For Patients and Visitors
It's a New Day, a New Way at San Antonio!
Keeping you safe during COVID-19 is our utmost priority. New COVID-19 procedures and visitation guidelines have been put into place to ensure the safety and well-being of all San Antonio patients, visitors, and care team members.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, no visitors are permitted in the adult inpatient units. Restricting visitation will help to protect our patients, their families, and our healthcare team. However, telephone and video calls to our patients are welcomed and encouraged.
Limited exceptions* to the no visitation policy may be approved for patients in the following areas:
- Maternity: Support person only
- Pediatrics: Parent/guardian only
- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU): Both parents only
* Please note: if a visitor is being considered due to one of the exceptions noted above, he or she will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to being approved for visitation.
We understand the concerns you may have about visiting your loved ones while they are hospitalized, but we believe restricting visitors at this time is necessary. We appreciate your understanding as we take proactive precautions to protect our patients, our healthcare team, and the communities we serve.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, all emergency patients will be screened for fever and respiratory symptoms upon arrival and given a mask. The mask and screening questions help us meet our commitment to provide a safe environment for everyone entering the emergency department.
- In support of social distancing, and to minimize the possibility of exposure, patients with mild to moderate respiratory symptoms are screened for COVID-19 symptoms a the main entrance to the ER.
- Patients with more serious illness will be given a mask, and they will be directed to check-in at the reception desk in the emergency department.
- If a bed is available, the patient will be taken directly into the treatment area.
- If a bed is not immediately available, patients with a fever and/or respiratory symptoms will be masked and placed in a separate waiting room within the treatment area.
- Patients are reminded to check-in with the triage nurse if there is a change or worsening of their symptoms.
- Patients will be seen in the order of illness severity. Be assured, the emergency department team will do everything possible to place patients into a private room in the treatment area as quickly as possible.
