Effective March 18, 2020, Marion General Hospital will be canceling all
elective non-urgent surgeries. This action is in response to Gov. Holcomb’s
announcement on March 16, 2020 to take more steps to slow the spread of COVID-19.
This action will assist the healthcare system with conserving resources
and personnel necessary to meet emerging health needs and protect against
exposure. We will continue to provide necessary emergent procedures prioritizing
care that, if delayed, could negatively affect the patient’s health
outcome. On March 16, 2020, the hospital’s visitor restrictions
have enhanced, as well. They are as follows:
No visitors will be permitted to the acute care (inpatient) areas of the Hospital.
Exceptions will be
considered in the following areas where a patient
may receive one (1) designated visitor:
- Emergency Department
- Special Care Nursery
For Obstetrics and end of life situations, two (2) visitors will be allowed
Visitors will be required to
show identification at check-in (to verify they are the patient’s designated visitor),
complete a respiratory illness risk screening and wear a visitor badge
at all times while in the Hospital.
Visitors will be permitted to stay with a patient during the admission
process, should the patient require admission. Visitation restrictions
for the admitting unit will then apply and be enforced.
