Ronald McDonald Family Room
inside the walls of Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center
**Coronavirus and other infectious diseases**
Updated January 15, 2021. We are monitoring this situation and will continue updating the information below.
We are currently moving through our phased reopening plan for the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. Families are asked to adhere to specific health and safety protocols during their time at the Family Room.
Additionally, all RMHC of Idaho employees and guest families must be able to answer “NO” to all the following wellness check questions. If they answer yes, they will not enter the facility:
- Do you currently have, or have had in the last 10 days, an elevated temperature of 100.4F or higher, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or other flu-like symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea?
- Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 by a medical provider?
- In the past 10 days, have you had close contact with a person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 by a medical provider? (Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet for 10 minutes or more, or living in the same household.)
- Have you been told by a healthcare provider or public health official that you should self-quarantine due to potential COVID-19 exposure or that you are suspected of having COVID-19?
The Ronald McDonald Family Room at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC) is a comfortable and supportive environment for families with ill or injured children. The Family Room provides a place to relax, eat, shower, and sleep for families with sick children, all within the walls of the hospital. We rely on support from the community to keep the Family Room going. You can help support this program by making a donation, providing a meal, purchasing wish list items, and spreading the word about the impact this has on the community.
