Nash health Care has open visitation. This means visitation is allowed 24 hours-a-day with some exceptions. In order to ensure quality patient care and patient safety, visiting hours may vary depending upon in which unit the patient is staying. Please review the information below and speak with the patient's nurse if you have any questions.
The Critical Care Unit has open visitation except for the following times:
Visits are NOT allowed between 6:30 to 8 a.m.
Visits are NOT allowed between 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Visitors are limited to 2 persons at a time. Children under 12 may visit at the discretion of the nurse.
Visitors are limited to 3 persons at a time.
Because the nursery is a high security area, visitation of newborns will be limited to the mother’s room.
Visitation for babies in the Special Care Nursery must be limited to parents or significant other of mother’s choice. Parents may be asked to leave briefly during procedures.
The Emergency Department is a secure environment with controlled access. The department will strive to meet the needs of our patients at all times but visitation may be limited based on the activity of the department and the condition of the patient.
Visitors may be asked to step outside the patient’s room during procedures. Waiting in the hallway is not allowed due to safety and confidentiality issues; therefore, visitors may wait in the lobby until the procedure is completed.
Family, friends, and / or significant others may accompany and visit patients before and after operative and invasive procedures that are performed at Nash Day Hospital.
Visitors are not allowed in the operative, endoscopic, and post anesthesia recovery areas, Nash Heart Center recovery area, and dialysis
During daytime hours:
Surgery Pavilion visitors will be given a beeper by the information desk when waiting for their family member/significant other to have surgery. When the surgeon completes the surgery, the information desk will be notified and the family member/significant other will meet the surgeon in the consult room. The Pavilion waiting room is open Monday-Fridays except holidays, from 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
After daytime hours:
Between 5 and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, family members of a surgical patient in the OR (operating room) are brought to the ICU waiting area. The OR is notified by the Surgery Pavilion front desk and/or PeriAnesthesia staff that they are in that area. If the surgery is prolonged, the nurse will call that area to update them. The surgeon will contact the family after the procedure in that area.
At Nash Health Care, we welcome visitors. Visits from caring family and friends can promote a patient’s recovery. Equally beneficial to the recovery process is a patient’s need for a quiet and restful atmosphere. Our visitation guidelines are designed to balance the value of visits with the need for rest in a manner that aids recovery. Your cooperation with these guidelines will benefit everyone.
