Visitation Policy

Children under age 17 not permitted.

Visitation is restricted for all patients, with further clarification for specific facilities and units, to protect our patients, visitors and staff. A designated visitor is the visitor who first visits the patient that day and may not change during the day; designated visitors may change the next day.

Inpatients: One designated visitor per day, except two per day for an end-of-life situation. For an end-of-life situation, a patient may have two designated visitors per day, but these two visitors may not change throughout that day. 

Pediatric Patients: Visitation is currently restricted to mother and father or support person only.

COVID-19 Suspected/Confirmed Patients: No visitors, except two designated per day for an end-of-life situation. For an end-of-life situation, a patient may have two designated visitors per day, but these two visitors may not change throughout that day.

NMMC Women’s Hospital, NMMC Gilmore-Amory and NMMC-West Point: Only one designated family member or caregiver per maternity patient per day in order to limit the number of total visitors.

NMMC Women’s Hospital NICU, NMMC Gilmore-Amory NICU: For the protection of our babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, visitation is currently restricted to mother and father or support person only.

Outpatient surgical patients: Visitation is limited to one visitor (the patient’s designated driver) before and after surgery.

We ask that visitors who meet these visitation guidelines refrain from visiting if you have symptoms of a respiratory infection:

  • Temperature of 100.4 degrees F or higher
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

Masks are required.

Visitors who do not follow personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines will be asked to leave the premises to protect the safety of our patients and staff.
