Covid-19 Policy

COVID-19 VISITOR POLICY FOR INPATIENT REHABILITATION

Our primary concern during the current COVID-19 pandemic is for the care and well-being of our patients. By extension, we must also prioritize the well-being of our staff so that they can continue to provide the excellent care you expect from MRC.

Therefore, we are instituting a temporary set of policies during the pandemic. Effective immediately until further notice, we will take the following steps regarding visitors coming to see patients at MRC.

  1. The family of the patient will designate two family members as the primary caregivers.
  2. One caregiver at a time will be allowed to visit the patient.
  3. These persons will participate in family training for care of the patient post discharge.
  4. Once approved, the primary caregivers will be allowed access to the hospital through the first floor entrance and will need to register with security.

We appreciate your understanding and patience during this unprecedented time.
