- UAMS has implemented this temporary restriction on visitors to protect you, our patients and our staff from the spread of viral illnesses.
- It is very important that our staff stay healthy so they can continue to care for patients. The fewer germs they are exposed to, the better.
- Eliminating overnight visitors helps staff focus on patients.
- Our physicians are able to allow one family member to stay overnight in extreme circumstances such as the birth of a baby or end of life. Please talk to your doctor.
