Your safety is our priority. Mercy Hospital Washington has safety guidelines in place to protect you, your family and your care team during your hospital stay. Take a few minutes to review this information with your loved ones.
Our open visiting policy allows visitors 24/7 access, but please be mindful of our patients who need rest.
The patient's primary support person may visit anytime. During labor, additional visitors are limited dependent on the clinical situation. Other family members or friends are asked to stay in the family waiting area. All children, including siblings, must be accompanied by an adult.
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:
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.
Clean Hands In, Clean Hands Out.
With one simple act, you can help Mercy keep our patients safer: Wash or sanitize your hands on the way in and out. Patients in our hospitals and clinics are vulnerable to infections. Cleaning your hands is the best way to help prevent the spread of germs.
Before entering a Mercy hospital, patient room or exam room, wash or sanitize your hands. Hand-sanitizer stations and public restrooms are available throughout our hospitals and clinics.
Always wash or sanitize your hands after touching any surface in a hospital or exam room, before eating and after using the restroom.
Patient safety is in our clean hands.
Mercy has a hand-hygiene monitoring system with voice reminders for our caregivers. When you hear these reminders, join us in cleaning your hands. Together, we can give patients the safest possible care.
