St. Luke’s has revised its visitation policy to help improve the experience of our patients while still keeping our facilities safe and healthy during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Allowed Visitors (specified below)
- Must wear a mask (fabric or surgical), be in good health and participate in a health screening.
- If a health screening determines symptoms of an illness are present (example: temperature, cough, shortness of breath, etc.) the visitor will not be allowed to stay.
- If a surgical mask is provided it should be reused for the patient’s entire stay.
- Visitor movement will be restricted.
No visitors are permitted at St. Lukeʼs Warren Campus except under these special circumstances:
- Visitation of a patient nearing the end of life
- One parent/guardian at a time for pediatric patients
- One visitor to accompany patients for hospital discharge
- One visitor to accompany a patient with mental health, intellectual or cognitive disability, or behavioral concerns who requires a support person for their well-being
- No child under age 12 is permitted to visit in the hospital.
For All Outpatient Appointments
- One visitor per patient for outpatient appointments
- One visitor per patient for physician office visits
- One visitor for patients undergoing same-day surgeries and procedures
- One visitor per patient in the Emergency Department
Infusion and Radiation Therapy areas limiting visitors
Due to COVID-19, we are currently not permitting visitors in our infusion treatment areas. Visitors are encouraged to drop off a patient and provide their cell phone number to our staff so that we can contact them when treatment is over. Exceptions may be allowed for special circumstances such as language barriers. Patients with questions related to infusion services should call 484-503-4673.
OB/GYN and Maternal Fetal Medicine offices limiting visitors
Effective immediately (3/20/2020) and indefinitely, no person (this includes partners, support persons and children) will be permitted to accompany a patient to an outpatient visit at St. Lukeʼs Obstetrics & Gynecology and St. Lukeʼs Maternal Fetal Medicine offices. This applies to office visits only. Patients with questions should contact their St. Lukeʼs OB/GYN practice.
Reasonable accommodations will be made for pediatric visits provided visitors are in good health. Sibling visitors allowed by exception must be in good health and are subject to a health screening.
Visitation restrictions may change as the situation warrants.
