​Visitation​ Guidelines for End-of-Life Patients


​We understand that visitors are an essential part of our patients' experience and are working diligently to provide the best possible experience while ensuring that equally essential COVID-Safe standards are in place. Your understanding and cooperation with our visi​tation policy is appreciated.​

Visitors for patients who are at end-of-life ​must follow these guidelines:

  • End-of-life patients may have more than two (2) visitors, regardless of the time, at the discretion of the physician and care team leaders.​
  • A different visitor may come the next day.
  • Visitors are limited to immediate family.**
  • Children under the age of 13 may not visit.​
  • Visitors must:
    • Be screened before entering the facility.
    • Be in good health (free from cough, fever, shortness of breath or other flu-like symptoms).
    • Follow safety requirements. This includes wearing a medical-grade mask, staying six feet from others and handwashing.
    • Wear a mask. Visitors will be provided a mask if they do not have one. Visitors who refuse or are unable to wear a mask will not be permitted to visit.

**Special circumstances will be managed by the treating physician and care team​ leaders.​​​
