The following updates to our visitation policy are temporary, however necessary for the safety of our patients, staff and the community.
Inpatient and Surgical/Procedural Visitor guidelines:
Emergency Department patients will be allowed one visitor as long as the patient does not have a suspected respiratory illness.
Outpatient testing including laboratory and radiology testing is limited to patients only, with the exception of minors and those in need of assistance. Visitors will be asked to remain in their car.
Provider clinics are limited to the patient only. No visitors in the clinic. Exceptions are one parent with a minor child and one support person with a patient needing assistance.
Women's Center: No visitors in the clinic. Exceptions are made for one visitor for the first OB visit or for a procedure (including sonogram). Visitor must be between 18-60 years old and provide their own mask.
We know that you want to spend time with your loved one, so visitors can stay until 9 p.m. For the comfort and rest of our patients overnight, any requests to stay beyond regular visiting hours will be considered on an individual basis by the nurse caring for the patient.
When necessary, the number and frequency of visitors may be limited at the discretion of the physician or nurse for the protection of the patient’s health and need to rest.
Visitors may be asked to leave for brief periods to provide privacy for patient care, confidentiality and/or rest.
The hospital has “quiet time” each day from 1 to 3 p.m.
Children under the age of 12 years will be admitted as visitors to the hospital only in the company of a responsible adult. Children under the age of 6 years will be admitted as visitors only when authorized by the nurse charged with the responsibility for the care of the patient.
Specialized units, such as our intensive care units, may have individual visiting policies.
