Scheduling & Visitor Restrictions
Current Visitor Policy
Doctors Medical Center is committed to taking the necessary and critical steps to ensure patients, visitors and staff in our hospital are safe and remain healthy.
The following visitor policy is currently in place at Doctors Medical Center:
All patients with the exception of COVID-19 and behavioral health patients
- All patients are permitted two visitors per patient at a time. All visitors must be 16 years of age or older, unless approved by a nursing director.
Emergency Department patients
- One designated visitor per patient is allowed.
- Two designated visitors/support persons are allowed. Both visitors may be present at the same time.
End of life patients and other extenuating circumstances
- Visitation in these situations will be managed by the director of the unit and multiple visitors may be allowed.
Visitors may enter through the Emergency Department for patients needing emergency services, or through the Main Lobby for all other patients.
All visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms upon entry, provided a mask and asked to perform hand hygiene. The hospital-issued mask should be worn at all times while in the facility. Visitors are requested to stay in the patient room and not congregate in common areas.
Visitors are not allowed for COVID-19 patients and those under investigation, or behavioral health patients.
We understand certain situations will require an exception to the visitor policy, and hospital leadership will grant exceptions on a case-by-case basis.
Doctors Medical Center is committed to keeping our patients, our staff and our community safe. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.
An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
