Loved ones are welcome again.
It’s been a hard year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our community has faced a number of new challenges as we have worked to protect each other’s health and well-being. Perhaps one of the biggest of those challenges has been separation from others – whether that means forgoing in-person gatherings, grabbing coffee with a friend or visiting a loved one who is receiving care at the hospital.
As we come closer than ever to putting the pandemic behind us, we are pleased to announce that our visitation restrictions are relaxing, and loved ones are welcome again. We know that it has been difficult to be apart from family and friends who are receiving care, and we want to thank you for your patience and understanding while restrictions were in place to protect the health of our patients and staff.
We are so pleased to welcome our patients’ loved ones back to the hospital to visit. Our updated visitor policy can be found below.
It’s been a hard year. Let’s make the next one better…together.
Frye Regional Medical Center recognizes the important role that loved ones play in a patient’s health care journey and we appreciate how understanding our community has been with our Limited Visitation Policy during the last few months. After careful consideration, Frye Regional Medical Center has revised its visitor guidelines, effective May 5, 2021.
Visitation is limited to two visitors per inpatient. Visiting hours are from 8 am to 8 pm daily. The Emergency Department and Women’s Health Birthing Center currently allow 24-hour visitation. For outpatient locations, one visitor may accompany adult patients as waiting room social discancing allows.
- Must be 13 years or older and minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times
- Are required to enter through the hospital Main Entrance
- May switch out, but are limited to two visitors in the patient’s room at a given time
- Must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times
- Are strongly encouraged to limit their time visiting to allow patients to heal
Patients in isolation, those suspect for COVID-19, or those in the ICU may be subject to stricter vistor limitations.
