For the protection of our patients, our visiting hours are temporarily changed.
To protect our patients, associates, and community during the outbreak of COVID-19, Siskin Hospital has made the difficult decision to restrict all visitors.
Effective Friday, March 20, no visitors will be allowed in the hospital. For limited exceptions, one patient care provider over the age of 18 will be allowed as part of the care team per the approval of one of the following limited reasons:
- Patients with disruptive behavior where a family member is key to their care.
- Patients with altered mental status, developmental delays, or severe communication deficits.
- Patients at end-of-life may have a very limited number of visitors.
These allowances will be made on a case-by-case basis and must be approved in advance by Siskin Hospital medical staff and leadership. Each patient care provider will remain in the patient’s room for the duration of the visit unless specifically asked to accompany them to therapy.
Email your loved one! Family and friends are welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly get the message to them. Just mention the patient’s name on the subject line.
No visitors permitted on Siskin West. SubAcute falls under the rules of nursing homes, and the CDC is recommending no visitors for nursing home and subacute units.
If you are scheduled for an appointment at any of our Siskin Outpatient Therapy Services locations, please call in advance and tell a staff member if you have:
- A fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing or a sore throat.
- Recently traveled outside of the United States.
- Been in close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
- Children under 18 are not permitted.
Anyone coming to one of our off-site clinics must bring a mask to wear.
EVERYONE who enters Siskin Hospital or our off-site clinics (associates, patients and designated visitors) will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors each time they arrive. Entry will be denied for anyone with a fever or symptoms.
