In response to the novel coronavirus COVID-19 global pandemic, St. Clair Hospital in Mt. Lebanon has announced immediate new restrictions on patient visitation.
The revised policy, intended to protect patients, families and employees, will continue until further notice.
For most areas of the hospital, visitation hours are restricted to two periods of two hours each, and patients in those areas of the hospital are limited to one visitor per visitation period. In certain circumstances, limited exceptions will apply.
Patients in the family birth, pediatric and psychiatric units are permitted to have up to two visitors during visiting hours, which are defined on a unit-specific basis. Visitors will be screened when entering the Hospital, and they must wash their hands upon entering and exiting both the patient’s room and the hospital.
Visitors also must wear a hospital-issued identification badge.
Family and friends are asked to refrain from visiting patients if they are experiencing any symptoms of illness themselves, such as fever, cough or sore throat. No visitors under age 18 will be permitted.
