Visiting Hours

Jefferson Healthcare visiting hours are from 8:00am to 8:00pm. Please speak to a nurse if you would like to stay overnight with a family member to give comfort and extra care.

Hand Washing

Washing your hands is one of the best defenses against disease. While visiting the hospital, we encourage you to use hand sanitizer conveniently located throughout the building and to wash your hands when entering or leaving a patient area.

Infection

Patients who are sick are not able to fight off infections as easily as healthy people. Please do not visit if you are feeling unwell. While visiting, we ask that you do not:

  • Use the patient washrooms
  • Sit on patient beds
  • Use the patient phone
  • Share the patient’s food or use their utensils, glasses or cups.

VISITATION

Each patient (or support person, where appropriate) has the right, subject to his/her consent, to receive the visitors whom she/he designates. These visitors may include, but are not limited to, a spouse; a state recognized domestic partner (including same-sex partners), a non-registered domestic partner (including same-sex partners), other family members, or a friend. The patient also has the right to withdraw or deny consent at any time.  Jefferson Healthcare shall not limit, restrict, or deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression or disability. Jefferson Healthcare shall ensure that all visitors designated by the patient (or support person, where appropriate) enjoy full and equal visitation privileges consistent with patient wishes.
