Updated visiting restrictions are in place for all locations effective Feb. 1 at 8 a.m.
What to Expect During Your Visit
While we expect to care for COVID-19 patients for some time, we’ve taken extra steps to create a safe, secure environment for our patients, families and staff, which includes requiring a face mask (covering the nose and mouth) when visiting a Beaumont location. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to work together to beat the pandemic. During your visit, please note the following restrictions that are designed to keep you and your family safe:
Everyone who is age 5 and older, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth while in our facilities. Any person refusing to wear a mask will not be allowed to visit. If a person is wearing a mask
with a one-way vent, an ear loop mask must replace the vented mask or may be worn over the vented mask.† Ear loop masks will be provided at each entrance if you do not have one. When needed, additional Personal Protective Equipment
(PPE) will be provided by Beaumont and must be worn at all times.
† The CDC does not recommend using one-way valves or vented masks as they do not prevent the transmission of COVID-19. Anyone wearing these types of masks into a Beaumont facility will be asked to cover them with a standard ear-loop mask.
We will continue to require masks and screen employees, vendors, patients and visitors in our hospitals and outpatient facilities. We take care of incredibly sick and vulnerable people and we need to continue protecting our patients, families and staff.Dr. Nick Gilpin, Beaumont's Director of Infection Prevention
Safe Visitation Practices
- Practice social distancing, keeping 6 feet from others at all times. A person visiting may be asked to leave a care area if safety or social distancing cannot be maintained.
- If visiting an inpatient, stay in the patient’s room at all times except for quick trips to the bathroom or to purchase food.
- A support person may eat in single patient rooms or multi-patient rooms IF there is not a roommate. If there is a roommate, the support person must eat in a non-patient area as designated by staff.
- Clean hands upon entry and exit to any patient care area.
- Disposable gloves must be removed and thrown away.
- Leave the Beaumont facility immediately after the visit is over.
- Learn more about how Beaumont is keeping you safe.
COVID-19 Symptom Screenings
Every person visiting must show no symptoms of COVID-19, be COVID-19-diagnosis free and must not be under evaluation for COVID, other than waiting for test results. For example, some may be waiting for test results to travel or attend an event, but not
be suspected of having COVID-19.
We ask that everyone coming to our facilities upon each visit self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms before entering:
- People screening positive will not be allowed to visit.
- People screening negative must sanitize hands, and wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth.
Signage with the self-screening questions and instructions in English, Arabic and Spanish, will be located at facility entrances.
Visitation restrictions are currently in place for all of our hospitals. These guidelines are listed below:
- From 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.:
- TWO SUPPORT PEOPLE each day are welcome at the bedside, regardless of vaccination status. Support people may alternate during the day, exchanging in the lobby or outside the hospital, up to 3 exchanges per day.
- TWO SUPPORT PEOPLE or parents/legal guardians are welcome for the following:
- Patients being evaluated for and/or in hospice care or nearing end of life.
- Children (21 years of age or under) not in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Families of babies in NICU must talk with the doctor/nurse about NICU visitation.
- Overnight (providing space allows and safety can be maintained):
- ONE SUPPORT PERSON or parent/legal guardian:
- Children (21 years of age or under) not in NICU.
- Patient in serious or critical condition or in hospice care.
- Adult with disability who needs help with mobility, communicating or managing anxiety.
- Laboring woman. Approved doula may be present in addition to support person.
- TWO SUPPORT PEOPLE:
- Patient at end-of-life.
- A laboring woman may have birth partner and a second person IF the second person is a doula.
- ONE SUPPORT PERSON PER DAY may visit with appropriate PPE to be worn at all times.
- TWO SUPPORT PEOPLE PER DAY may visit a patient who is being evaluated for and/or in hospice care or nearing the end-of-life.
If needed for the physical or emotional health of the patient:
- Each patient may bring ONE SUPORT PERSON with them. Children under 21 may come with TWO PARENTS/LEGAL GUARDIANS. Others must wait outside of the building until the patient is ready to leave. Patients
must not bring children under 16 to their appointment and must reschedule the appointment if childcare is not possible.
Children are welcome during outpatient Lab appointments. For Imaging (e.g., X-ray, ultrasound, etc.), children are permitted in the waiting rooms if the patient brings another adult to supervise them.
Patients are welcome to bring their children when picking up medications in the Beaumont Outpatient pharmacies.
ONE SUPPORT PERSON may stay with the patient until they settle into an EC room for evaluation and treatment. However, this is based on the site leader’s discretion. If unable to stay, due to facility constraints,
this support person is to be provided with a phone number to call and check on the patient’s status and must return to their vehicle. Once a support person joins a patient in their room, they must stay in the room for the duration
of the visit.
ONE SUPPORT PERSON may be present in the Waiting Room for the duration of the surgery, in Pre-Op (once the patient is settled) and Post-Op for discharge instructions. TWO SUPPORT PEOPLE/PARENTS/LEGAL GUARDIANS for children 21 years and under may be present.
Staying Connected to Your Loved One
We know that these are trying times; therefore, we have launched new ways of communicating through phones, smart phones, and tablets to keep you connected with your loved ones.
While restricting visitation is necessary to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, we know how important family and friends are to health and healing. Learn how you may “see” and “be with” your family and friends during
the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Call in-room, hospital phone.
- Leave a personal cell phone, tablet or laptop for audio/video calls or texting.
- If your loved one has been issued a Beaumont-owned electronic device (i.e., iPad or tablet), you may speak with them via the 8x8 Video Meetings app. Guides for patients and family members are available for download.
- Connect with your loved one’s doctor, nurse, and other health care team.

To reduce the number of unwanted germs that are taken back home, we strongly discourage personal items being brought to the hospital that are not truly necessary. If you do have items to drop off, please limit the items to one small bag
of personal belongings. Do not send items of significant value, with the exception of personal phones or devices your loved one may use to communicate with you. Items should be placed in a clean bag and labeled with your loved one’s
name and room number. Leave the bag with the staff manning the main entrance. The bag will be delivered to the patient room. Please make sure only healthy family members bring items to the hospital.
For your comfort, the following amenities are available:
- A blanket and pillow may be provided when requested
- 24/7 Access to vending machines on some patient units and lobbies
- Cafeteria and food courts (hours may be limited to daytime hours)
- Public restrooms are available on each unit
Employees wash or sanitize their hands each time they enter and exit a patient’s room. They also wear Personal Protection Equipment (gown, gloves, face shields, or goggles) when they enter the room of a patient with an infectious
illness. Employees safely dispose of these items before going into the next patient room to keep clothing free from germs so they may safely care for other patients. Beaumont is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) guidelines and screening protocols and following infection control prevention best practices. We are also remaining in close communication with state and county public health officials to monitor the spread of the virus.
Please know that all hospitals and health systems regularly prepare for disease outbreaks, conduct regular preparedness drills, and are able to adapt quickly to infectious disease outbreaks. We are always training our staff on how to protect
patients and themselves as they care for patients.
- Stay home when you are sick (fever, cough, upper respiratory infection symptoms).
- Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, especially before eating, after coughing or sneezing, and after using the bathroom.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. The best way to cover your mouth and nose is to cough or sneeze into the elbow of your arm. Throw tissues away immediately and wash your hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
