At MemorialCare, we pride ourselves on being a patient- and family-centered organization and know in-person visits provide support and reassurance for patients and families alike. The COVID-19 pandemic is a difficult time for all of us. Times have changed quickly and dramatically due to the virus. As a patient-centered hospital, we must do everything we can to prevent the spread of this disease. Below are temporary COVID-19 visiting guidelines for MemorialCare Hospitals. These are general guidelines; at any time, visitation may be restricted, or hours limited at the discretion of hospital leadership to ensure the safety of patients, staff, physicians, and visitors. All visitation is subject to the ability to maintain social distancing and visitors complying with these guidelines.
In addition to the guidelines below, The California Department of Public Health requires the hospital to verify the vaccination status of each visitor. MemorialCare will screen each visitor to verify they are fully vaccinated or have verified documentation of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test within 72 hours of the visit. Limited emergent exceptions may apply for support persons visiting critical care patients, pediatric and NICU patients, labor and delivery patients and patients with physical, intellectual, developmental disability and special assistance needs.
Each visitor entering a MemorialCare facility must comply with the following:
Note: These guidelines are for the protection of patients, staff, and visitors. Visitation is a privilege. Anyone who does not follow this guidance is subject to removal from the facility with further visiting privileges rescinded. Thank you in advance for your full cooperation. Any exceptions to these guidelines must be approved by administration or designee prior to visitation.
