McLeod Health Cheraw restricts visitation
Effective today, McLeod Health Cheraw will continue restrictive visitation in the hospital.
However, patients undergoing elective surgeries are allowed to have ONE designated visitor over the age of 18 for the duration of their hospital stay.
This one visitor will be required to wear a face mask and visitor-issued armband/ID at all times while at the facility.
Any visitors exhibiting signs or symptoms of illness will be asked not to visit patients.
The NO visitation policy is still in effect for COVID-19 positive patients or COVID-19 rule-out patients under any circumstances.
An exception to the visitation restrictions remains in place for end-of-life patients. In these cases, the attending physician or nursing supervisor can permit additional visitors to see the patient.
The Universal Masking policy for McLeod Health, effective since May 7, 2020, also requires all physicians, employees, visitors, and incoming patients arriving for care, testing or moving throughout the facility to wear a mask (cloth) while on a McLeod Health campus or in a physician office.
