Visitation at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Bradford

CURRENT STATUS: INDOOR VISITATION IS ALLOWED BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

We have expanded our visitation to M-F from 1pm – 4:30pm. Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Bradford encourages virtual visits for all patients via Facetime or Zoom (over in-person visits). However, we do allow COVID negative and COVID recovered patients to have prearranged, supervised visits AFTER a patient’s quarantine period has passed.

We will allow 3 visits per time slot in the Day Rooms.
• 1:00 – 1:30
• 1:45 – 2:15
• 2:30 – 3:00
• 3:15 – 3:45
• 4:00 – 4:30

Visitors will be screened at the reception desk and will be directed to either the elevator or stairs with directions to their respective Day Rooms.

Visits will take place in the East and West Day Rooms and in-room for those patients that are in private rooms and too complex to go to Day Room. PATIENTS AND VISITORS MUST WEAR MASKS appropriately, covering nose and mouth, throughout the visit. All MDP policies remain in place and visits will only be scheduled at such time the patient is off of precautions.

Each visit will be supervised to ensure social distancing and proper PPE usage. Designated staff will monitor both Day Rooms to ensure visits are safe and end timely so that sitting areas can be sanitized. At the conclusion of the visitation, a visitor must promptly exit through the main entrance.

 

Please contact your Case Manager in advance to schedule a visit.
