Manatee Memorial Hospital Suspends Visitation on Nursing Inpatient Units and ER
[Bradenton, Florida – August 2, 2021]
As part of continuing efforts to keep our staff, patients and community safe amid the current COVID-19 surge, Manatee Memorial Hospital’s Inpatient Nursing Units and the ER, will not be allowing patient visitation starting, Tuesday, August 3, 2021, until further notice. We will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 trends, and we hope to again relax this temporary restriction as soon as we can safely allow visitation.
Limited exceptions to the no-visitor policy include:
· Patients in certain extraordinary circumstances, such as end-of-life care.
· Labor & Delivery Unit and Mother-Baby Unit patients may have one support person.
· Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patients may only have one visitor per day.
· Patients in surgical, procedural and therapy departments may each have one support person. The support person must remain in the designated waiting area.
Just a reminder, everyone entering the hospital must use antibacterial foam, wear a mask upon entry and keep the mask on at all times while at the hospital.
In lieu of in-person visitation, we continue to encourage family/friends to call, use FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or send email notes through our ePatient Note Service at https://www.manateememorial.com/patients-visitors/epatient-notes
