In our Milwaukee and Fox Valley hospital patient care units, visitor lists are limited to two adult parents/caregivers only. These two names must remain the same for the entire stay. These two individuals are allowed to be at the bedside (for overnight and extended stays only) at the same time. Allowing them both to be here at the same time promotes the family-centered care we are committed to and provides additional support at the bedside, particularly for long hospital stays. We are still able to maintain low numbers of visitors with this policy, which helps reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Exceptions will be made for some situations that could include end-of-life and caregiver teaching and educational sessions.
At our Surgicenter and for same-day procedures at the Milwaukee hospital (where an overnight stay is not required), patients can only have one individual who is a guardian or over the age of 18 in the building at a time. Visitor lists in Epic will be limited to two names. These two names must remain the same for the entire stay. This will help us reduce the number of people coming into our facilities.
In all of our urgent, primary and specialty care clinics, and in our imaging and emergency departments only one caregiver (and no siblings) will be allowed to accompany a child to an appointment. This will help us reduce the number of people coming into our facilities. This will help us reduce the number of people coming into our facilities.
