Coronavirus: Notice For Monmouth Medical Center Maternity Patients

[See also earlier statement from OBGYN doctors] The safety of our patients, families and staff is our number one priority. To increase the safety of our moms and babies, Monmouth Medical Center has enacted a strict One Partner Policy for its Labor and Delivery Unit.

Expectant moms who come to the hospital to deliver will only be permitted to bring one partner with them, and can have no other visitors while in the hospital. This designated partner must remain with the expectant mom throughout her stay, and may not transfer their duties to any other person.

Upon arrival at the hospital for delivery, both mom and her designated partner must first go to the Emergency Department, to undergo a thorough screening and testing for COVID-19 symptoms, which include sore throat, cough and fever. If a partner has had close contact with a person who had, has or is suspected of having COVID-19, they should not accompany the expectant mom to the hospital.

Once on the Labor and Delivery unit, the designated partner must remain with the patient at all times and will have extremely limited access to other areas of the hospital. This Labor & Delivery Unit policy is in addition to a strict No Visitor Policy throughout the hospital and the Emergency Department.

Please note that this visitor policy may be updated as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve.

As always, Monmouth Medical Center remains committed to the safety and health of all patients, families, visitors, physicians, nurses and staff.

  1. This probably means that bikur cholim room is off limits. Anyone going to the hospital should take that in to consideration & bring enough food from home

  2. To me-
    I work at Brick. We have plenty of coronavirus patients too. Just go to the hospital where your doctor is, and report any symptoms before you come

  3. my doctor told me there is a 1 day stay policy for maternity patients now. Can anyone confirm or clarify that? Meaning if I have a baby Wed. night at 10pm, they’re seriously discharging me Thursday at 9am or 2pm…?

  4. To dear doctors and hospitals the mom (to be) will be given a mask and directed to an isolation room on the labor and delivery floor. Call your doctor before you go
