COVID-19 Visitor and Patient Support Companion Policy

Updated 12-23-2021

Your health and well-being are our priority at Weiss Memorial Hospital. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we remain committed and vigilant in delivering the best possible care, while keeping our patients, staff and community safe.

Due to the steep rise in COVID cases in Chicago, visitors are not allowed at Weiss Memorial Hospital at this time except for: family training, discharge education, same day surgery or for patients receiving end of life care.

This visitor policy is in effect as of Dec. 23, 2021.

  • Patients receiving end of life care are allowed one visitor at a time and family may rotate.
  • Visitation for critically ill patients and patients at the end will be managed by discussion with the patient’s care team.
  • Approved visitors will be directed to follow infection prevention protocols and provided with face coverings/ masks to wear, as per CDC and Weiss Memorial Hospital COVID-19 protocols.

Emergency Services

  • Visitors are not allowed at this time, except for pediatric patients, who are allowed up to two parents or guardians.
  • No one under the age of 18 will be allowed as a support companion.

We recognize that support from family and friends is an important component to the healing process, and visitation restrictions may pose a hardship for our patients and families. In lieu of in-person visitation, please consider phone calls and use of FaceTime, Skype or other video apps to connect with loved ones. Our care team is glad to assist patients with hospital iPad support to receive communication.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

Here you’ll find family resources and visitor information, such as COVID-19 information, visitation hours, directions and parking information, and more to help plan your visit.
