COVID-19 Emergency: New visitor restrictions

UPDATE: May 19, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we are restricting visitor access to the hospital:

  • No visitors are allowed in any patient room with the exception of 1 (one) parent or guardian for pediatric patients.
  • Up to two visitors/support persons may be permitted in the Family Birth Center. Call 208-883-2229 for more information.
  • No visitors are allowed in the Emergency Department with the exception of 1 (one) parent or guardian for pediatric patients.
  • Certain exceptions may be made for end-of-life situations.
  • We have closed our main entrance (south side of the building) to the public except for patients for Surgery, Family Birth Center, Palouse Urology, Wound Healing, and Interventional Pain. If you are a patient for one of those services, please use the call button located just inside the exterior door.
  • One (1) companion for patients for whom a support person has been determined to be essential to the care of the patient (medically necessary) including patients with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and patients with cognitive impairments including dementia.

While we understand how important the support of loved ones and friends is to patients during their hospital stay, the intent of these restrictions is to do everything we can to protect you, patients and the community. We are encouraging alternative means of communication through cellphones or other mobile devices.

We continue to work closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Public Health-North Idaho Central District, other hospitals and varying state and national agencies to best protect our patients and community.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and Gritman Medical Center will take additional steps to help prevent the spread of infectious disease, including  COVID-19, as necessary.

If you have any questions, please contact Chief Nursing Officer Robert Kendrick at 208-883-2220.
