Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center is adjusting visitation beginning Tuesday, March 28th. This guideline change welcomes more care partners and support persons in our pediatric areas. Visiting hours are 9 am through 9 pm for inpatient units. Please see below for visitation in specific areas such as Surgical Services, Labor and Delivery, Mother Baby, Pediatrics, Emergency Department and Outpatient Practices.
In the coming weeks, LHAAMC will implement a new 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 new system will expedite the check-in process and enhance 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.
Starting Monday February 6th, the ICU waiting room will undergo construction for three (3) months. During this time, care partners may be asked to go to the waiting area in the north pavilion lobby if space does not allow for care partners to remain in the ICU.
Luminis Health requires care partners and support persons to wear a procedural mask when visiting our facilities. If you do not have a procedural mask, we will provide one for you. Cloth masks are no longer accepted as they provide a lower level of protection than the procedural mask.
Caring for and protecting our patients, families, employees, and the community during COVID-19 is of the utmost importance. All care partners and support persons will be required to wear an appropriate mask while in the hospital (even if vaccinated) and will be required to wash or sanitize their hands throughout their visit. Eating is permitted in patient rooms but not permitted in patient care areas or waiting areas.
As a patient- and family-centered organization, we will continue to review and update our visitation guidelines and practices as the situation changes.
