Mercy Welcomes Visitors

Please observe these guidelines while you are on our campus:

Mercy’s goal is to provide you with the best care. For your health and safety, we have visitor hours and guidelines in place to help you, your family and your care team during your hospital stay. Please take a few minutes to review this information with your loved ones.

General Hospital Visiting Hours

Our open visiting policy allows visitors 24/7 access, but please be mindful of our patients who need rest.

Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Visiting Hours

Only two visitors will be allowed to see a patient at any given time. ICU staff may further limit visitors at their discretion.

Please review Visitor Guidelines prior to your visit.

Visitors bring emotional support and enhanced recovery to our patients. To provide a restful and safe environment, we ask that all visitors comply with the following guidelines:

  • Be considerate of other patients by keeping noise in room, hallway and waiting area to a minimum.
  • Patients may receive visitors either in their room or in the patient waiting areas.
  • Only two visitors are allowed in the patient’s room at one time.
  • Children under 12 must have adult supervision at all times while visiting. Children may be restricted from certain areas in the hospital to protect vulnerable patients from infection.
  • Please refrain from visiting if you have a cold, sore throat or any contagious disease.
  • Visitors must comply with hand washing and infection control policies as requested.
  • Please do not bring food or beverages to a patient unless approved by the doctor or nurse.
  • Patient restrooms are restricted to patient use only. Visitors should use public restrooms throughout the hospital.
  • Observe “No Visiting” and precaution signs before entering a room.
  • Smoking or vaping is not allowed on our hospital campus.
  • Please leave the room during tests or treatments, if asked.
  • Feel free to use the lounges and seating areas available on most patient floors and in the main lobby.
  • Visitors are expected to be courteous and respectful to the patients, hospital staff, medical staff, and Mercy South property.

If a patient is facing an end-of-life prognosis, the patient’s physician may make exceptions so that the emotional needs of the patient and family are met.

Mercy reserves the right to change current policies for the safety of patients, visitors, and staff at any time during a pandemic, public health emergency, or other exceptional circumstances.
