Visitor Restrictions Reinstated at Nacogdoches Medical Center

January 11, 2021 - Monday, Jan. 11, Nacogdoches Medical Center is reinstating a restricted visitor policy. This policy is being reestablished out of an abundance of caution as the COVID-19 surge continues to impact hospitalizations in Nacogdoches and surrounding communities.
Some exceptions to the rule apply. These are as follows:
• Pediatric and Women’s Services may have one designated support person during their stay.
• NICU inpatients may have two ID banded parents.
• End of life patients may have visitation exceptions on a case-by-case basis.
• Special consideration may occur for those whose presence provides critical assistance and are essential to maintaining the patient’s safety.
• No minors under the age of 16 will be allowed. Children of antepartum patients will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
• There will be no visitation allowed for a patient in a COVID patient care area.
As patients and visitors enter the hospital they will be screened for COVID-19 exposure and symptoms, including fever or respiratory symptoms. If visitors are found to have symptoms the hospital will not allow them to visit. We  are committed  to  keeping our patients, our staff and our community safe.
