In order to ensure a safe and nurturing environment for our patients, we ask all who enter the Women and Infants’ Center to respect the following:
Please limit the number of visitors to a total of five (including the father).
Visiting hours will not be restricted during mom’s labor. However, postpartum visiting hours are from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Visiting hours will be extended for patients who deliver before or after visiting hours.
If the new baby arrives before or after normal visiting hours, visiting hours will be extended for two hours after the baby’s time of birth.
Triage patients may have two visitors.
Children will not be permitted in triage.
Patients having inductions may have two overnight visitors.
Sign in and wear visitor passes.
Mom’s designated significant other will receive a paper pass, which will be exchanged for a unique identification band after delivery. This unique identification band should not be removed until discharge, as it identifies you as an important member of the new baby’s family. All other visitors must sign in and obtain a visitor pass at our information desk in the main lobby of the hospital. Also, you will be asked to leave a photo ID (e.g. driver’s license) with our front desk for the duration of your visit. Each room has four corresponding visitor passes, allowing for four visitors in addition to mom’s significant other. If all four passes are in use, additional visitors will be asked to wait in the main lobby until a room pass is returned.
Visitors under the age of 12.
Visitors under the age of 12 are allowed to visit after delivery only if they are siblings of the new baby. Visiting children must be accompanied at all times by a visiting adult. Children who are not siblings of the new baby must wait in the main lobby under the supervision of a visiting adult.
Siblings may attend the birth.
Siblings wishing to attend must complete the sibling preparation course and have written permission from the unit manager. Siblings will not be permitted to spend the night in the hospital. The health of our new mothers and their babies is the primary concern of the Women and Infants’ Center. Therefore, visitation may be denied or terminated at the discretion of Protection Services, the nurse manager or designee, or the attending physician.
Thank you very much for your cooperation.
