Updated Driscoll visitation policy

CORPUS CHRISTI  – Out of an abundance of caution and to ensure the health and safety of our patients, families, employees, volunteers, physicians and community, Driscoll Children’s Hospital has updated its visitation policy for both its hospital and clinic patients.

Effective immediately, only two adult primary caregivers will be allowed per patient. Other visitors, including siblings, are not allowed to visit. Driscoll prefers to have the same two adult primary caregivers for the duration of a child’s hospital stay.

Anyone entering the Emergency Department, main hospital entrance at the Welcome Center or clinics will be asked a series of screening questions. If anyone screens “at risk,” they will be required to wear a mask at all times while on the Driscoll Children’s Hospital campus, and may have restricted access. If a visitor is ill they will be asked to leave the hospital campus.

Driscoll recognizes these updated visitor restrictions may be inconvenient; however, it is done because we want to keep everyone healthy.

 Driscoll appreciates your understanding and cooperation as we continue to work to enhance an environment that keeps us all safe.
