Due to an increase in COVID-19 patients in Arkansas and across the country, St. Bernards Medical Center is implementing new visiting policies for our hospital. Effective tomorrow (April 20, 2020), visitors are only allowed in the medical center for end of life, pediatric and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) patients. Only one parent of a minor or NICU patient will be allowed to visit at a time.
If you are a visitor in one of these categories, your name will be entered in the patients chart and you will be screened. You must provide photo identification and wear a mask and identifying wristband while on the St. Bernards Medical Center Campus.
Please know that we worked very hard to maintain normal and abbreviated visiting hours for as long as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause for your family, but we must take this step for the protection of our patients, community and staff.
Even in exceptions, visitors must be 15 or older and pass a health screening before entering the hospital. All exceptions require the approval of hospital administration. Doctors and other staff on the patient floor are not authorized to grant exceptions without approval.
Thank you for your cooperation.
We will work to restore visiting hours as soon as possible and will be happy to work with you and your family to stay in touch with one another using technology. Someone will call the essential person listed in the chart daily to give an update on the patient between the hours of 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
Thank you for trusting us with your care here at St. Bernards Medical Center. Please do not hesitate to ask your caregiver if you have questions.
