To further protect the health of our patients, visitors, staff, and community – and to prevent the potential spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) – United Regional has modified its visitor policy, effective Wednesday, March 18, at 7 a.m., until further notice. For the latest information on how visiting hours have been affected, please click here.
Medical-Surgical, Outpatient, Progressive
Adults and children of all ages (with adult supervision) are allowed to visit between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
Family and friends may visit new mothers between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. So new mom’s can have an opportunity to rest, we’ve created “Mom’s Time” from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. We ask that family and friends not visit during this time period.
The father or support person may visit at any time during the mother’s stay and are encouraged to spend the night. Overnight guests are limited to one per patient and must be 15 years of age or older. Children, especially siblings, are welcome, but we ask that they wash their hands, be in good health and be supervised by an adult other than the mother or nursing staff during visitation.
Intensive Care/Cardiac Intensive Care/Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit
The intensive care units have open visitation EXCEPT during the hours of 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Visitation is left to the discretion of the physician and a nurse based upon the patient’s condition and is restricted to immediate family members and the patient’s surrogate decision maker. Two visitors are permitted at a time and short visits are suggested. Children under the age of 12 may be allowed to visit, however, the visit will be at the discretion of the physician and nurse based on the patient’s condition. During certain situations, visitors may be asked to temporarily leave the unit.
7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Parents, guardians and significant others may visit at any given time and one parent/caregiver is encouraged to spend the night. Children of all ages are allowed to visit. Children must wash hands, be in good health and be supervised by an adult other than the mother or nursing staff during visitation.
