Southeast Hospital is updating its policy for visitors on the Obstetrics Unit as COVID-19 continues to favorably trend downward in the region.
Beginning immediately, two visitors will be allowed. Those two visitors must be the same two individuals during the course of mom’s stay. One support person can be with mom on a continual basis. The second support person can attend the labor and delivery and then visit during the recommended hours of 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. On the Obstetrics Unit, essential quiet time from 8 to 10 a.m. is recommended to allow bonding time for mom and baby.
All visitors to Southeast Hospital will be screened upon entry. As a reminder, face coverings are required at all SoutheastHEALTH locations. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed to visit at this time.
The Obstetrics Unit visiting policy will be re-evaluated as we continue to monitor the number of regional COVID-19 cases, which is part of our ongoing effort to ensure the safety of patients, families and staff.
