Current Visitor Policy for Mercy Hospital Ardmore and Mercy Clinics in Ardmore

August 2, 2021

Mercy has adopted leading industry protocols to ensure the highest quality and safety standards to keep our patients, co-workers and visitors as safe as possible while on our campuses. Mercy is restricting visitors at its hospital campuses and clinics in Ardmore and providing guidelines for mask requirements on campus.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as Mercy’s response evolves and protocols are updated. Ultimately, the goal is to maintain the safest possible environment.

Please review the following guidelines, effective August 2, 2021:

Hospital Visitor Restrictions:

  • Patients and visitors will be screened for symptoms at the front entrance.
  • Screeners will ensure every patient and visitor who enters the facility is masked and performs proper hand hygiene. Patients and visitors will receive a sticker once approved to enter the facility.
  • Front entrance screening hours:
  • Monday - Friday: 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  •  Saturday and Sunday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitor Policy:

  • One visitor for all inpatient stays and outpatient visits. 
  • Labor and delivery patients are permitted one designated visitor for the entirety of their stay.
  • Visitors under the age of 16 are not permitted unless in compassionate care exceptions.
  • Exceptions include:
  • Patients who have tested positive for COVID-19, as well as those with pending test results, may not have visitors except in compassionate care cases.

Mercy Clinic Visitor Restrictions

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all Mercy Clinic locations across the ministry are limiting visitors to one per patient. Mercy is temporarily requesting visitor limits like this for the safety of our patients, our care teams and our communities. We will continue to welcome those serving as interpreters or acting as health care power of attorney for patients, as they are not "visitors." Young children may also accompany parents/guardians if child care is not available.
