Scheduling & Visitor RestrictionsWe will be rescheduling some patient appointments and procedures in an effort to protect our patients and staff. Conserving personal protective equipment helps us prioritize the needs of those who may require immediate care. Adjustments to scheduled procedures and appointments will be made as requested by the physician, patient or as required by official local or national public health authorities. We will contact you directly if your appointment or procedure is postponed until a later date. During this time, all Desert Care Network facilities will remain open to care for patients who require in-person visits and time-sensitive care. Thank you for understanding our need to take these measures for the safety of all.
Understanding Our No Visitor Policy
Out of an abundance of caution, we have instituted a no-visitor policy at Desert Care Network hospitals during the coronavirus public emergency. We thank you for understanding the need for this policy in order to best ensure the safety of our patients and our staff during this public health emergency, which was declared by the County of Riverside and the federal government.
We know there are situations that may require an exception to this no-visitor policy. Please discuss your needs with the nurse. Any visitor must be free of symptoms of cough, cold or fever and no children will be allowed. This will help us minimize potential contamination.
For Labor & Delivery areas of the hospital, patients will be limited to one designated visitor, who must remain the same during the course of the patient’s stay. No minors under the age of 16 will be considered. NICU and Pediatrics areas will allow two visitors, who must remain the same during the course of the patient’s stay. Designated visitors must remain symptom free of illness in order to be admitted for visitation. And, please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of our care team or a clinical manager who can help address your questions or concerns.
We are committed to keeping our patients, our staff and our community safe. Thank you for choosing Desert Regional Medical Center. It is our pleasure to serve you.
Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit
Entry and exit is now limited to the main lobby and 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.
