MMC COVID-19 Visitor Guidelines

Minden Medical Center Visitor Guidelines

Effective March 18, 2021:

Minden Medical Center has lifter its visitor restrictions and will no longer be limiting patients to one visitor per day. Visitors will still be screened upon entrance to the facility and will have their temperature checked. ALL visitors must adhere to hospital guidelines and must wear a mask. Visitors are allowed to spend the night with their patient if they choose to do so.  However, as is usual practice our front doors will lock at 9:00 p.m. and will not reopen until 7:00 a.m. the next morning. Visitor should remain in the patient’s room as much as possible. Visitors will be encouraged to participate in Bedside Shift Report with the patient and nurses to be knowledgeable of the plan of care for the patient.

Please note: Visitor guidelines may vary for each department and patient based on recommendations of doctors and nurses, and COVID-19 positive patients and patients waiting on COVID-19 test results will still have visitor restrictions.

We are looking forward to welcoming visitors and hope this latest update to our visitor policy at Minden Medical Center ensures peace of mind for loved ones and brings a source of comfort to our patients.
