UPDATE from Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt
Community faculty may resume rounding in the Newborn Nursery and Inpatient floors on Monday
  • During this phase, practices will be limited to one attending physician rounding in the hospital each day from each practice. This includes rounding in the Newborn Nursery. 
  • Universal masking is required for everyone in all VUMC facilities. You are encouraged to wear your own cloth mask. If you do not have a mask, a one-time mask will be provided to you (universal masking information above). 
  • Community faculty will be required to adhere to COVID-19 screening upon entering the facilities. This includes temperature and symptom screening. 
  • After screening, you will receive a sticker indicating you have been screened with the specific day of the week and calendar date. You must wear this screening sticker the entire time you are in a VUMC facility. If you are observed without a screening sticker, you will be asked to return to the screening stations for screening.
