Temporary Visitor Restrictions
For the health of our patients, visitors, health care providers and communities, we ask that people do not visit our facilities, including senior services and long-term care locations. For mother/baby and pediatric patients, visitors are limited to a designated partner or primary caretaker/guardian (only one at a time). Exceptions will be considered based on end-of-life situations or when a visitor is essential for the patient's emotional well-being and care.
We recognize that this can be disappointing to our visitors, patients and residents, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you or your family. The health of you and our patients/residents is our top priority.
At The Jewish Hospital, we understand the value of including family, friends and loved ones in the healing process of our patients. We are pleased to offer open visiting in most areas of the hospital. Visitors are encouraged to stop at either Information Desk located in the Main Lobby or at the West Entrance for patient room and telephone number information. Please understand that to protect the confidentiality of our patients, nurses and other hospital caregivers may be limited in the information they can provide.
Overnight stay by an adult family member or caregiver is permitted on most units in private rooms only. If your visitor would like to stay overnight, please discuss this with your nurse. Passes are required for all visitors who remain in the hospital after 10:00 p.m. and can be obtained from your nurse. Children should be 14 years of age or older to visit a patient and should be accompanied by an adult. Please do not leave children unattended in the Lobby, the West Entrance, or Emergency department waiting area.
Help us protect our patients. Do not visit if sick with coughing, sneezing, runny nose, fever or diarrhea. Visitors under 14 are discouraged.
Intensive Care and Open Heart Recovery
Visiting hours are generally open, and visitors are allowed when patient condition and workflow permit.
Blood and Marrow Transplant Unit
Patients on the Blood and Marrow Transplant Unit are very vulnerable to infection, so special measures are in place to keep germs away from them. No children under the age of 14 are allowed on the unit. You should not come to the unit if you are ill. Before entering the unit, you must first call on the phone just outside the entrance of the unit. State the name of the patient you would like to visit. The nurse will check with the patient on whether it is a good time for visitors.
When you enter the unit, you must first stop at the scrub sink and thoroughly wash your hands. You may then proceed to the patient’s room. Fresh flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables are not permitted on the unit.
We’re pleased to offer free and convenient parking for patients and visitors in the garage adjacent to the hospital and outside the ED for Emergency patients.
Free Valet is available outside the main entrance.
Patient information, patient room numbers and telephone numbers can be found by calling 513-686-3201.
