CarePoint Health, which operates Hoboken University Medical Center, Christ Hospital, and Bayonne Medical Center updated its restrictions on visitations as the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve.
All three hospitals are currently not allowing any visitors including to the Transitional Care Units and Rehabilitation Departments.
Visitation exceptions will be made in certain situations, including one visitor permitted in Pediatric Care, Maternity/Labor & Delivery, Ambulatory Care/ Same Day Surgery, and End of Life and Hospice.
“We take these proactive precautions to protect our patients, team members, and our community,” said CarePoint Health in a statement. “We are sensitive to the separation this restriction causes our patients and their loved ones, but we believe this measure of protection is essential at this time to keep people safe. Phone and video calls to patients are encouraged as a means of communication with your loved ones.”
