Visitor Restrictions

New Visitor Restrictions

At Florida Medical Center, we have been adjusting our actions as the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves. Out of an abundance of caution, we are changing our visitation policy until further notice. Thank you for understanding that this for your health and safety.
 
Visitors will not be permitted in Inpatient Units or the Emergency Department except under special circumstances, such as end of life.
 
As individuals enter Florida Medical Center in areas such as the Emergency Department or registration, hospital staff are asking screening questions about recent travel and symptoms, including fever or respiratory symptoms (shortness of breath or cough).
 
We encourage you to use alternate methods of patient visitation such as phone, Skype, Facebook, What’s App, etc.
 
Outpatient Units are also allowing no visitors, however one caregiver will be permitted to accompany a patient ONLY if required to support that patient’s mental and physical needs, which will be determined by staff on site.
 
We will continue to work with the State Department of Health, the CDC, and our local Infection Control & Prevention Team to respond to any potential COVID-19 cases that may present at our hospital.




Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit

Entry and exit is now limited to the main lobby and emergency room only.
