Visitation Guidelines

We know that as family and friends, you are anxious to meet the new bundle of joy. However, to protect patient privacy and provide a healing environment, the following visiting rules are in place:

  1. Medical Center Hospital Center for Women and Infants are secure areas. All visitors must sign the Visitor Log at the front desk to get a visitor sticker. Please make sure your sticker is visible at all times. All visitors are required to show a photo ID.
  2. Visiting is encouraged during normal visiting hours from 9AM to 9PM, but not limited to these times.
  3. A maximum number of 3 visitors will be allowed in a patient’s room at one time, this includes the patient’s support person.
  4. “Snuggle Time” is in place from 2:00PM – 4:00PM. “Snuggle Time” is a quiet time designed to provide our delivery patients and new families the much-needed rest and privacy they deserve throughout their stay. During this time, the unit’s lights are dimmed. Staff and visitors are asked to be sensitive to the noise level in both the patient’s room and the unit.
  5. Children under the age of 14 may not visit unless they are siblings of the baby. All children must be accompanied by an adult, other than the patient, who can care for or leave with the children if needed.
  6. Please wash hands often and well with soap and water or use the alcohol hand-gel located in all rooms, especially before handling the baby.
  7. Visitors exposed to known infectious diseases or showing signs of illness (fever, cough, etc.) are asked not to visit.
  8. Please respect the request of unit nursing staff if they should occasionally have to ask you to limit numbers of visitors or times of visitation.
  9. Visitors are not permitted to wait in the hallways under any circumstances, they must wait in the lobby if they are not in the patient’s room.
