In accordance with guidelines established by the Iowa Department of Public Health, and until further notice, please be advised of the visitor restrictions at CCMH:
- All patients, whether in the hospital, or in any other area of the hospital (i.e. clinics, specialty clinic, lab, PT, radiology, etc.) will be allowed one support person to accompany or visit them during their stay at CCMH.
- The support person must be over the age of 18.
- Patients will not be allowed to bring children with them to their appointments.
- All other visitors will be asked to remain in their vehicles.
- Patients in the hospital with a respiratory illness at CCMH will not be allowed visitors.
To protect the health of the patients and families we serve, Crawford County Memorial Hospital is implementing visitor restrictions at all our inpatient and outpatient centers, effective immediately. The health risks from cold and flu remains high, so limiting visitors to our hospitalized patients – as well as those who accompany outpatients to clinics and procedure visits – will keep patients safe while in our care. These restrictions will also serve as a preventive measure for COVID-19.
All visitors must be healthy. No one will be permitted to visit who exhibits signs or symptoms of an influenza-like illness, which includes a fever greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, cough, and/or sore throat. Visitors with certain other symptoms, such as runny nose, shortness of breath, fatigue, chills, vomiting, or diarrhea should also postpone their visits. We apologize for any inconvenience.
