VISITATION POLICY UPDATE:

As you know, your safety and care is our top priority. We are watching the COVID-19 evolution carefully and we can assure you that you will receive the same excellent care we always provide throughout this situation. However, we may also have to adjust some of our normal operations to address issues as they arise.

While we believe in family presence and respect the value of having your family with you during your care process, we have had to make the difficult decision to make some modifications to our visitation policy. Please see below for the visitation policy which will be in effect as of 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday March 24, 2020.

  • No visitation for our adult population

  • No visitors under the age of 18

  • No visitors who are ill, have traveled via air in the last 7 days or have been exposed to COVID- 19

  • Limited exceptions will be made, this includes:

    • Pediatric and NICU patients may have one parent/guardian present who will stay at the bedside for the duration of the visit

    • OB patients may have their partner present who must stay at the bedside for the duration of the visit

  • All visitors will be required to produce a photo ID and an individualized pass will be issued at the point of entry which must be worn at all times

  • Support person(s) must be constant throughout the course of the hospital stay

We recognize that this is difficult news to hear and we apologize that the situation has required that we take these steps. However, as we stated, your safety is our number one priority at all times. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we are all working together to maintain the safe, compassionate and world-class organization Tampa General Hospital is committed to being.  Please know that we stand beside you in your healthcare journey and are here to support you.
