Visitor Information for Inpatient Hospitals
Visitors are welcome and are considered an important part of the rehabilitation and healing process. If there is a clinical reason why a visitor is restricted from seeing a patient, the patient will be notified in advance. As a patient, you may self-determine who may and may not visit during your hospital stay.
Our hospital staff has the responsibility to respect and enforce the patient’s preferences related to visitors as long as they do not present any clinical risk to the patient or to the visitor. Visitors are asked to consult with nursing staff prior to bringing food or electrical appliances to patients. Also, those who are sick or have flu-like symptoms are requested not to visit.
- Privacy: The nurse may ask visitors to step out of the patient’s room when a medical procedure needs to be done. This is done for patient safety and privacy. The nurse will notify the family when they can return to the room.
- Confidentiality: We ask family to stay in the patient’s room or common areas at all times, rather than waiting in hallways, to provide privacy and confidentiality for all patients.
- Number of Visitors: Please limit visitors to two at a time.
- Children: We ask that children always be in the presence of an adult other than the patient. Visits by children less than 12 years of age should always be coordinated with the primary nurse.
- Quiet time: We encourage quiet time from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. We ask visitors to allow this time for patients to rest.
- Family Spokesperson: After admission to Baylor Rehab, the nurse will seek to identify a family spokesperson to be the contact person between the nursing staff, family, and friends. We ask that the designated spokesperson help keep family and friends updated on their loved one’s condition. This will allow the nurses to focus more attention, time, and care for your loved one.
- Sleeping: Guests under the age of 18 are not permitted to spend the night.
- Cell Phones: While cell phones are permitted throughout the facility, please be respectful of others while using your cell phone.
- Photography: Please speak with the Clinical Manager, Supervisor, or Charge Nurse regarding Baylor Rehab’s photography policy.
