Visiting Policy

 

St. Elizabeth Medical Center has implemented an open visiting policy to allow visitors any time of day.

Visits from friends and family can be an important part of a patient’s recovery. We know how comforting it can be to have friends and family nearby during your hospitalization and we want to ensure that you enjoy the opportunity to receive visitors.

Pediatric patients shall be allowed at least one parent/guardian to remain with the patient at all times, to the extent possible, in regard to the patient's health and safety.

We recognize each patient’s right to designate and receive visitors and you may also withdraw the consent for visitation at any time.

Visitation may be limited if clinical indicators warrant restrictions in order to promote recovery.

Visitors under 16 years old should be accompanied by an adult.

 

Visitors Restricted to Adults 18 Years and Older Only Due to Flu


The hospitals ask that you not visit if you feel ill with any type of upper respiratory problem. Please stay home and delay your visit to keep yourself and the patients and residents safe.

The best protection against contracting influenza includes:

  • Frequent and thorough hand washing.
  • Covering all coughs and sneezes. If you don’t have a handkerchief or a tissue use the crook of your arm not your hand.
  • Staying home from work, school, or social events if you have a fever, cough, sore throat, body aches and pains or other symptoms like nausea or vomiting sometimes associated with influenza.
  • Avoiding people exhibiting symptoms of a flu-like illness.

If you have flu-like symptoms and they are severe and persistent you should contact your healthcare provider.

The hospitals practice “Respiratory Etiquette” in their Emergency Departments, Urgent Cares and Primary Care Medical Offices. Each waiting area has masks for patients to wear to cover their cough, tissues and hand sanitizer for good hand hygiene. If you seeking treatment and have any flu-like symptoms with upper respiratory problems, you will be asked to wear a mask and may be isolated from other patients.
