North Florida Regional Medical Center (NFRMC) is taking proactive measures to help ensure the health and safety of patients, caregivers, colleagues and our communities. Adjusted visitor access and screening are tools that we have implemented to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
There will be no visitors permitted in the hospital at this time. Exceptions will be made for the following circumstances with one visitor per patient:
- Parent/guardian of a pediatric or neonatal patient
- Birthing or care partner of a maternity patient
- A patient undergoing surgery and /or testing
- Hospice or palliative care patients
- Emergency room patients
For those who are permitted to enter the hospital under these exceptions, they must be screened and wear a mask at all times while in the hospital. While in NFRMC, all are asked to help us maintain social distancing standards and should remain in the patient's room as much as possible during their entire visit.
Visitation hours are from 5:30am - 8:00pm. Any potential visitors who show signs of respiratory illness or have a fever will not be permitted in the hospital, and will be offered to go to the Emergency Room for treatment- which is open 24/7.
If a patient in the hospital needs to obtain an item from a loved one that is unable to visit, their loved one can come to our main entrance and provide the patient's name and room number. Once we confirm with the patient, we will deliver the item to the patient within the hour. We are limiting these items to necessities such as phones, iPads, etc. We are unable to deliver food to patients at this time.
We appreciate the cooperation of our visitors, patients, colleagues and providers to support our infection control efforts and help minimize the spread of respiratory infections and COVID-19. We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and the CDC updates its guidance and will provide updates as needed.
We exist to provide others a healthier tomorrow. Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
