Cuero, TX—Cuero Regional Hospital announced that effective Friday, August 13, they are returning to the previous policy of one visitor per patient. This is for both Cuero Regional Hospital’s patients as well as Cuero Health Clinics’ patients; only one visitor per patient.
Weekday and weekend inpatient visitor hours will not change; they remain 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Cuero Health continues their universal masking policy in line with current CDC best practices; all patients and visitors will be required to wear a mask and will have to be screened. Those visiting an inpatient during the week are to enter at the Cuero Medical Clinic screening area (located in the back of the hospital) and those visiting over the weekend are to enter at the front main entrance of Cuero Regional Hospital for screening.
“Cuero Regional Hospital is returning to our previous visitor policy which limits one visitor per patient due to the surge of COVID-19 in our area. Minimalizing the traffic in our hospital and clinics by limiting visitors is a good step in slowing the spread. Also, in order to assure a safe care environment, all Cuero Health departments, patients and visitors will be asked to continue to practice proven tactics for controlling the spread of COVID-19, including wearing a mask while in the facility,” said Lynn Falcone, CEO of Cuero Regional Hospital.
