Visitor Information

We thank you for making time to visit your loved ones at 榴莲视频官方. To ensure a safe environment for our patients and visitors, we have updated our visitor policies for all of our locations. Please check for updates before each visit.

We understand the important role that family members and visitors play in a patient鈥檚 healing process, and aim to balance the needs of patients with maintaining a safe environment for all. Our staff can also help patients and their family members communicate through phone calls, Facetime, Skype, and other remote methods as needed.

Information for All Visitors

Please visit your loved one only when you are feeling healthy and well. All visitors must wash or sanitize hands frequently, and must stay with the patient at all times unless directed otherwise by our staff. Wearing a mask is optional, except in certain areas where it may be mandated. All visitors must wear a mask in our emergency departments.

Visitors under the age of 12 are not permitted at this time, with certain exceptions. They may visit a parent who is an obstetric patient or a patient who is in an imminent end-of-life situation. Young visitors also are allowed to accompany their parent on a pediatric outpatient visit. In all cases, visitors under 12 do not count toward the two-visitor maximum. Visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

If a support person becomes ill during their visit, they will be asked to leave and a different support person may be designated.

Visitors are required to show identification and provide information including their name, contact information, dates of visits, and the name of the patient they are visiting.

Patients with confirmed COVID-19 may be permitted visitors only when our staff determines it is safe. We may need to restrict visitors to these patients when it is not possible to sufficiently control the spread of infection.

Visitors who do not comply with the guidelines will be asked to leave.

During Your Visit

We ask guests to keep their voices low during visits so as not to bother other patients. You should also be considerate of your loved one鈥檚 personal preferences鈥攈e or she may like short visits, for example, or ask to have a day without guests. Patients know best how much social interaction they need while recovering.

If you plan to care for your loved one after he or she returns home, use your visits to observe our nurses and ask questions. This can help you feel more secure and confident after your loved one is released from the hospital.

Be respectful of the nurses and doctors, as well as your loved one, who may want privacy when being seen by the medical team.

Please be mindful that all 榴莲视频官方 campuses, buildings, and exterior spaces are tobacco-free, including electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and all other smoking devices. Smoking or the use of smoking devices is not permitted anywhere at 榴莲视频官方.

Patients are permitted to have a single mylar balloon at their bedside. Latex balloons or multiple mylar balloon arrangements are not permitted.

Flowers and live plants are permitted in select areas in accordance with our Infection Control policies. They are not permitted in:

  • Intensive care units
  • Oncology, hemodialysis, infusion, and transfusion units and treatment areas
  • Solid organ and bone marrow transplant units and treatment areas
  • Operating rooms, interventional procedure rooms, post-operative units, and post-procedure units
  • Labor and Delivery for immunocompromised patients

All gift deliveries (e.g. a single mylar balloon, flower, gift hampers, etc.) by messenger/vendor, must be picked up by the patient鈥檚 support person(s) in the lobby of the facility.

Most of all, consider the needs of the patient. People who are hospitalized need to rest in a relaxed environment. Whatever you can do to encourage your loved one鈥檚 recovery may allow him or her to return home quicker.

榴莲视频官方 does not restrict, limit, or deny visitation privileges based on race, ethnicity, language, national origin, socioeconomic status, mental or physical ability, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.
