What you need to know
Effective Friday, March 13, 2020, Hackensack Meridian Health (HMH) will restrict visitors from all HMH hospitals.
Visitation exceptions will be made in certain situations, including:
- Pediatric care
- Ambulatory Care/Same day surgery (one visitor)
- Maternity/Labor and delivery (one visitor)
Once a visitor is approved, they will undergo a temperature screening. They will also need to provide their contact information in the event that tracing becomes necessary. Phone and video calls to patients are welcome and encouraged.
As a precautionary measure and to keep patients and team members safe, HMH is also asking its team members to self-monitor their temperature before they report to work.
These visitor restrictions will be reevaluated in 30 days.
