Visitation Guidelines at the Hospice of Hope Inpatient Facilities
Hospice of Hope provides high quality end-of-life care to those who live in our 14-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:
- Visitors who are with positive COVID-19 patients will need to wear full PPE the entire time they are in the patient’s room. Full PPE will be provided for each visitor.
Visitors to positive COVID-19 patients will need to use the restroom in the patient’s room.
- Visitors are expected to complete the self-screening tool upon entering our inpatient facility.
- Visitors should practice social distancing and wear a mask while at our inpatient facility based on community transmission levels. Masks will be provided upon request.
- Children are permitted in our inpatient facility regardless of age.
- Hospice of Hope Staff will assist with virtual visits as needed.
- Pet visitation will be permitted. A screening form (PE075) must be completed by the handler. Pets will be free of internal and external parasites. Proof of vaccination records must
be provided upon request. Pets must be crated or leashed upon entrance to the inpatient facilities. Pets will remain in the patient’s rooms and may be uncrated or unleashed with the
door closed. Handlers will be responsible for the pet at all times. If a pet becomes a nuisance or disrupts the tranquility of the unit, they may be asked to leave.
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.
