Combined ShapeCaption

Starting today, Kettering Health Network is allowing one visitor per patient for the patient’s entire stay.

The change in policy went into effect at 8 a.m.

Exceptions include the following:

  • No visitors will be allowed for outpatient testing, such as noninvasive radiology testing, routine X-rays and lab studies.
  • Patients who need help due to mobility, interpretation or health care decisions may have an additional person with them.
  • Patients younger than 18 may be two visitors and are limited to only one parent or guardian at a time.
  • No visitation is allowed for patients younger than 18 unless they are the parent or legal guardian.
  • End-of-life care situations will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
