COVID-19: PATIENT & VISITOR INFORMATION

 

 

Visitor Policy (effective 2/14/2022)

 

Patients may have 2 healthy visitors (18 years or older) per day, except in certain circumstances where it could be a community health risk.


For everyone’s safety and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we strongly discourage visitors. We encourage only vaccinated visitors enter the hospital or physician offices. All visitors are required to wear a mask for the entirety of their visit and are subject to Houston Methodist’s screening policy.

 

Emergency department

  • For safety, no visitors are allowed in the waiting room except in special circumstances such as for disabled patients who may need one visitor to provide support.
  • Visitors may be asked to wait in their vehicle until their family member is placed in a patient room.
  • Visitors will be notified once the emergency patient is in a patient room and it is deemed safe for them to have two visitors.
  • COVID-19 patients — Visitors are not allowed if the patient’s physician deems it unsafe.

 

Hospitalized patients, procedures, treatments, doctor appointments and vaccine clinics
Generally, each patient is allowed 2 healthy visitors in the facility at a time. Exceptions include:

  • Hospitalized patients are allowed 1 healthy overnight visitor (18 years or older).
  • Labor and delivery patients are allowed 2 healthy visitors at a time (18 years or older). One healthy visitor (18 years or older) may stay overnight. For the Neonatal ICU, both parents will be allowed to visit.
  • On the day of surgery, 2 healthy visitors at a time are allowed to stay in the waiting room during surgery, then accompany the patient back to the unit.

 

COVID-19 or other infectious hospitalized patients

Visitors are not allowed if the patient’s physician deems it unsafe. Otherwise, 2 healthy visitors (18 years or older) per day will be allowed and will be required to wear the necessary safety equipment at all times.

 

Exceptions

  • Visitor policies will vary for long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs).
  • If you feel an exception is needed, please speak to management.
  • Exceptions will be made for compassionate reasons, based on the patient’s medical condition.
  • Patient’s clergy may visit without being “counted” against the patient’s visitor limit.
  • Visitor hours may be determined by each unit.

 

MASKS ARE REQUIRED IN ALL HOUSTON METHODIST FACILITIES.
