Visiting Hours and Guidelines

 

At St. Mary Medical Center we are committed to encouraging and supporting the presence and participation of families and others who play a significant role in the physical and emotional support of patients. We encourage visitors between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily.

 

Visitors after 8 p.m. will need to check in with security.

The critical care unit visiting hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

To provide a restful and safe environment, we ask that all visitors comply with the following guidelines:

  • Be considerate of other patients by keeping noise to a minimum.
  • Refrain from visiting if you have a cold, sore throat, or any contagious disease.
  • Observe “No Visiting” and precaution signs before entering the room.
  • Do not smoke. St. Mary is a non-smoking campus. Smoking is not allowed
  • on the grounds.
  • Leave the room during tests or treatments if asked.

Labor and Delivery
Labor & Delivery is a locked unit and requires visitors to call in to be granted access. Patients may have up to three support people during their labor and delivery and one primary support person during C/S recovery. The primary support person must be older than 14 years of age. Sibling visitation is welcomed per family request. An adult visitor must be available to supervise visiting siblings. Exchange of visitors may occur in the labor room areas but visitors are limited to one person at the bedside in the prep room. 

Post-partum
Rooming-in is encouraged for all stable mother/baby couplets 24 hours a day. Infants may be returned to the nursery for care at the request of the parent or physician. Infants may be monitored/observed in the nursery during the mother’s recovery period.

NICU
Families are welcome in the unit at any hour of the day, up to two people at any one time. One of the visitors must be the mother, father or primary support person designated by the parents. Siblings, over the age of three years old, may also visit. 

Pediatrics
Visitors are welcome at the beside anytime during the patient’s hospitalization. Up to 2 visitors may spend the night, including mothers/fathers or an adult designee.

Med/Surg and Telemetry
Spouses, immediate family and designated primary support person(s) are welcome to remain at the patient’s bedside. In private rooms, one person designated by the patient/patient’s representative is welcome to sleep at the bedside.

ICU
The Intensive Care Unit encourages a patient-designated primary support person for every patient in the ICU. The patient and primary support person will partner with the care team to discuss any special circumstances that may limit visitation. Space in the patient room may limit the ability for in-room overnight stays but designated primary support persons may stay in the ICU adult waiting room with frequent visitation.

Acute Rehabilitation
The acute rehabilitation welcomes family and any primary support persons designated by the patient to remain at the bedside.
