Due to the rise in flu cases in our area, Liberty Hospital is implementing temporary age restrictions for visitors in some departments.
Beginning Monday, Jan. 15, no children 14 and under may enter The Birthing Center, NICU and newborn nursery areas. All visitors planning to visit those units must be screened for illness.
Visitors ill or “appearing sick” (i.e. cough, fever or runny nose) will not be allowed to enter any inpatient units. Thank you for your cooperation.
When you visit a loved one at Liberty Hospital, we’re happy to see you because we believe visitors are good medicine for our patients. That’s why we do everything we can do make you feel comfortable while you’re here.
Liberty Hospital’s entire campus is tobacco-free inside and out. All patients, visitors, employees and physicians must leave the Liberty Hospital campus in order to smoke.
Family members and friends are welcome to visit. However, patient care is our primary concern at Liberty Hospital, and in order to enhance the quality of care, specific visiting regulations have been established for each unit. Patients, family, staff and physicians may participate in defining the visiting times to meet your individual needs.
Following are general guidelines for visitors:
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.
Due to the increasing incidence of latex-related allergies in 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 no longer can accept latex balloons for patients, their family members or hospital staff.
We love having friends and family visit our patients. We only ask that all visitors follow guidelines that were made with patient care in mind. Due to an increase in influenza in our community, children 14 and under will not be allowed to visit patients until further notice.
