Hospital Visitor Protocols Revised
Visitor protocols for Hedrick Medical Center and Wright Memorial Hospital have been revised. With the continued spread of COVID-19, Hedrick Medical Center and Wright Memorial Hospital revised its visitor guidelines to further protect patients and care team members. The new visitor guidelines fall in line with the Saint Luke’s Kansas City area hospitals as ‘Level 4 Restricted.’
This means they are restricting visitors to one visitor per patient per day, no visitor re-entry, and no visitors under the age of 14. Masks are always required to be worn by the visitors, even in the patient rooms.
No visitors will be allowed in the Emergency Departments. Exceptions to this restriction will be made for patients under 18 or for patients who are cognitively impaired.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospitals are taking extra precautions with the safety of patients, visitors, and staff in mind with mandatory masking and screening upon arrival.
