Patients and Visitors

Updated visitor policy 

To protect our patients, staff and community from the risks associated with COVID-19, as of Friday, March 27, Nebraska Medicine will no longer allow visitors in our hospitals or clinics. 

We understand this change may make your stay or appointment with us more difficult. However, we believe this decision is necessary given the current extraordinary circumstances. 

There are some exceptions to this policy:

  • Pediatric patients may have two healthy parents, or designated adult visitors, one at a time
  • Labor and delivery patients may have one healthy visitor and beginning Monday, June 1, certified doulas may attend births at Nebraska Medical Center. One doula will be allowed for each patient, and the following criteria must also be met:
    • Doulas must be screened upon entry. They may not enter if they exhibit any physical symptoms of COVID-19
    • They must present their certification upon entering
    • They must wear a mask
    • They are allowed for the delivery and immediate post-partum period only
  • In special circumstances, a patient’s treatment team will evaluate the necessity for a visitor

If you have an upcoming appointment, please keep in mind, only patients will be allowed inside. We ask that friends or family members wait in the car. If you need assistance during your clinic appointment, please call ahead to let us know.

On behalf of everyone at Nebraska Medicine and UNMC, we thank you for your patience and understanding. We also ask for your help. Please ask your family and friends to follow these rules during this pandemic period. Together, we can lessen the impact of this virus on our community, and hopefully return to normal soon. In the meantime, if you have additional questions, please feel free to ask your nurse, physician or any member of your care team.

At Nebraska Medicine, a dedicated team of professionals are committed to providing you with the highest quality of care. This team includes physicians, residents, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, social workers, chaplains, students, patient relations representatives, volunteers, and support staff. Each team member knows how important it is to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
