Update: Effective, Wednesday, November 23, 2022

Gaylord Hospital monitors the COVID-19 cases in the state and continues to modify inpatient visitation as needed.

Patients Under Investigation (PUI) for COVID-19 or who are COVID-19 positive (+) are excluded from having in-person visitors. Visitors must adhere to the following:

• Visitors must be age 12 and over; children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

• Patients with children under the age of 12 must arrange visitation with the designated care manager.

• Each patient is allowed to have two (2) visitors at one time.

• Visitation hours are Monday through Friday between the hours of 12 p.m.– 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday visitation hours are between the hours of 10 a.m.– 7 p.m.; Gaylord’s designated Holiday (New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day) visiting hours are between the hours of 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

• In the event visitation needs to take part outside of the scheduled hours due to extenuating circumstances, arrangements must be made through the nurse manager/ supervisor and/or care manager. Security and Nursing Supervisor must then be notified.

• New patients admitted after the standard visiting hours will be allowed one brief visit by a designated support person to help with their transition into Gaylord.

• Visitors are to enter and exit through the Jackson Lobby and check in at the Security desk.

Visitors must mask at all times.

• Visits must take place in the patient’s room or in outside designated areas when weather is permitting (outside visits must be approved by the medical staff and healthcare team).

• Visitors must eat or drink outside of the patient's room. 

• Common area (cafeteria, inpatient gym, lobbies, etc.) visitation may be limited and restricted, depending on number of occupants.
