General Visitation Guidelines

Effective March 25, 2020 - A Notice For Our Maternity Patients:

The safety of our patients, families and staff is our number one priority. To increase the safety of our moms and babies, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital has enacted a strict Policy for its Labor and Delivery Unit.

Expectant moms who come to the hospital to deliver will only be permitted to bring one partner with them. This designated partner must remain with the expectant mom throughout her delivery and then must leave the hospital upon her transfer to postpartum.

Upon arrival at The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital main entrance, both mom and her designated partner must undergo a thorough screening and testing for COVID-19 symptoms, which include sore throat, cough and fever. If a partner has had close contact with a person who had, has or is suspected of having COVID-19, they should not accompany the expectant mom to the hospital.

Effective March 22, 2020 - No Visitors Allowed in Neonatal Intensive Care Units

Please note that this visitor policy may be updated as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve.

As always Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital remains committed to the safety and health of all patients, families, visitors, physicians, nurses and staff.

We thank you for your cooperation.
