CORPUS CHRISTI - To ensure the health and safety of its patients, families, employees, physicians and community, Driscoll Children's Hospital has updated its visitation policy for both hospital and clinic patients.
Effective immediately, only one (1) adult primary caregiver will be allowed per patient. We prefer to have the same primary caregiver for the duration of your child's hospital stay. Other visitors, including siblings, are not allowed to visit.
We recognize these updated visitor restrictions may be inconvenient; however, it is done because we want to keep you healthy.
If during your child's hospitalization you develop symptoms of a respiratory infection (cough, fever, shortness of breath) contact your child's nurse immediately.
If during your child's hospitalization you have contact with a person that is Covid-19 positive or a Person Under Investigation (PUI) for Covid-19 contact your child's nurse immediately.
If you have been given a white band during the screening process you will be restricted to your child's room.
We will work with you to provide necessary accommodations to include meal delivery. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we continue to work to enhance an environment that keeps us all safe.
Please contact the Patient Relations Department if you have any questions or concerns at (361) 694-4035.
