Yale-New Haven Hospital Launches No Visitation Policy to Hospitalized Patients
Here we go again, Yale-New Haven Hospital has shut down visitation privileges due to a spike in COVID-19 cases, according to an article on the WFSB-TV website.
Imagine not being able to hold your grandma's hand or talk with her as she lies in a hospital bed. So why is that? Some say the coronavirus is just a hoax, and some say their rights are being violated by being told to wear a mask and not gather in groups. Some say, "if you wore your damn mask and followed the CDC guidelines, maybe, just maybe, your grandma wouldn't be lying in a lonely hospital bed where no one is allowed to visit."
Some exceptions can be made for maternity patients, children who are patients, patients with disabilities, and patients from whom end-of-life is imminent. Visitors who are sick will not be allowed to enter the hospital, no exceptions.
What about the visitation policy at Danbury Hospital? Visitors will be allowed to visit patients that meet specific conditions. They must be 18 and older and arrive wearing a medical face mask, which means NO bandanas or scarves. There are several guidelines and requirements before you're able to visit a patient at Danbury Hospital and you can read them all at westernconnecticuthealthnetwork.org,
