Visitor Guidelines for Coronavirus
Los Alamitos Medical Center is expanding our visitation hours effective May 3rd. This change will be implemented with a focus on maintaining the health of our patients and caregivers. Precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be done in accordance with California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
Effective May 3, 2021, we are pleased to allow (1) visitor at a time between the hours of 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM.
- Visitors will be asked to refrain from entering the hospital if they have any of the following risk factors: fever (temperature over 100°F), COVID-19 signs and symptoms, recent COVID-19 infection, or exposure to a COVID-positive person within the last 14 days.
- All visitors must comply with our universal source control measures of hand hygiene, masking (with a hospital-provided mask), and social distancing (6ft from other visitors, patients and healthcare providers).
- Visitors must go directly to and from the patient’s room. They may not wander in hallways or lounge in common areas.
Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit
Entry and exit is now limited to the emergency room only.
An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
