Beebe announces update to visitor restrictions

LEWES, Del. – Starting today, May 14th, Beebe Healthcare is updating its visitor restrictions to allow inpatients to have one well visitor between 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. at the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus.

We’re told this includes patients at the Lewes and South Coastal Emergency Departments and Beebe Medical Group offices. Patients being discharged at times other than the new visiting hours will be allowed one well visitor 30 minutes prior to discharge to help with patient care instructions.

No visitors will be allowed for COVID-19 patients, and patients under suspicion for COVID-19 except for special circumstances. Exceptions are also made for labor & delivery, surgery patients, pediatrics, and end of life patients.

Visitors are asked to stay with the patient to limit movement throughout the hospital. Visitors may also be asked to leave if the care team deems it necessary for any clinical reasons. Face coverings are still required at all Beebe sites.
