Geisinger loosens visitation policy for hospitalized adult patients

Member Press Release

DANVILLE, Pa. – With the decrease in COVID case counts, Geisinger has removed the limit on the number of total visitors a hospitalized adult patient can have. However, only two may visit at a time. Emergency room patients may also have two visitors for the duration of their stay.

 

Patients having a baby as well as patients under age 18 are allowed a total of four designated visitors with only two visiting at a time. The visitor must be designated and wear a wristband the entire time the patient is hospitalized.

 

Visiting hours for adult inpatients are between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Patients having a baby or pediatric patients may have visitors 24/7. All patients and visitors must wear a mask when on Geisinger property, regardless of vaccination status.
