Hospital Announcements

New England Sinai Hospital is fully prepared to care for our patients and community.

Effective April 22, 2022:

Hours of Visitation:

  • 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., daily

Visitation Requirement:

  • If you have had contact or live with or care for someone that is COVID positive, you cannot visit New England Sinai Hospital for 5 days and must be symptom-free.

All Visitors must:

  • Enter through the C Wing/Ambulance entrance
  • Screen negative for COVID symptoms or new risk factors by the Screening Questionnaire
  • Wear a provided surgical facemask (available at the entrance)
  • Hand sanitize upon entering and leaving the facility and any patient room
  • Maintain social distancing while in the facility
  • Remain in the patient’s room during the visit

In compassionate care situations, including but not limited to end-of-life situations, decisions about visitation should be made collaboratively with the patient and loved ones, as appropriate, on a case-by-case basis.

New England Sinai Hospital will continue to support alternative electronic methods for communication between patients and all other visitors, such as Skype, Facetime, Zoom, etc.

Visitors must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Two visitors per patient, one visitor at a time
  • No visitor under the age of 18 years old (unless the visitor is a child of a patient)
  • People waiting to visit a patient should wait outside, rather than in hospital waiting rooms, until the time of their visit
  • No time limit to visit

Please note - Patients with Physical or Intellectual Disabilities: One support person over the age of 18 will be allowed for patients with physical or intellectual disabilities, regardless of the patient’s COVID status. There are no restrictions on visiting hours. Support persons are not considered visitors.

Support persons must:

  • Meet clinical criteria used for general visitation, e.g., pass COVID-19 screening. The screening includes a symptom check, as well as no known COVID diagnosis within the past 10 days, at least 24 hours fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications, and improved symptoms.
  • Use PPE appropriate for the patient they are supporting. In the event the patient is COVID positive or suspect positive, the support person must use hospital-provided PPE.
