|Due to the most recent healthcare concerns, Minnie Hamilton Health System has placed restrictions on visitation to better protect patients, staff and the community.|
Below are the guidelines for visiting Acute Care, the Emergency Department and Long Term Care.
All visitors must sign in at registration and receive a pass before they are permitted to visit.
Acute Care and Emergency Department -
Each patient is limited to one visitor at a time and any visitor 16 and under is not permitted with certain situations allowing some flexibility.
Long Term Care -
Visitation has been discontinued until further notice. A portable phone is available which will allow you to speak directly to your loved one. The number is 304-354-5142.
These are the testing requirements for the evaluation of patients who may be ill with or who may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus.
⦁ Exposure - If in the past 14 days since first onset of symptoms, the individual has a history of either
⦁ Live in or travel to geographic areas with sustained community transmission.
⦁ Close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 illness; and
⦁ The person has these symptoms - fever and/or symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g., cough, shortness of breath).
If both exposure and symptoms are present, patient will be tested for COVID-19.
