Patient-centered visitation

The health and well-being of our community remains the top priority at Enloe Medical Center.

With the presence of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) expanding in the state, Enloe continues to implement measures to best ensure the safety of our patients, staff and community. Effective immediately, our visitation policy has changed temporarily. These changes are grounded in our commitment to provide safe, quality care and are based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

To protect the health and well-being of our community, the temporary visitation measures listed below will remain in place until further notice:

  • Visitors may enter between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
  • All visitors will be pre-screened for respiratory illness (cough, fever, shortness of breath). Visitors exhibiting these symptoms may not visit patients.
  • Patients may receive one visitor each day.
  • Patients being cared for under isolation protocols may not receive visitors.
  • Patients on the Pediatric Unit or Neonatal ICU may have two parents/guardians present.
  • Mother & Baby Care Center patients may have one support person present.
  • Patients receiving care in the Emergency department or Prompt Care may have one visitor if required for clinical support. (Pediatric patients in these areas may have one parent/guardian present during treatment.)
  • Patients receiving care in outpatient clinics may have one support person present if required for clinical support.
  • Patients receiving care in the Surgery Department may not receive visitors unless required for clinical support. This includes the procedural areas before and after surgery, as well as the recovery area. Patients admitted for post-surgical care may receive visitors once they arrive in their room.

Qualifying exceptions to this policy may be considered in extreme circumstances. Please ask the attendant at the screening station.

We know the positive effect visits have on our patients, and we are happy to help you find alternative ways to communicate with your loved ones. We appreciate your understanding and compliance as we work to keep patients, caregivers and our community safe.
