Visitor Policy and COVID-19 Information

We have updated the visitation guidance for hospital and ambulatory settings based on the most recent public health order by the CDPH to include the key changes below:

Hospitals and clinics may now allow all patients to have visitors without restriction provided physical distancing can be accomplished and visitors comply with infection control guidelines, including masking.

Visitors are no longer required to show proof of vaccination or of negative COVID-19 test result to visit their family or friends in the hospital.

Anyone entering our facilities must continue to wear a well-fitted mask, that covers their nose, mouth, and chin, regardless of vaccination status. You may receive a recommendation to wear a KP supplied mask upon entry to facility to improve safety. Please adhere to all self-symptom screening required for entry to our facilities as posted at entry points.

Latest Updates on COVID-19 Testing

Most of the time, you can use an easy and reliable no-cost home antigen test for your COVID-19 testing needs. Not sure which COVID-19 test is right for you? See our guidelines on choosing the right COVID-19 test.

For those times that you need an in-person COVID-19 PCR test as directed by your doctor or if you are attending an event or activity that specifically requires a negative PCR test result, you can now get a rapid PCR test with results in approximately 2 hours at our convenient Northern California Kaiser Permanente testing locations. No appointment is needed and there is no cost.

Volunteer as a Patient Advisor to Share Your Experience and Help Make a Difference in Patient Care

Since its official launch in November 2017, Kaiser Permanente Antioch Medical Center’s Patient Advisory Council (PAC) has grown from an idea to a highly active group helping make a difference in the lives of Kaiser Permanente members and staff. The PAC meets monthly to share experiences, ideas, and suggestions on how Antioch Medical Center can continue to be a great place to receive care.

“The goal is to improve the overall experience of our members and patients in the future by receiving real-time, real-life feedback from people who are coming to us for their care,” says Ariel Chan, volunteer services manager, who is co-chair of the PAC.

Who becomes a patient advisor? Perhaps you! Think back to the last time you or a family member were in the hospital. Did you think there were things that could have been improved? If so, joining the PAC is an opportunity to share your feedback.

Patient advisors attend monthly meetings where they are encouraged to speak up and share their experiences – both positive and negative – and those they have observed. The PAC takes an upbeat and practical approach to brainstorming ideas and coming up with creative solutions.

“The establishment of the PAC has been an exciting development at Antioch Medical Center,” says Janet G. Jule, chief nurse executive. “We have been pleased with the success of the program and how well received it has been by volunteers, staff, and members.”

Patricia Ahern has been a volunteer at Antioch Medical Center for 11 years as well as a longtime member, and was one of the first to join the PAC. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time as a volunteer. Joining the PAC was the perfect opportunity for me to share my improvement suggestions from a patient’s perspective,” Ahern says.

Currently, the PAC has four members and would love to have more. “We see many opportunities to grow the program and look forward to extending it to other departments,” says Jule. Volunteers need to be members of the local community or receive care in the Diablo Service Area, not be employed by Kaiser Permanente, and have four to five hours a month available to attend the monthly meetings.

“The more people who join the PAC, the more we can spread this successful strategy to other areas,” says Chan. “Everyone has been so impressed with how inspired and committed the PAC volunteers are. They have made a real difference.”

To learn more about how to join the PAC, please call or email Ariel Chan (925-813-6362; ariel.f.chan@kp.org).
