End-of-life visitation guidelines

COVID-19-related visitor restrictions are in effect in all BJC facilities to comply with local public health orders and to protect vulnerable patients and health care workers. These restrictions remain in place, but the policy for end-of-life visitation for COVID-19-positive patients has been updated. The ability to enable loved ones or clergy to support our patients through this difficult transition is a privilege, and we should facilitate these visits whenever they can be safely accommodated. For the safety of visitors, staff and our community, please follow the End of Life Visitation Guidelines.
