Patient and Visitor Safety
Due to the rapid rise of COVID-19 in the community and within Stamford Health, we are temporarily suspending visitation at Stamford Hospital and at all Stamford Health outpatient, procedural and ambulatory facilities. This includes all Stamford Health Medical Group offices as well. Exceptions* are as follows:
- Labor & Delivery and Maternity (Mother/Baby Unit) patients are allowed 1 designated support visitor, regardless of vaccination status, 24/7.
- Pediatric and NICU patients are allowed 2 parent or guardian visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
- *Additional exceptions to this policy may be granted on a case-by-case basis. Some examples of circumstances that warrant exceptions would include patients who are actively approaching the end of life and patients with a disability requiring assistance from a support person or family member.
Please note, all visitors who are granted exceptions per above:
- Must wear a mask throughout their visit and this will be strictly enforced with no exceptions. Any visitor found not wearing a mask will be asked to leave.
- Must enter through the Stamford Hospital Bennett Medical Center campus or the Medical Office Building.
- Will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 in accordance with CDC guidelines.
Feel confident and comfortable in all Stamford Health facilities because we are taking steps to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
Stamford Health continues to:
- Require masks in all facilities
- Follow standard and robust infection prevention measures
- Monitor patients and staff for symptoms
- Mandate COVID-19 vaccination action for all employees
- Urge staff to stay home if they are not feeling well
