Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center is adjusting visitation beginning Wednesday, August 2nd. This guideline change welcomes care partners and support persons in all areas 24/7, with the exception in Behavioral Health and Clatanoff. Please see below for visitation in specific areas such as Surgical Services, Labor and Delivery, Mother Baby, Pediatrics, Emergency Department and Outpatient Practices. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
With the LHAAMC visitor management system at the North and South pavilion desks, all care partners and support persons will be asked to provide a government issued ID. This system expedites the check-in process and enhances our hospital security. It replaces handwritten passes with clear and easy-to-read printed passes. Care partners and support persons without IDs will still receive a visitor’s pass and will be permitted to visit their loved ones as we understand how important care partners and support persons are to the patient’s healing.
Caring for and protecting our patients, families, employees, and the community is of the utmost importance. Luminis Health is taking steps to shift to an endemic recovery response to the pandemic. With high vaccination rates and the reduction in community transmission, Luminis Health has updated its masking guidance per the updated CDC recommendations. Universal masking is no longer required in any Luminis Health facility. Luminis Health has shifted to optional masking for all staff, patients, and visitors. All care partners and support persons will be required to wash or sanitize their hands throughout their visit.
Patients and visitors who prefer to wear a mask while in our facility may do so. Patients may also request that their care team wear masks.
As a patient- and family-centered organization, we will continue to review and update our visitation guidelines and practices as the situation changes.
