Pioneers is a patient and family-centered organization. Under normal circumstances, we welcome patients and visitors. We understand the value of in-person visits for our patients and residents.
COVID-19 has placed us in a difficult position. As a healthcare organization, we put our patients and their safety first. We do everything we can to prevent the spread of this virus. Protecting our patients, staff and visitors is our top priority; therefore, anyone entering the building is asked to wear a mask. We have updated our visitor policy to limit visitors entering the building with the following exceptions:
ALL visitors are required to complete the entrance health screening and those who have symptoms of a respiratory infections (i.e., fever, runny nose, cough, shortness of breath, etc.) are not allowed to enter the facility.
ALL visitors are required to wear a mask while visiting PMC. Visitors are encouraged to wear their own personal mask. If a visitor does not have a mask, a cloth mask will be provided. The visitor is asked to deposit the mask in the laundry bin upon exit.
Visitors must stay in the patient’s room for the entirety of their visit.
Children under the age of 18 will not be allowed except under extraordinary circumstances.
The visitation depends on the county two week positivity rate, so it is fluid. >10% means no visitation.
If PMC is having an outbreak, no visits.
