NO VISITORS ALLOWED at Northfield Hospital + Clinics
MARCH 20, 2020 – Northfield Hospital + Clinics no longer allows visitors at Northfield Hospital or any NH+C facility at this time.
NO VISITORS are permitted in any NH+C facility.
This replaces visitor restrictions put in place on March 19 to protect patients and staff from possible exposure to COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Women giving birth in the Birth Center may have ONE support person who is over 18 and symptom-free. Women may choose their partner or a doula. (A doula is not considered part of the medical team.) If the parent of the child being born is under 18, that parent may attend the delivery. Must be symptom-free.
Compassionate exemptions will be allowed; this is decided case-by-case by the care team. The care team will contact you if this is appropriate.
All clinic appointments for adult patients are restricted to the patient ONLY. Pediatric clinic appointments are restricted to only one parent/caregiver and no siblings.
These restrictions are in place to protect the health of patients and staff.
This affects all areas of Northfield Hospital, including Medical/Surgical floor, Cancer Care & Infusion Center, Surgery Center, Emergency Department, Imaging, and the Birth Center.
This affects all clinics including primary care clinics, Rehabilitation Services, and specialty care clinics.
NO VISITORS restriction includes ambulances: No one is permitted to ride with the patient in an ambulance. This is intended to prevent exposure of EMS crew and the ambulance itself to coronavirus, and not strand visitors at the hospital, where visitors are not allowed.
