Care Partner Policy (Updated August 3, 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.

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

As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise in our communities, and due to its sustained community transmission as a serious infections agent, Piedmont Mountainside Hospital has adopted a no visitor policy for most patients until further notice.

  • One care partner (i.e. a family member or caregiver) will be allowed for the following patients:
    • Care partners if determined necessary for the care of the patient (such as end of life care, NICU and other minors receiving care).
    • Labor and delivery patients will be allowed one care partner.
  • Care partners will not be permitted into the room of a patient who is positive for COVID-19.
     
  • All approved care partners need to follow the safety guidelines:
    • All care partners must pass the health/quarantine screen. Any care partner who does not pass the health screen will be required to leave the facility.
    • All care partners should follow respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette.
    • All care partners must wear a face mask at all times.
    • All care partners should limit their movement within facility to decrease interaction with staff and the public.

Patients are encouraged to use electronic means of visitation such as video call applications on cell phones or tablets.

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.

Only vendors who are essential to patient care or have prior executive approval will be permitted entry and must pass the health screening.

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.
