Eisenhower Health continues to prioritize the safety of our patients, staff, physicians, volunteers and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This week, Eisenhower will institute a new visitor policy in keeping with California Department of Public Health (CDPH) requirements. Effective Wednesday, August 11, visitors at the hospital will be required to show proof of completed vaccination for COVID-19 or proof of a negative COVID-19 test (taken within 72 hours of coming to the hospital) for those who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated.
Visitors (adults and children) will be asked for official documentation upon arrival at the hospital lobby or in the emergency department. Exceptions may be made for those visiting patients at end of life.
Eisenhower Health continues to require masks throughout the duration of a visit, including in exam rooms and patient rooms. Per CDPH requirements, visitors may only visit the patient in their room and cannot spend time in common areas, including the cafeteria.
REQUIREMENTS FOR VISITORS
For fully vaccinated visitors:
In order to enter Eisenhower Health’s hospital in Rancho Mirage, a visitor needs to bring their vaccine verification with them, using one of the state-approved modes listed on our updated visiting hours and policies page.
For unvaccinated or partially vaccinated visitors:
If your visitor is unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, they will need to have a COVID-19 test where the specimen collection occurred within 72 hours of visiting our facility. The test must be performed with an FDA-authorized test, or a CLIA certified lab.
At this time, we are still limiting the number of visitors to two. We appreciate your understanding. Please allow extra time to complete the verification process.
Thank you for entrusting us with your care and for helping us protect our vulnerable patients and our visitors, staff, physicians and volunteers.
