he Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital Incident Management Team is restricting
visitors due to the increase of COVID-19 statewide and evidence of community
spread in Ravalli County, effective July 1.
“Our number one priority continues to be maintaining a safe environment
for our staff and patients,” said a Hospital Incident Management
Team press release on Wednesday. “We recognize that patient caregivers
and family support are an essential part of the healing process; therefore
certain accommodations in this policy address specific patient needs while
limiting the number of people accessing our facilities.”
The team will continue to make adjustments to keep a safe environment as
the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve.
The MDMH Temporary Restricted Visitor Policy is allowing one visitor/support
person per patient at a time for Inpatient, Outpatient, Clinics and ER;
for patients receiving outpatient maternity care, partners and children
are allowed; for children receiving care, parents, guardians, or powers
of attorney are allowed. There are special precautions for visitors of
high-risk patients, and exceptions will be approved by the care team.
