Visitors and Admission - Updated on 1/26/23

All patients and visitors must enter at the Mason General Hospital main entrance (or the Emergency Department after hours).

All visitors are asked to stop at the Birth Center Nurse’s Station before they proceed to the patient’s room. Visitors/support people may be asked to leave at any time to ensure the safety of patients and/or staff.

Support people during labor have unlimited visiting hours. One support person may continue to have unlimited visiting hours throughout the hospital stay.

  • Support people should be limited to two during labor and delivery. Doulas do not count as support people.
  • If support people leave the unit for a break, travel through the hospital should be limited to and from the exits, vending area, or cafeteria. Travel should be quiet through the patient care areas and may be limited to accommodate staffing and to promote a restful environment. PLEASE limit trips outside the unit to two times per shift.
  • Only ONE person is allowed in the operating room for cesarean births

Visitors after birth, over the age of 12 (not including siblings) who are in good health are welcome to visit, two at a time, during visiting hours, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

  • Siblings of the newborn and partner/support person are not counted as visitors.
  • To ensure privacy and a restful environment, all children must remain in the patient's room and under adult supervision (someone besides the patient) at all times.
  • Visits should be brief to allow new parents and other patients to rest. Quiet time will be from 1 to 3 p.m. daily to allow patients to rest and prepare for discharge. Visitors and calls will be restricted during this time.

Visitors may be restricted:

    • At the request of the patient
    • If the patient is under isolation precautions
    • If visitor numbers are impacting the privacy, rest, safety, and/or security of other patients.

We are committed to providing protection and privacy for our patients. In order to ensure the security of our newborns, you will notice identification and security procedures in place.
