We welcome well visitors of all ages to visit patients at Alta View Hospital. Visitors provide encouragement and support, which aids in the healing process.
General Visiting Hours
Check with your nurse for unit-specific guidelines.
Protect your loved one by staying home if you are sick or have recently been exposed to a contagious illness, such as chicken pox, measles, mumps, pertussis (whooping cough), tuberculosis, or rubella.
Intensive Care Unit
Immediate family members over the age of 12 are welcome at any time around the clock but may want to avoid the time between 6 –7 a.m. and 6–7 p.m. when nurses do reports and care preparation.
Visiting at Night
Most outside doors are locked after 8 p.m. To visit after that time, come to the main entrance.
Please supervise small children closely for their own safety and for the comfort of our patients.
Flu Season Guidelines for the Women and Newborn Unit
To ensure the health and safety of newborn babies in our Women’s Center, we observe these rules during flu season (usually October-March):
- No children under age 14 except siblings. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
- Visitors must check in with hospital personnel prior to entering the unit.
- All visitors should be free of signs or symptoms of infectious disease.
- Visitors must remain in patient rooms for visiting. If waiting to see a patient, please use our lobby area outside the locked doors.
