Cheyenne Regional Medical Center “No Visitors” Policy (Effective November 1, 2020, at 7 p.m. )
Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is reinstating the hospital’s “no visitors” policy. Specifics of the policy apply to all CRMC campuses, the medical office building attached to CRMC and all the hospital’s affiliated medical clinics.
No visitors are allowed except in the following instances. In those instances, visiting hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.:
- Maternity: One designated visitor for duration of patient’s stay.
- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: Two parents or guardians are permitted per 24-hour period.
- Pediatric patients (under the age of 18): Two parents or guardians can be designated, but only one parent or
guardian can visit at a time per 24-hour period.
- Special-needs patients (with a medical or behavioral disability): One caregiver is allowed per 24-hour period.
- End-of-life patients: Two visitors are allowed.
- Outpatient procedures: If necessary, one person is allowed to accompany a patient for support.
- No visitors under the age of 16 are allowed. (If a patient comes to the emergency department with a minor
child, the child will be allowed to remain with the patient if there is no other family member present to care
for the child.)
- Visitors are required to provide their own face covering and must wear it for their entire visit, including in patient rooms and in all common areas.
- Visitors must practice proper hand hygiene by washing with soap and water or using hand sanitizer.
- Upon entry, visitors will be screened for travel history, temperature, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat and exposure to COVID-19.
- Visitors should enter and exit through the designated patient and visitor entrance/exit door. (Main Hospital: located in the south parking garage on the corner of 23rd St. and House Ave. East Campus: located at the
main entry on the south side of the building.)
- No one who is COVID-19 positive, being tested for COVID-19 or is symptomatic will be allowed to visit.
As of October 30, 2020, CRMC was caring for a total of 29 COVID-positive patients (22 COVID-positive patients on its COVID-19 designated treatment unit and another seven critically ill COVID-positive patients in its intensive care unit).
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, follow the public health safety guidelines:
- Stay home when you are sick (even if you just feel “a little sick”).
- Wear a face covering when you are inside any public place or can’t maintain a social distance of at least six feet.
- Maintain a social distance of at least six feet from others who are not part of your immediate household.
- Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face.
- Avoid gatherings of people from outside your immediate household.
- Get a flu shot.
