Making Our Facilities Safe

Methodist Hospitals is strictly following guidelines established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Indiana State Department of Public Health designed to ensure that healthcare institutions are best able to care for COVID-19 patients while keeping other patients safe from infection.

Visitation Policy

All visitors must be screened for symptoms of illness and properly wearing a mask before entering.

To ensure our patients’ safety and confidentiality, all visitors must stop at the Information Desk upon entrance to the hospital lobby. A representative will provide you with a visitor’s pass and direct you to the appropriate area of the hospital campus. If you or someone with you needs a wheelchair or other special assistance, please advise the Information Desk representative when you arrive.

General Visitation is between the hours of 8 AM – 8 PM. Only two visitors are allowed in the room at one time for proper social distancing and patient safety.

One person (the patient’s designated support partner) is allowed to stay with the patient for emotional support during the patients hospital stay. This person may be a family member, friend, or healthcare representative of the patient’s choosing, but must be at least 18 years of age or older and must be able to safely stay alone and take care of his/her own care needs. If after 8 PM, the patient’s support partner will enter the hospital through the emergency department entrance and will be required to stop at the security desk to be screened &
cleared of illness before receiving a pass.

COVID and PUI patients are allowed one visitor per day.
• All visitors for COVID positive rooms must report to the nurses station for instruction of required PPE before entering patient room.

• Visitors may access all public areas of the hospital including the cafeteria and waiting areas.

• COVID-19 is a contagious disease, and there is risk of exposure in any public space. Seniors and those with underlying medical conditions are at greater risk, as are those who are un-vaccinated. Methodist Hospitals strongly encourages all its guests to get vaccinated at one of our convenient vaccine clinics.

Cleaning Protocols

We are practicing aggressive cleaning protocols throughout our facilities. Methodist Hospitals’ environmental services team increased its rounds and provided disinfectants to individual departments for hourly cleaning between those rounds.

Social Distancing

Methodist Hospitals is following the latest CDC masking guidelines. We have also reorganized waiting areas and adopted scheduling procedures to have fewer people in waiting areas to reduce wait times and to promote social distancing.

Controlling Access to our Facilities

All those entering Methodist Hospitals facilities are screened for symptoms.
