VH implements Level Yellow visitation

In an email from Valley Health (VH) Public Relations Manager Carol Weare it was announced that visitation to VH Hospitals has gone from level red to level yellow as of today Mon. Mar. 14.

This is due largely to the recent decrease in COVID-19 cases and admissions.

Two of a patient’s care partners can now stay at the bedside of adults in surgical or critical care units.

The exception is when a patient is confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19 then only one care partner is allowed.

In labor or delivery units a third person is allowed for a baby’s delivery.

All care partners must be at least 18 years of age and designated by the patient.

All care partners must also follow all VH health and safety guidelines.

A complete definition of Level Yellow status is found at valleyhealthlink.com.

covid-19 vaccine arrival

A news release email from Valley Health (VH) announces new visitation guidelines.

VH will implement a three tiered visitation policy across all its health system starting Mon. Nov. 22.

A red, yellow and green system will be based on a low, medium or high risk of exposure to COVID-19 and influenza for patients and caregivers.

The guidelines are built around a designated care partner, family or friend over 18 years of age.

That care partner is chosen by the patient to be an active part of their care team.

The new visitation guidelines are available and explained at valleyhealthlink.com.
