    Visitor Policy

    For the health and safety of our patients, staff, and community, our visitor guidelines have changed. Please visit our COVID-19 FAQ page for updates.

    At AAMC, we know your family and friends play an important role in your care and recovery. That’s why you don’t have to worry about visiting hours or crowded rooms. All our rooms are private, so you can relax and heal in your own space, and your family and friends (including children) can visit any time, without interruptions.

    You ultimately choose who may visit, and when. We respect your wishes and encourage everyone to do the same.

    "Family" means any person(s) who plays a significant role in an individual’s life. This may include a person(s) not legally related to the individual. Members of family includes spouses, domestic partners, and both different sex and same sex significant others. It can be a group or individual with a continued legal, genetic and/or emotional relationship as defined by the patient. When the patient lacks the capacity to make his/her own health care decisions, the patient’s designated health care agent or, in the absence of a designated health care agent, the surrogate decision maker will provide guidance in defining family for purposes of this policy.

    Tips For Visiting a Loved One

    Washing your hands is the best way to protect against spreading diseases. Help your loved one heal by washing your hands or using the hand gel dispensers at hospital and patient room entrances.

    Most areas of the hospital have bedside shift report. This process happens when the nurses going off and coming on duty meet with patients at the bedside to talk about their care. This gives you a chance to meet the nurses caring for your loved ones and ask questions. The report is usually at 7 am and 7 pm and lasts about five minutes.
