Asante relaxes its visitor policy, but masks are still required

Asante is again allowing up to two visitors in patient rooms (except for COVID-positive inpatients) and reopening two cafeterias to nonemployees.

As pandemic restrictions ease in Oregon, Asante is responding in a way that continues to focus on employee and patient safety, while allowing small changes that will help improve our patients’ experience while hospitalized.

Beginning Thursday, July 22:

  • Asante will now allow two visitors or support persons at a time in a patient’s room. An exception to this policy is for COVID-positive inpatients, with only one visitor or support person per day allowed in alignment with CDC recommendations.
  • Visitors under the age of 18 will be permitted again; however, they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • ATRMC and ARRMC cafeterias will be open again to visitors as well as employees. AACH’s cafeteria remains closed to visitors for now.

What is not changing:

  • Masks must be worn by all persons within a health care facility (employees, visitors, contractors, volunteers, etc.).
  • Screening for COVID-19 symptoms and related concerns will take place at hospital entrances.
  • Hospital visitors will be given a sticker that identifies them as having been screened.
  • Visitors are not allowed in the Behavioral Health Unit.
  • For end-of-life situations, there is no daily restriction to the number of visitors, including for patients with COVID-19.

Additional information about entrance screening and visitation procedures can be found on myAsanteNET by searching policy 400-ACCR-QM-0022.
