Visiting Hours for Inpatient Department Only
At times it may be necessary to limit the number of people in a patient’s room for the safety and security of all patients. We ask for your understanding during these times.
- Our daily visiting hours are 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- All visitors must be 18 years of age or older.
- Visitors who are ill or not feeling well should wait until they feel well before visiting. All visitors will have a temperature check in the medical center lobby prior to entering the facility to ensure no symptoms or fever are present.
- We ask that visitors not sit on a patient’s bed for both the safety and comfort of the guest and patient.
- Many of our patients are on special diets. Please check with the nurse before bringing any food to a patient.
- We welcome guide dogs, pet therapy and pet visits. But to help ensure the safety of our patients, we ask that you please prearrange and coordinate these visits in advance. Talk to the nurse or unit representative if you are interested in a pet visit.
Temporary Visitor Restrictions Due to COVID-19
For the health of our patients, visitors, healthcare providers and communities, we are limiting visitors in our facilities.
For inpatients, visitors are limited to a designated partner or primary caretaker/guardian or direct family member over the age of 18 years old (only one at a time). Exceptions will be considered based on end-of-life situations or when an immediate family member is essential for the patient’s emotional well-being and care due to conditions such as cognitive impairment.
We recognize that this can be disappointing to our patients and visitors, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause patients or their families. The health of our patients, residents and staff, as well as the health of our visitors, is our priority.
Flowers, Packages and Mail
Our medical center volunteers graciously deliver mail and flowers directly to patient rooms throughout the day, Monday through Friday. Fresh flowers are welcome in all patient rooms unless the patient is on neutropenic precautions. Check with nursing staff if you have any questions regarding patient-specific details. Any mail received at Washington Regional after a patient is discharged will be immediately forwarded to the patient’s home.
Internet access is available through computers in the Health Resource Center in the medical center’s main lobby or via our free Wi-Fi service. Please ask a medical center team member for assistance.
If you are deaf or hard of hearing or need a language interpreter for effective communication, qualified interpreters are available 24 hours a day at no cost to you. Washington Regional may provide auxiliary aids, and reasonable modifications in policies and procedures to qualified individuals with disabilities. If patients or their families need AT&T Interpretation Services, please inform our staff.
