Coshocton Regional Medical Center Updates Visitor Restrictions

Coshocton Regional Medical Center Updates Visitor Restrictions

03-23-2020

Effectively March 24, 2020, Coshocton Regional Medical Center will be implementing the following visitation restrictions and precautions in an effort to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients, staff and our community.

Visitation restrictions at Coshocton Regional Medical Center have been changed to no visitors allowed. Exceptions will be made for patients at the end of life, patients under the age of 18 and disabled patients.

Coshocton Regional Medical Center is also postponing all elective surgeries following an order from the Ohio Department of Health. By postponing surgical procedures, hospitals can reduce the risk to patients and providers, conserve critically short supplies of personal protection equipment and preserve inpatient beds and equipment. Critical surgeries, such as those saving a patient’s life, preserving the function of organs or limbs, reducing metastasis or progression of a disease or reducing severe symptoms will continue.

If you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, you are encouraged to call our Nurse Hotline at (740) 623-4019. A separate outpatient Respiratory Screening Center has been set up at 406 South 15th Street for those who feel they have symptoms of COVID-19. Hours are 10am-8pm; 7 days a week (hours subject to change). The Emergency Department should only be utilized for emergency visits. Individuals that do not exhibit COVID-19 symptoms and do not meet criteria will not be automatically tested for COVID-19.

Coshocton Regional Medical Center remains committed to the continuing good health of our community and is currently focused on both the containment and mitigation of COVID-19. For updated information, please visit our website at coshoctonhosital.org or our Facebook page.
