Visitors

At Flagler Health+, we understand that loved ones play a very important role in a patient’s recovery. It is also our responsibility to keep our patients, staff and visitors safe. To support this, an inter-professional team of physicians, infection prevention experts and leadership at Flagler Health+ has established a revised visitor policy appropriate for the current state of COVID-19 in our community.

Visiting hours are from 8 am to 8 pm with the following guidelines:

• Inpatients will be allowed two visitors, over the age of 18, excluding patients in the behavioral health unit.

• Visitors to labor and delivery will be allowed one visitor who must stay with the patient.

• Postpartum patients will be allowed one visitor who may come and go.

• NICU will be allowed two visitors at a time.

• Patients arriving for surgeries and procedures will be allowed one visitor during pre-operation and recovery times.

• Emergency Department patients, except for those presenting with respiratory symptoms, will be allowed one visitor once they are placed in their treatment room.

• Special circumstances, including visitation for patients diagnosed with COVID-19, will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

• All visitors must pass a COVID-19 screening, which includes a questionnaire and temperature check, and also wear a mask during their entire visit.
