Patients & Visitors
As more people are getting vaccinated and the protocols for Covid-19 are becoming less restrictive, it has been decided that SGMH will begin to allow limited visiting for non-covid inpatients starting on Thursday, April 1st
We encourage people to visit friends and family members. To ensure the privacy and comfort of your family members and friends in our hospital, we request that you abide by the established visiting hours. With a few exceptions, visiting hours are from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. In addition, please observe the following guidelines:
- No more than 2 visitors per patient at a time are permitted. This may be changed at the nurses’ discretion.
- Visitors may be allowed in the emergency department and intensive care unit at most times, provided it does not interfere with patient care or patient needs. Depending on the patient’s condition, the nurse may limit visitation to 1 visitor at a time or no visitors at all. Visitors are encouraged to limit their visit to a short period of time. The only time we do not permit family in the ICU is from 6 to 9 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Please, no phone calls during this time.
- All visitors must wear shoes and shirts.
- All children under 16 years of age must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
- The general visiting hours for the Women’s Center (OB) are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. There is not an age limit for visitors, but all visitors must be healthy. During labor there may be 3 visitors (at least 16 years old), and they may stay until the baby delivers.
For the protection of our patients, no one will be allowed to visit any area of the hospital if they are sick or have been diagnosed with a contagious condition.
