St. Luke’s Relaxing Emergency Department Visitor Guidelines
St. Luke’s Health Systems has announced relaxing visitor guidelines, including at Hedrick Medical Center and Wright Memorial Hospital. Hospital officials have adjusted their Level-4 visitor guidelines in the Emergency Departments. These guidelines now allow one visitor per patient in our Emergency Departments. Level-4 guidelines previously restricted all visitation in the Emergency Departments.
The Level-4 visitation visitor guidelines include 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.
Although the hospitals are now allowing limited visitation, they continue to take extra precautions with the safety of patients, visitors, and staff in mind with mandatory masking and screening upon arrival.
