We continue to closely monitor the outbreak of the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19), and we continue to work with the Miami-Dade Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to respond to any potential COVID-19 cases that may present at our hospital.
In an abundance of caution, effective Monday, March 23, 2020, we are changing our visitation policy until further notice as follows:
NO VISITORS will be permitted in inpatient units or the emergency department except under special circumstances including:
- Visitation of a patient nearing end of life
- One visitor to accompany patient for hospital discharge
- No visitor under the age of 18
- One caregiver permitted to accompany a patient only if required to support the patient’s mental and/or physical needs
These measures will be in effect until we are advised by the CDC or the Miami-Dade Health Department that it is safe to return to normal visiting practices. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.
Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit
Entry and exit is now limited to the main lobby and emergency room only
An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
