NEW NO VISITOR RESTRICTIONS:
Due to a greater than 100% increase in the number of COVID-19 positive patients in Mercer County between June 15 and June 25, PCH has made the very difficult decision to reimplement a NO VISITOR policy for the safety of our patients and workforce, effective June 26, 2020.
No one will be permitted to be with a patient except for the following:
• One essential caregiver will be permitted for pediatric patients.
• One essential caregiver will be permitted for labor and delivery patients.
• One essential caregiver will be permitted for emergency department patients if the patient is not able to participate in their care.
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.
