Visiting a Patient

Visitors are welcome at Floyd Medical Center. Following are some guidelines to remember when visiting a patient:

  • Guests may be asked to leave the room when a member of the care team is discussing the patient’s medical condition. Patients must give consent for a member of their care team to discuss their medical condition with anyone other than the patient.
  • A gift shop, dining options  and ATM are available to all of our visitors
  • Visitors have access to free WIFI.
  • New dads are encouraged to stay overnight with new moms.
  • Special considerations of patients in the Intensive Care Unit, Coronary Care Unit and Family Birth Center may limit visiting hours in those areas
  • Pediatric patients must have an adult spend the night with them while in the hospital.
  • Adult patients may have someone stay with them in the hospital room. Ask your nurse for assistance with sleeping in a patient’s room.

Visitors 12 and Under

  • Children are welcome to visit patients, but may not stay overnight.
  • Children 12 and under should be accompanied by an adult.
  • Consider preparing children in advance of what they might expect to see during their visit. Ask your nurse if you need assistance in explanations of various equipment and procedures to a child.
