visitation

During flu season, we advise family and friends under the age of 18 years old to not visit the hospital.

We request you not visit anyone in the hospital if you have any of the following symptoms:  Fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headaches, chills, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.  This is for the safety of our patients, visitors, and staff.  We appreciate your understanding.  We encourage everyone to do their part to stop the spread of infection through washing your hands, covering your cough or sneeze, and getting a flu shot.

Recognizing the healing benefits of visits from family and friends, we welcome visitors at Canyon Vista Medical Center. We ask that no more than two persons visit at a time. We also respectfully request that you do not visit if you are ill with a fever, cold, or the flu. Visitors should not bring in any food or beverage for a patient without the physician’s approval.

So that our patients may rest and recuperate, we ask that the following guidelines be observed:

Women & Children’s Services:

  • Two support visitors during labor
  • No limit to number of visitors during general visitation hours after baby’s arrival.
  • One support visitor may stay overnight with the new mom.

 

ICU:

  • Our Intensive Care unit allows unlimited hours.
  • Two visitors are allowed for 15 minutes once per hour. These guidelines may vary according to the desires and situational needs of each patient and family and at the discretion of the ICU Nurse.

Emergency Department: 

  • Unlimited hours

Acute Care:

  • Our Acute Care rooms are all private. So we may respect the privacy and individual needs of all of our patients, we ask that no more than two persons visit at one time.
  • Children may have a parent stay overnight with them.

Hospital Visitation Policy Reminder:

  • Two visitors per patient.  Hospital house supervisor may modify visitation to meet special needs of the patient and/or family.
  • The hospital allows a family member, friend, or other individual to be present with the patient for emotional support during the course of the stay unless the support individual infringes on others rights, safety, or is medically or therapeutically contraindicated.  The support person may or may not be the patient’s surrogate decision-maker or legally authorized representative.
  • Visitors will not be restricted on the base of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, (as appropriate to patient care) gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.
  • Visitors/Support persons may stay unrestricted with patients in private rooms.
  • Overnight visitors should be signed in at the front desk and given a visitor tag.
  • Visitors staying with a patient cannot infringe on the rights, privacy or care of the other patients.  Visitors cannot sleep on the floor or in the bed with a patient.
  • Children under 12 should not be left unattended.
  • Visitors may spend time out of the patient room in a lobby area during the night.  Security and the House Supervisor must be notified.
  • Patients have the right to refuse visitation.
