5/3/22
Beginning Tuesday 5/3/2022, we will update our visitation policy to allow some increased access to the hospital building.
Visitation hours at the hospital will now be 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, 7-days-a-week. After 8:00 PM, guests are asked to please use the ECC entrance.
We are also lowering the age limitation so that those 12-years-old and up may enter the building.

Hospital patients may now have 1 visitor who may stay overnight with the patient. All other aspects of the visitation policy are unchanged at this time.

Regarding masks, since the CDC has identified all counties in our service area as low COVID risk for an extended period of time, we are happy to announce that we will be relaxing some of the mask requirements organization wide. Here are the details:

  • Masks are now encouraged but not required for all fully vaccinated team members, as well as all patients or visitors at Self Regional Healthcare, Edgefield County Healthcare, and Self Medical Group locations. Everyone must continue practicing common safeguards including hand washing, physical distancing, etc. Visitors or team members with active symptoms should not enter the building.
  • Non-vaccinated team members are required to wear a mask.
  • All team members will be required to wear a mask around patients who are immune compromised (i.e. cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation, post-transplant, etc.) or in other clinical areas where masks are normally required.
  • All team members will be required to wear a mask if requested by the patient or family members.
  • All team members will be required to wear a mask around patients in respiratory isolation.

All other aspects of our masking policy remain unchanged. We will continue to closely monitor the status of the COVID-19 transmission rate in our area and make any adjustments, as necessary.
