A no-visitor policy until further notice, except in special circumstances.

The only visitors who will be permitted are essential family members who must receive prior approval from the patient care team in cases such as end-of-life care, labor and delivery patients, and for legal guardians of minors receiving care, which includes our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Visitors who are approved must pass the health/quarantine screen. Visitors will not be permitted into the room of a patient who is presumptive positive, confirmed or a Person Under Investigation (PUI) for COVID-19.

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.
