Before Coming to UAMS
If you have fever, cough or shortness of breath, do not come to UAMS or any other doctor’s office, urgent care clinic or emergency room without first calling and getting instructions.
If someone needs urgent medical care and could have been exposed to COVID-19, tell the operator when you call 911.
Due to an increase in COVID-19 patients in Arkansas and across the country, UAMS is implementing new visiting policies for our hospital. Effective March 20, 2020, hospital visitors are allowed for patients only in exceptional cases such as end of life and mothers in labor.
Please know that we worked very hard to maintain visiting hours as long as possible, but more COVID-19 cases in our community and an ever-increasing workload for our staff forced us to implement this change. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause for your family, but we must take this step for the protection of our patients and staff.
Even in exceptions, visitors must be 18 or older and pass a health screening before entering the hospital. All exceptions require the approval of hospital administration. Doctors and other staff on the patient floor are not authorized to grant exceptions without approval.
Thank you for your cooperation.
We will work to restore visiting hours as soon as possible and will be happy to work with you and your family to stay in touch with one another using technology.
Thank you for trusting us with your care here at UAMS. Please do not hesitate to ask your caregiver if you have questions.
