Visitor Policy

Carris Health is committed to protecting the health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to have visitor restrictions at our hospitals and clinics.

Visiting hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for inpatient settings and normal business hours for outpatient settings. Some exceptions apply. Talk to your care team for special circumstances.

One healthy adult visitor will be allowed per patient in our inpatient settings. In the emergency department, one healthy adult visitor per adult patient and two healthy visitors per minor patient will be allowed.

All other settings, including clinics, remain at one healthy adult visitor per adult patient and two healthy adult visitors for minor patients. All visitors must wear masks.

In the hospital setting:

  • One visitor for the patient’s entire length of stay will be allowed in our inpatient settings. This visitor must be the same person.
  • Minor patient visitors may include adoptive parents and intended parents following an established quarantine period.
  • For patients at end of life, two visitors per patient will be allowed at a time and can rotate based on the situation and care team recommendations.
  • Visitor(s) can be recovering COVID positive, if no symptoms and more than 10 days since initial diagnosis, and be approved by unit charge nurse or appropriate director, and must be masked with medical grade mask.

There are some exceptions and separate guidance for certain patient groups. Please talk to your care team about special circumstances.

These guidelines do not pertain to our long-term care facilities because of different regulations for vulnerable populations.
