Visitor Guidelines

St. Elizabeth’s appreciates visitors considerations of our patients’ right to privacy. At any time while visiting friends or loved ones, visitors may be asked to leave the patient room in order for the physician or nursing staff to privately discuss the patient’s care. Other visiting guidelines are as follows:

  • Due to space limitations, it is suggested that no more than two people visit at one time. Special arrangements for additional visitors may be made with the nurse.
  • At times of high flu activity, additional visiting restrictions may be enforces. In general, you should not visit a patient if you have any cold or flu-like symptoms, are under the age of 18, or are pregnant.
  • An adult visitor may stay all night with a patient in a private room.
  • Children under the age of four (4) are discouraged from visiting in patient care areas.
  • Children under the age of 12 may not be left unattended and are restricted from isolation rooms and critical care.
  • Sibling visitation in Obstetrics is the only exception to the children visitor policy.
  • Visitors must be appropriately clothed (shirts, shoes, etc.) while on hospital property.
  • NO WEAPON POLICY: All weapons are prohibited in all of our campus buildings. Firearms must be left in your vehicle and properly secured.
