HRMC Relaxes Visitor Restrictions
April 18, 2022
Due to the low number of COVID-19 infections in the community, Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is relaxing some of the visitor restrictions, according to Destiny Finn, RN, director of quality and risk management for HRMC.
“Effective April 18, we will no longer limit the number of visitors/support persons in our clinics and all areas of the hospital, except the Birthing Center,” explained Finn. “For the safety of our smallest patients, Birthing Center visitors will be limited to two visitors/support persons during labor and delivery and four visitors/support persons for the rest of the patient's stay.”
Guidelines for those visiting the hospital and HRMC require that
visitors/support persons be:
- Over the age of 12,
- in good health,
- free of any recent respiratory symptoms,
- wear a mask at all times, and
- complete the COVID-19 screening questions upon entry.
“While support of family and friends is important to the healing process, we remain committed to protecting the health of our patients, staff and physicians,” Finn notes. “There may be specific instances where visitation may be limited to protect patients or staff.”
Finn says infection rates will be monitored and restrictions will be implemented if need be. Visitors may call the hospital at 605-353-6200 or visit online at www.huronregional.org/COVID-19-information for the latest visitor guidelines and information on COVID-19 vaccination.
