Temporary Visitor Policies During COVID-19

To keep our patients and hospital staff safe and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, Grand Island Regional Medical Center has established visitor restrictions during this time.

Visitor access to the facility is limited to the front door, which is located on the west side of the facility. There will be signage at all entries reminding visitors of that access point.

All visitors will be screened for COVID-19 upon entry. Visitors who do not pass the screening are not permitted to enter the facility. Visitors who pass the screening will be expected to adhere to the following:

  • Visitors are limited to one designated family member or representative only for non-COVID patients. This means only one family member/representative may be designated for the entire length of the hospital stay. The designated family member/representative may not change during the duration of the patient’s hospitalization.
  • Visitors who pass the screening must wear a cloth face covering or face mask as well as a visitor badge while in the facility for the duration of their visit.
  • Visitors must remain in the area(s) consistent with their purpose for being in the facility, and not go to other areas of the facility. No visitors are allowed in COVID-19 care areas.
  • Visitors are to leave the facility immediately upon conclusion of the visit.
  • Visitation to vulnerable patient populations (e.g. immunocompromised, elderly with underlying medical conditions, etc.) are allowed only for medically necessary or care purposes.

Patients with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 may not receive visitors. Exceptions can be made for special circumstances (e.g., end-of-life situations or where visitation is necessary for the patient’s emotional well-being and care), and requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

We appreciate your cooperation. For specific requests or questions, please call (308) 675-5000.
