For Our Patients and Visitors

Visitors Policy

The situation surrounding COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) continues to evolve and changes occur rapidly. As a result, Pascack Valley Medical Center has restricted visitation at the hospital as of 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 13, 2020.

This visitation restriction is being done out of an abundance of caution. The health and safety of our patients, their families, and team members remain a top priority for Pascack Valley Medical Center. Pascack Valley Medical Center routinely restricts visitation by any visitors who are ill in order to maintain the health of our patients.

Visitation exceptions will be made in certain situations, including:

  • Hospice
  • Pediatric care
  • Ambulatory Care and Same day surgery (one visitor)
  • Maternity/Labor and delivery (one visitor)
  • Special situations evaluated on a case-by-case basis

 

Phone and video calls to patients are welcome and encouraged.

COVID-19 Visitor Policy

At Pascack Valley Medical Center, you and your loved ones are our first priority. We feel that it is important to provide you with the information you need when you need it. Whether you are researching our services, physicians, or preparing for a procedure, we want to make sure you play an active role in your care.

Families are also essential to the patient’s care team. With our patient- and family-centered care approach, we encourage families to stay with their loved ones, based on permission from the patients.

It’s just one way that our family cares for yours.
