Piedmont Fayette Visitor Information

Care Partner Policy (Updated September 21, 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.

Piedmont Fayette will now allow one care partner (i.e. a family member or caregiver) per patient, per day, as long as the patient is not being treated for COVID-19. Sharing a visitation day is not permitted.

Effective Monday, Sept. 21, Piedmont Fayette will allow patients on inpatient units to have one care partner per day. The hospital’s emergency department will allow one care partner to accompany non-COVID patients. Outpatient services will allow one care partner to accompany a patient per visit. Patients and care partners arriving for lab or imaging procedures will receive a sticker with the day’s date after being screened. In Labor and Delivery, one identified care partner will be allowed throughout the patient’s stay. In the NICU, only the mother and security band holder will be allowed. Visitation is allowed on these units 24/7. All care partners are required to wear a mask.

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.
