With safety at the forefront, LHMC opens up to limited visitation

Lake Huron Medical Center has updated its visitation policy for non-COVID-19 patients, effective Wednesday, May 12, 2021. Our top priority remains to maintain a safe environment for our patients, families and staff. Please see the new guidelines listed below.

Lake Huron Medical Center will permit limited visitations to non-COVID-19 patients as following:

1. Visiting hours are between 1pm and 6pm daily. All visitors will be screened daily at the main entrance for symptoms of COVID-19. Visitors with a respiratory infection, including but not limited to fever, cough or shortness of breath, will not be permitted to enter the facility.

2. All visitors are required to wear a mask or other cloth face covering for the duration of their visit, non-compliant visitors will be asked to leave the facility.

3. We are restricting to one visitor at a time to minimize the risk of exposure for all. The

patient’s family will need to coordinate who will visit each day.

4. Patients in the ER may have one visitor with the exception being high-risk COVID-19 patients.

5. We strongly discourage people who are at high risk of developing severe complications from COVID-19, including older adults and those with underlying medical conditions.

6. Alternatives to in-person visits are available to all patients, including video and audio calls.

7. No visitors are allowed for COVID positive patients.

8. No visitation is allowed during aerosol-generation procedures or during collection of

respiratory specimens.

Visitation guidelines are subject to change based on updates to state guidelines regarding COVID-19 and/or the condition of the patient. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation at this time as we protect the health and safety of our patients, community and staff.
