Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center will resume inpatient visitation on a limited basis beginning Monday.
Visiting hours on most acute care units will be from 12 noon to 4 p.m. daily. Behavioral Health unit visiting hours will be from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The suspension of all visitation at Schoellkopf Health Center will remain in effect.
Patients will be allowed one visitor at time. All visitors will be screened and have their temperatures taken upon entering the medical center. A mask or other face covering, maintaining social distancing and rigorous hand hygiene all will be required.
Medical center employees and providers will continue to take all available precautionary measures to protect the safety of patients, staff and visitors.
Hospital visitation at Memorial and across New York had been suspended since mid-March to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday that visitors will again be permitted at hospitals and group homes but not nursing homes as the state continues to see a reduced level of new COVID-19 cases.
