Guam - Strictly as a precautionary measure with the poor weather conditions, the Guam Memorial Hospital has begun accepting women at least 38 weeks pregnant, as well as all high-risk pregnant mothers 6 months and over.

Admitted mothers will remain in the hospital for the duration of the storm until such time as it is safe to return home.

GMH stated the following:

Pregnant mothers are being asked to eat dinner before they report to the hospital. Meals will be provided when the Cafeteria opens in the morning. Sleepers will be provided to all pregnant mothers.

All pregnant mothers are asked to bring the following items for their comfort and convenience:

 

  • ID and insurance cards (insurance is not required for admittance)
  • Drinking water
  • Snack foods that do not need to be refrigerated or heated
  • Any necessary medications
  • Personal bedding: pillows, blankets, towels
  • Toiletries: soap, toothbrush, lotions
  • Extra clothes
  • Items to help pass time: reading materials or DVD movies

 

Escorts and children will not be able to stay with the pregnant mothers. No pets are allowed in the hospital.

In addition, visiting hours for admitted patients have been suspended and elective surgeries have been canceled until next Monday.
