Roger Williams Medical Center and Our Lady of Fatima Hospital will initiate a no visitor policy effective Thursday, March 12 at 10am.
“In an effort to further protect our patients and staff and limit potential exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we will suspend all visitors to our hospitals for the immediate future. While we understand that this may be difficult for some patients and families, it is the safe and responsible decision at this time,” said Jeffrey Liebman, CEO of CharterCARE.
All patients, including those arriving for outpatient procedures, are directed to access both hospitals via the Emergency Department entrances. Staff will be present to meet and screen all individuals and direct them to the appropriate destination.
