Princeton Community Hospital is pleased to announce the resumption of urgent elective surgeries effective April 28, 2020. Because of the continuing threat of the COVID-19 virus, no visitors will be permitted to accompany the surgical patient inside the hospital. We request that a family member drop off the patient at the Parkview Center entrance and pick them up at the same location upon discharge. We will communicate with the family member via telephone. An exception to the “no visitor restriction” may be considered only if the patient requires direct assistance from a family member or lay caregiver.
PCH has made the very difficult decision to implement a NO VISITOR policy for the safety of our patients and workforce, effective March 24, 2020.
No one will be permitted to be with a patient except for the following:
If an essential caregiver is needed for assistance in patient care (determined by the healthcare team), only one person will be permitted to accompany the patient.
End of life care will be authorized on a case-by-case basis.
Authorized persons will be identified with an armband provided to them at the entrance screening or by the healthcare team.
Additional visitors will not be permitted in the lobby or waiting areas. Restricted points of entry are in place with screening protocol.
COVID-19 testing is still available (just not drive-thru) daily at our main entrance from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., when ordered by your physician.
With your physician order in hand, please come directly to the main entrance for testing.
