Family members and friends are welcome to visit Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center patients. However, since your loved one’s health care is our primary concern, visiting hours may be limited by staff when necessary. Below are some tips for visiting our hospital.
Open visitation is encouraged to allow flexibility and improved patient well-being. Previsit education will be provided to families as appropriate or assessed by the nurse. Whenever possible, the patient should determine who will visit. If the patient’s condition does not allow this determination, the family will inform the nursing staff who may visit the patient. At the discretion of the physician or nursing staff, visiting may be limited during hand-off reports or during situations that may compromise patient privacy or during sensitive procedures.
Please don’t visit the hospital if you have a cold or sore throat or have recently been exposed to any contagious diseases. All visitors must be in good health.
- Two visitors per patient. More than two visitors at a time can be tiring to a patient. Additional visitors may wait in the lobby or in the cafeteria.
- Keep noise to a minimum. Please be respectful and keep your voice down to allow other patients to rest.
- Children must be accompanied by an adult. At times, children may be more disruptive to patients than adult visitors. Please supervise your children closely.
- Shirt and shoes required. This is for the safety of our patients and visitors and to promote cleanliness in the hospital.
- No food or drink. Please don’t eat in the patient rooms or waiting areas. Only food that has been approved by the nursing staff should be given to a patient.
Thank you for taking the time to read and understand our visitation policy. With your help, we can keep your loved one’s environment as quiet and comfortable as possible.
