Active visitor restrictions
To reduce the spread of respiratory illnesses, we are taking the following precautions to protect our patients and you:
- Patients will be limited to only one visitor* at a time.
- *Visitors are NOT allowed for emergency, high-risk, isolation or respiratory patients who are under observation or test positive for coronavirus (COVID-19)
- No visitors under the age of 12. (circumstances may allow for specific exceptions)
- All patients and visitors will be screened upon entry, required to wear a mask and an armband indicating they have been screened.
- Visitors who screen positive at entry will be asked to reschedule their visit until they are symptom-free.
- Please utilize alternative methods of communication with patients as much as possible.
Thank you for your help in maintaining a safe environment for our patients.
We are continuing to follow CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 public health crisis by implementing additional masking for all patients and visitors in public spaces such as hallways and elevators.
- Masks will be provided to patients and visitors, and these masks should remain on until they are in their private room. Once in a private room, patients and visitors may remove their masks.
- Masks should be reused when visitors leave the room and until they exit the building.
- Visitors may use their own facemasks, instead of the masks provided by the hospital, but a mask must be worn.
TriStar Mt Juliet ER Updates
TriStar Mt. Juliet ER currently has a 'No Visitation' policy in effect. There are a few exceptions and allowances to the policy, including:
- Outpatient Surgery or Outpatient Testing: 1 caregiver
- Further exceptions will be considered on a case by case basis.
Greeters will be screening at the designated entrances with a list of basic questions to help ensure that individuals who might spread the virus get the care they need while not exposing patients, staff and other guests.
During this time, visitors may want to consider alternative communication options, if available, such as phone, FaceTime, text or email.
Thank you for your help in maintaining a safe environment for our patients, colleagues and community.
