Monument Health promotes and supports a patient and family-centered approach to care. Partners in care are welcome 24 hours a day according to patient preference, however, in hospitals and care centers the hours of 9 p.m. – 7 a.m. are the preferred quiet time to promote a restful healing environment for our patients.
The number of people welcomed at the bedside at any one time will be determined in collaboration with the patient, partner(s) in care, and the health care team.
Patients and partners in care are encouraged to designate a primary partner in care to facilitate effective communication among extended family members and the health care team.
Partners in care are encouraged to perform hand hygiene before entering and upon leaving the patient’s room.
To keep our patients healthy, we request that partners in care avoid visiting if they are experiencing the following symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose/nasal congestion, muscle aches, and/or fatigue.
Children supervised by an adult other than the patient are welcomed. Children are not restricted by age. Children are expected to remain with the adult who is supervising them.
The use of tobacco products is prohibited on or in any Monument Health campus, location or property. This includes parking lots, sidewalks and streets that fall within property boundaries.
Disruptive behavior and unsafe practices, while rare, will be addressed directly and promptly.
Please note: There may be unique and extenuating circumstances that require compassionate exceptions to these guidelines.
