Well visitors of all ages are welcome at American Fork Hospital. Patients benefit from the support and encouragement of visitors, which helps healing.
In general, visitors may visit American Fork Hospital at any time. Patients may specify visiting times or request no visitors, and we honor those requests.
We encourage visitors to avoid visiting the hospital during shift changes (6 a.m. and 6 p.m.) so our medical staff can properly prepare for their shift.
We institute a quiet at night protocol every night at 9 p.m. where we keep noises and disruptions to a minimum.
Patients may have as many well visitors as allowed on an individual unit. There is no age restriction for visitors to the hospital, though individual units may have restricted visitor age guidelines. Please call the main hospital number to contact a unit about specific guidelines.
For the health and safety of our patients and staff, visitors who are sick should not visit the hospital. Please do not visit at this time if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Runny nose
- New rash
- Sore throat
SEASONAL RESTRICTIONS: At this time, the following additional restrictions are in place in the Level II Nursery areas due to vulnerable patients: Children under age 12 not allowed.
A family member may stay with you throughout your stay; however, they may not be able to stay in the same room with you at all times, depending on the unit in which you stay. Ask your nurse if you have questions.
Visiting after 9 p.m.
To protect our patients and their privacy, we lock the outside doors after 9 p.m. To visit after 9 p.m., please enter the hospital through the main hospital entrance. Visitors will need to check in with security before visiting a patient.
