2 Manatee County medical centers suspend visits from Tuesday


MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) – Two medical centers in Manatee County are suspending visits from Tuesday, August 3.

The nursing units and emergency room at Manatee Memorial Hospital will not allow patient visits until further notice. This is due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the county and statewide.

The limited exceptions to the no-visitor policy include:

  • Patients who have certain extraordinary circumstances, such as end-of-life care
  • Patients in the Labor and Delivery Unit and the Mother-Baby Unit may have a support person
  • Patients in the neonatal intensive care unit can only receive one visitor per day
  • Surgery, Intervention and Therapy patients may each have a support person, but that support person must remain in the designated waiting room.

The nursing units at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center will also not allow patient visits.

The limited exceptions to this no-visitor policy include:

  • Patients who have certain extraordinary circumstances, such as end-of-life care
  • Emergency room patients may have a support person
  • Patients at the Women’s Center / Labor and Delivery Unit may have a support person
  • Patients in the surgery, intervention and therapy departments may each be accompanied by a support person in the preoperative waiting room until the patient is called to the preoperative area. Once the patient is called back for their procedure, the designated support person must leave the hospital and wait outside the site during the surgery.

In addition, a reminder that anyone entering each medical center must use antibacterial foam, wear a mask when entering and keep the mask at all times in the hospital.
