Visiting Information

 

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. During your visit, please note the following restrictions that are designed to keep you and your family safe:

 

Face Masks

A mask covering the nose and mouth are required to be worn at all times. 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.

 

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.

 

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.
  • 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

Each person will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering the facility. Every person visiting must be free of COVID-19 symptoms, COVID-19 diagnosis and must not be waiting for COVID-19 test results.


  • Each person visiting must complete a COVID-19 screening upon each visit.
  • People screening positive will not be allowed to visit.
  • People screening negative will be given a sticker that must be worn at all times.
 


Visitation Information

To protect our patients, families, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have put guidelines into place that limit visitation until COVID-19 is no longer a threat. 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.

Staying Connected to Your Loved One

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.
 

Frequently Asked Questions

Children (<16 years) should not visit Beaumont except for end-of-life or other extreme situations where their presence has been approved. This includes patient rooms and waiting areas. For outpatient appointments, patients must arrange for childcare or reschedule the appointment as necessary.

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.

Call ahead to Beaumont’s COVID-19 hotline, 800-592-4784, or your physician’s office before attempting to get screened. If you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms, please call 911.

  • 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.

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
