No Visitors For Patients Due To COVID-19
We have included some articles about how patients were stripped of their right to have a visitor (support person) during the coronavirus pandemic. The zero-visitor policy, even during a pandemic, is inhumane and should never be implemented. Check out the article, No Visitor Policy During a Pandemic.

“At risk of dying alone”: Strict hospital no-visitors policies halting some families’ goodbyes

It is horrible that a mom, Elizabeth Reiter had to be in the hospital for 21 days and her husband was never allowed to visit her. Sadly, she passed away after 21 days. Her husband, Steve even went as far as having a COVID test to show he was negative and the hospital still would not let him see his wife.

A Heart-Wrenching Thing’: Hospital Bans on Visits Devastate Families

Man visiting sick wife escorted out of hospital ICU amid COVID-19 visitor policy

This is a horrible case. It's ridiculous and very inhumane that this hospital asked a loving husband who was dedicated to staying with his wife (even staying over night) to leave. He definitely posed no danger to the hospital. He was actually much less likely than the medical professionals to have COVID-19 since his wife was basically the only patient he interacted with. Patients should never be stripped of their right to have their spouse present.
