care partner needs to either leave the facility or go back to the entrance they came in at be re-screened and get a new badge sticker.


Visiting Hours and Parking

Care partners are an important part of patient care and family and friends are encouraged to visit. Patient comfort and safety may require limited or suspended visitation at certain times.

Parking is available in guest parking areas directly across from the main entrance of the hospital on Center Street and at the 18th Street entrance.
