ProHealth Care loosens hospital visitation restrictions
As COVID-19 numbers continue to decline, we are making our hospital visitation policy less restrictive.
Effective immediately, we will allow two visitors per patient at ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital and ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital. Previously, only one visitor was allowed.
Visitors will not be allowed for patients diagnosed with COVID-19 and for those who are suspected of having the virus.
Two parents or guardians will continue to be allowed to visit patients in the neonatal intensive care unit.
All visitors must be 18 or older, and all must wear a mask at all times within the hospitals. Visitors will be screened at the hospital entrances, and anyone who has a fever or other signs of illness will be asked to leave.
At our ProHealth Medical Group clinics, we will allow two family members or friends to accompany patients. Those accompanying a patient must be 18 or older and wear a mask at all times.
Anyone who is feeling unwell should not visit a hospital or other health care facility unless it is to seek care.
The continuing decline in the number of COVID-19 cases reflects not only the rising number of vaccinated people but also the precautions that have been proven to slow the spread of the virus — wearing a mask, social distancing and hand washing.
