Upon arrival at our facility, you will be asked standard screening questions and be provided with a cloth mask, if you do not have one. If you have an appropriate mask (without vents) or bandana that covers your mouth and nose, you may wear it.
MedStar Health has a modified visitor policy
which limits most visitors. Anyone accompanying you or serving as a designated contact person, such as a family member, loved one, or caregiver, will not be permitted to enter the facility with you when you arrive (exceptions are outlined in the detailed policy). We will gather the person’s contact information for follow up and updates about your care. We will also provide instructions for pick up.
While you are here for a procedure, you may see no other patients, and for now, that is intentional. We are currently minimizing overlap in scheduling to better promote physical distancing, conserve resources, and protect patients and our team members.
Our care team will be wearing protective equipment, so you may not see their entire face. We do regret this, as the personal connections we have with our patients and community are personally and professional fulfilling for us. However, this important precaution will protect you and our clinical staff.
