Beginning Friday, September 11, 2020, patients will be allowed one visitor at a time, per patient to accompany them while in a CHRISTUS Southeast Texas facility. This could include surgical or procedural patients, those coming for lab work or imaging needs such as CTs or MRIs or X-rays, emergency visits or other health care needs.
All visitors should be prepared to go through a screening process upon entering our facilities. In addition, visitors should bring their own face mask and wear it all times while inside our facilities. Visitors will also be expected to practice appropriate social distancing, especially in common areas like waiting rooms and lobbies. These guidelines help us to maintain safe environments for our patients, visitors and Associates.
We thank our communities for their understanding and cooperation during the course of these visitor policy changes.
The health and safety of our patients, visitors, Associates and our communities remain of utmost importance. Beginning Monday, April 6, patients and visitors will be required to bring their own mask to wear while in our hospitals or outpatient clinics. You can learn more about how to make your own cloth masks by visiting the CDC website. Our health professionals providing care for presumed COVID-19 or known COVID-19 patients are expected to wear N95 respirator masks. Hospitalized patients do not have to wear a mask while in their rooms.
