Visiting Guidelines For Our Hospice Houses Or Inpatient Care Centers Related To The Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Visiting Guidelines for our Hospice Houses or Inpatient Care Centers Related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The following guidelines apply to all visiting our Hospice Houses, and in some cases, our inpatient care centers located around the state. For our inpatient care centers located in hospitals, we will defer to the rules and guidelines in place at these locations. These guidelines may change without prior notice.

The mission of Ohio’s Hospice is to celebrate the lives of those we have the privilege of serving by providing superior care and superior services to each patient and family. We are working to do our part to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the well-being of our visitors, patients and staff. After careful consideration of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, we have implemented an updated visitor policy and guidelines to protect our patients, families, volunteers and staff.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Visiting Guidelines

  • Upon arrival to a Hospice House or inpatient care center, all visitors and guests will be asked to sign in on our sign-in sheet. You will be asked to print your name, and specify the reason for visiting.
  • Anyone visiting a Hospice House or inpatient care center must wear a face mask during their visit. 
  • Visitors will be screened for symptoms and travel or exposure history. Those who meet the established criteria will be given the patient’s room number and a “visitor badge,” which indicates you have permission to be in the building/unit and have been screened. A visitor must have a valid badge.
  • We are currently limiting the number of visitors for patients. These guidelines may be amended or changed at any time based on guidance by public health officials.
