Piedmont Newnan Visitor Information

Care Partner Policy (Updated September 1, 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

 

Piedmont Newnan will allow each patient to have one care partner (i.e. a family member or caregiver) accompany them for services or during their inpatient stay.

  • Visiting Hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday - Friday; 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
  • Visitors are restricted to ONE care partner per non-COVID patient per 24 hours. This includes patients at the hospital and off-campus outpatient centers.
    • All care partners must pass the daily health screen (including temperature check) and wear a sticker/wristband to show they have passed the screening.
    • Care partners will be rescreened daily.
    • Any care partner with a temperature over 100.0 degrees will not be permitted entry into our facilities.
    • Care partners under the age of 18 are not allowed.
    • Care partners age 70 and older are discouraged from visiting at this time.
    • No care partners will be permitted for our COVID-19 patients.
  • Everyone who enters a Piedmont facility must wear a face mask at all times.
  • Care partners are asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines and remain in the patient’s room, unless visiting the Bistro Cafeteria, Poplar Shop, or Chapel.
  • Labor and Delivery/Family Care Center will continue to allow one identified care partner per patient and the NICU will allow the mother and care partner to visit.


Everyone who enters the hospital, including any approved care partners, must follow safety guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • All approved care partners must pass the health screen, which includes taking their temperature and asking them the COVID-19 screening questions. Any care partner who does not pass the health screen will be required to leave the facility.
  • All patients, staff and approved care partners must wear a face mask inside the facility at all times.
  • All approved care partners must limit their movement within the facility to decrease interaction with staff and the public.

The only vendors who will be permitted entry are those who are essential to patient care, such as those involved in surgery and direct patient services, and they will require approval and must pass the same health screening.

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.
