COVID-19

St Elizabeth - Edgewood:

 

  • Upon hospital entry visitors are screened if they are showing any symptoms.
  • One visitor/support person (hospital policy is that this person is the second parent, or "person who will wear the second bracelet")
  • No interchanging of visitors. No children / siblings on L&D unit.
  • Doulas are NOT exempt from this policy, and are welcome at the bedside of their clients only if they are the one support person.
    (Proof of certification or training, if pre-certified, required upon entry to the hospital).
  • Many hospitals are now reserving the right, based on PPE (personal protective equipment) supplies on a daily basis, that the birth partner may not be allowed in the operating room in case of a cesarean.
