Visitor Restrictions


Patients may select one visitor/support person who will have access to visitation at all hours. This individual will be banded with the child’s information and must be the same individual throughout the duration of the hospitalization.

For Labor and Delivery, one additional adult visitor is permitted. This additional visitor does not need to be the same individual throughout the hospital stay.

In addition to the designated support person, one doula may attend the patient at all hours. The doula is determined to be an essential element of the patient’s healthcare team. This must be the same doula throughout the labor process. The doula will be provided with an orange band to be worn at all times. The doula must meet all criteria as specified above for visitors.

For 3M, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., two additional adult visitors as well as children who are siblings of the newborn are permitted. The additional visitors do not need to be the same individuals throughout the hospital stay.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Visitation for NICU patients is limited to two parents or legal guardian(s). In the event that there is one parent or legal guardian, a second support person may be designated to visit with the parent or legal guardian. The identified individuals will be banded according to organizational standard. The visitors will be the same for the duration of the admission. Visitation may be altered at the discretion of the organization and unit leadership.
