COVID-19 & Vaccine Updates: See visitor policy, coronavirus test price, FAQ and more

Visitor policy

Visiting hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Masks and social distancing are required.
• Only visitors free of COVID symptoms or exposure are allowed to visit.
• Two visitors per patient - per day
• No visitors age 14 and younger

Patients having an outpatient procedure may have their essential visitor(s) with them. However, if social distancing is not possible in the waiting area due to number of visitors, they may be asked to wait in the car or another vacant area in the hospital. Staff will call or text the visitor when it is time to come in the hospital.
Patients who are COVID‐19 positive or are suspected to be positive are not allowed to have visitors except in the following circumstances:
  • Laboring mothers may have a maximum of one designated healthy visitor throughout their stay
  • Patients at end of life will be allowed one asymptomatic visitor one time for 30 minutes. The visitor must wear specific protective equipment as determined by the healthcare team.
Non‐COVID end‐of‐life patients: If the need for visitation extends beyond normal visitation hours, the unit manager may determine the need for additional visitation hours.
No domestic pet visits. Service animals may have restrictions; refer to the pet visitation policy.
  • To enter Liberty Hospital visitors must:
    Wear masks. All visitors must wear a face mask and are encouraged to bring their own. In some circumstances, masks and other equipment will be provided.
  • Maintain six feet of distance from others while in the facility. Follow maximum capacity signage in elevators; and avoid gathering in waiting rooms, lobbies or entrances.
  • Be in good health. Visitors should complete a self‐screening at home. They should stay home if having COVID symptoms, awaiting test results or have been recently exposed to COVID.
  • Perform hand hygiene before entering and upon leaving our facility and rooms to prevent the spread of virus on high touch surfaces.
  • Be older than age 14. Visitors 14 years of age or younger may not visit (except to seek care for themselves).

We continue to encourage hospital patients to communicate electronically or by phone with loved ones and friends. Video chat, voice and text messaging options are digital alternatives and help our patients and loved ones feel connected. Should patients desire to visit others virtually and lack a device (e.g., smartphone or tablet), please let the patient care team know so we may help you with devices and technical support.

Smoking policy

Liberty Hospital’s entire campus is tobacco-free and vaping-free inside and out. All patients, visitors, employees and physicians must leave the Liberty Hospital campus in order to smoke or vape.

Gifts

Visitors should check with the nurse before bringing gifts, including food or drink, to patients. Please check with the nurse to make sure your gift is appropriate. On the intensive care unit, please check with the unit nurse regarding gifts or flowers for the patient.

No latex policy

Due to latex-related allergies in some of our patients and staff members, Liberty Hospital has adopted a latex-free guideline for all areas of the hospital. As part of this guideline, the hospital does not accept latex balloons for patients, their family members or hospital staff.
