At California Hospital, we understand that your path to healing includes family and friends, both of whom play an important role in you getting better.
Our Partners in Patient Care
Visitors have always been more than just a “visitor.” They have been our partners in patient care. Research supports the value of having a loved one at the bedside for recovery and for safety. More importantly, a loved one at the bedside is simply the right thing to offer. We are grateful that the guidelines issued nationally and locally support our visitation practices.
Visitation Rules: (masking is recommended, but not required)
Health & Safety
Be Well. Please do not visit the hospital if you have any flu symptoms, including a fever over 100 degrees, cough, sore throat, runny nose, rash or diarrhea, or if you have recently been exposed to someone with symptoms.
Wash Your Hands. Be sure to wash or sanitize your hands before and after visiting your loved one. Proper hand hygiene is the best way to reduce the spread of germs.
Smoking Rules. We are committed to caring for the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff. Because of this pledge, smoking and using any tobacco products is prohibited in all areas of the California Hospital campus, excluding one designated area. People who smoke will need to refrain from smoking or visit the patio area. If you are a patient who smokes, nicotine replacement therapy is available. Please notify your doctor or nurse.
Food Policy. Please do not give any food or drinks to a patient without checking with the nurse to be sure it is all right. Many of our patients are on special diets and the wrong food could make them sicker.
Visitor Badge. All visitors must check in at the Information Desk to obtain a visitor's badge. Visitor badges must be worn at all times while inside the hospital. Please wear the guest badge above your waist.
