May 21, 2021 Update:
All Brooks Rehabilitation locations are open for business. Masks are still required inside all of our facilities and must be worn at all times. We ask all our employees, patients and guests to remain vigilant. Continue to wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet apart, avoid crowds and wash your hands often.
Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital
To protect all patients and prevent the spread of COVID-19, visitors are required to wear a mask at all times, including in the patient rooms.
Patients are permitted to have two visitors in their room during visiting hours from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. They can both visit at the same time and can switch out during the day.
No one under 16 is allowed to visit in a patient’s room, but can visit in the Sandpiper Café or the outdoor courtyard, pond or Healing Garden. Everyone must wear a mask at all times and practice social distancing.
Aging Services (Bartram Crossing, Bartram Lakes, The Green House Residences, University Crossing)
Our Aging Services facilities will be following either the Compassionate Caregiver or General visitation rules depending on the number of days since a positive COVID-19 case. Each facility will know at any given time which rules they are following. Please refer to the weekly letter or call the specific facility you’d like to visit to determine the most current visitation status. You can access the latest Division of Emergency Management order here.
All visitors will need to check in at the visitation table in the lobby to conduct a COVID symptom screening, wear a facility-provided face mask, sign a consent form indicating they understand the facility’s visitation policies and maintain social distance of at least six feet with staff and residents. All visitors must stay in the patient’s room throughout the visit.
Home Health and Outpatient
Both our Home Health and Outpatient divisions are open for business. We are continuing our current universal masking and hand hygiene processes.
Patients in our outpatient clinics are limited to one caregiver/family member that can accompany them during therapy. In addition, we are continuing to be diligent with cleaning between patients and practicing social distancing.
Our community programs are operating at a reduced capacity to allow for social distancing. Please contact each program for specific details.
