Inpatient Rehabilitation Program:
As of August 5, 2021, we are now allowing visitation for patients at Bluebonnet Rehabilitation Hospital from 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m., seven days a week. Patients will need to designate two people that will be allowed to visit. Each patient may only have one visitor at a time.
Screening prior to entry is required. Visitors will be restricted from visiting, regardless of their vaccination status, if they have: current SARS-CoV-2 infection; symptoms of COVID-19; or prolonged close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone with SARS-CoV-2 infection in the prior 14 days or have otherwise met criteria for quarantine.
Outside visitation is also limited to one visitor at a time. Outdoor visitation of more than one visitor is not allowed.
Children under the age of 18 are not allowed to visit.
Visitors should wear well-fitting masks and physically distance from other healthcare personnel and other patients/visitors that are not part of their group at all times while on the TNC property.
Inpatient Post-Acute Brain Injury Program:
As of August 24, 2021, we resumed visitation at our Tejas Post-Acute Brain Injury Program.
A resident is eligible for essential caregiver visits upon admission.
Two family members or friends will be selected to visit as “essential caregivers,” but only one may visit at a time inside or outside. These individuals will remain the assigned visitors throughout the resident’s stay and must be at least 18 years old.
Staff and visitors must wear masks at all times while inside the building regardless of vaccination status.
All visitors must be screened first in Administration on Bluebonnet before visiting Tejas.
During a visit, the resident and family member must stay in the resident’s room or outside at all times and avoid common areas, including the therapy gym. If a staff member is needed, please use the call light.
No trial therapeutic visits are permitted at this time.
The essential caregivers must self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and should not visit if they have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, or an active COVID-19 infection.
Training on hand hygiene, personal protective equipment usage and infection control measures and cough/sneeze etiquette will be provided. If there are any questions, please discuss with the nurse on duty.
Weekday visitation is only allowed for the two designated essential caregivers:
Monday – Friday 4 pm – 6 pm
Weekend visitation must be scheduled for a 2-hour block each day:
Shondra, RN, Nurse Manager and/or Holly, Program Manager, will schedule visits at the time of admission and throughout the resident’s stay.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. Please understand the circumstances around COVID-19 are ever changing, and if there is a need for change, Shondra or Holly will be in touch with you.
The Bluebonnet Medical Rehabilitation Outpatient Clinic is open to full capacity. We continue to offer tele-therapy services if the patient prefers this option.
Visitors are still not permitted in the Outpatient Clinic, unless a caregiver has to be with the patient for assistance and/or training with the therapist.
Everyone entering the Outpatient Clinic will be screened, which will include a temperature check and completion of a screening questionnaire. All patients are required to wear a mask.
We thank everyone for their patience and understanding at this time as we do everything we can to keep everyone safe. We look forward to treating your patients again!
The safety of our patients and staff has always been and remains our top priority.
