 Ohio Valley Hospice Inpatient Unit Visitation Guidelines

Hospice of Hope is dedicated to providing high quality end-of-life care to those who live in our twelve-county service area.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our highest priority is to protect our vulnerable patient population and the staff who serve them.  After careful consideration and by following federal, state, and local guidelines, Hospice of Hope has outlined the following visitation guidelines:

  • Patients who test negative for CoVid are allowed two visitors per shift.   Patients who test positive for CoVid are allowed one visitor per shift.   Shifts are 7AM to 7PM and 7PM to 7AM.  These visitors are not interchangeable.   Visitors will be permitted to enter the unit between the hours of 6:30AM-7:30AM, 10:00AM-11:00AM, 1:00PM-4:00PM, 6:30PM-7:30PM, and 10:00PM-5:00AM.  Visitors can stay at the unit longer than these hours but will only be admitted during these time frames.  Visitors are to enter through the main hospital entrance from 7:00 AM and 6:30 PM.  Visitors are to enter through the ER entrance from 6:30PM to 7:00AM. 
  • Each visitor will be met at the hospital entrance to complete a COVID-19 screening.  After passing the initial screening, a temperature will be obtained. If a visitor fails the screening and/or has a fever greater than 99.9 degrees, the visitor will not be allowed to continue to the unit. Once the visitor passes the initial screening, they will be permitted to enter the unit where a Hospice of Hope employee will complete a new screening.  If the visitor passes the second screening, they should go directly to the patient room.
  • Visitors who reside in a state listed on the KDPH and/or ODPH travel advisory list will not be granted visitation. 
  • No visitors under the age of 18 will be granted visitation. 
  • Visitors should practice social distancing and wear a cloth mask the entire time that they are at the unit.  If a visitor does not have a mask, a cloth mask may be provided to you. 
  • Visitors are not allowed to congregate in common areas.  This includes the nurses’ station.
  • Visitors will not be allowed to re-enter the facility if they leave the Hospice of Hope unit and/or Adams County Regional Medical Center Campus until the next shift and admission time frame.
  • Outside food and drinks are not permitted in the unit. 
  • Flower delivery service is permitted to our unit.
  • Hospice of Hope Staff will assist with virtual visits as needed. 
  • Visitation guidelines do not change if death becomes imminent, patient is actively dying, at the time of death or after the time of death.  
  • There will be no exceptions to the policy. 

Hospice of Hope appreciates your understanding and your help maintaining the COVID-19 precautions for the safety of your loved one, our hospice patients, families, and our staff.   Please ask to speak with a Hospice of Hope staff member if you have any questions or concerns.
