Visitor Guide

At Grove Hill Memorial Hospital, we value family-centered care and the dignity of the individual. To that end, we believe that visits from family members and friends play an important role in the healing process. We also believe that rest is important and that all patients deserve a quiet and private recovery period. Designated visiting hours and policies provide an effective mechanism to support these goals.

Visiting Grove Hill Memorial Hospital

Patient Visitation

Patient visitation will be limited to two (2) people at any one time except under circumstances when more visitors are deemed necessary for the patient's welfare.

Children under the age of 12 are not permitted on the inpatient units. It is inappropriate for infants and children to be in a surgical patient's room. If an adult visitor must bring a child with them to the hospital then another adult should stay with the child in the lobby during the visit.

Patients in the first few days after surgery are at a much higher risk of infection so visitors who have experienced a fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, skin rash, vomiting or diarrhea in the last 48 hours before a visit is planned are discouraged from visiting until they are certain they will not expose the patient to more risk of disease.
