Broward Health is committed to protecting our patients, visitors, and caregivers from the possible spread of COVID-19. We are pleased to expand visitation for many of our patients, based on state and county public health information that points to a decrease in COVID-19 cases.
We value the role that loved ones play in the healing process of our patients, and we are currently welcoming visitors according to the following guidelines, effective May 20, 2021:
*Patients may choose one individual 18 or older to be their designated visitor. That designated visitor may visit each day during the patient’s hospital stay.
**Guests visiting COVID-19 positive patients are required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), which will be provided.
The patient may choose one individual to be their designated visitor. We encourage loved ones to use technology for virtual visits.
Please note: A patient’s care team may make exceptions, when appropriate. Visitation guidelines are subject to change if safe physical distancing isn’t possible.
• We encourage patients to use video technology for virtual visits whenever possible.
• We ask visitors to arrive at our hospital wearing a face covering from home and to wear it for the entirety of the visit. Guests who arrive without a mask will be provided one.
• We remind visitors to practice social distancing of six feet away from others and to perform regular hand hygiene.
• As always, all guests will be greeted and registered at the security desk prior to visiting any patients.
Thank you for trusting Broward Health to provide high-quality, compassionate care to your loved one.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
