The importance of family and significant others in support and well-being of our patients is recognized by the caregivers of ContinueCARE Hospital. It is the policy of Continue Care Hospital at Baptist Health Corbin to allow patients to receive visitors of their choice.
A patient has the right to receive visitors whom she or he designates, including but not limited to, a spouse, a domestic partner, another family member, or a friend. Patient visitation is only restricted when:
- The visitor’s presence infringes on others’ rights and safety
- Visitors are medically or therapeutically contraindicated for the patient
- The patient has withdrawn or denied such consent, which can occur at any time.
Visitation restriction guidelines are put in place for the therapeutic benefits of the patient.
The Clinical Supervisor, Case Manager or Chief Nursing Officer can make an exception to the visitation guidelines for therapeutic considerations, including emotional, spiritual and/or physical comfort of the patient.
ContinueCARE Hospital will observe the following visiting guidelines:
- No visitors will be allowed during change of shift report (6:45 – 7:15 a.m. and 6:45 – 7:15 p.m.)
- In the event of an urgent or emergent situation, the nurse has the discretion to ask all visitors to leave the unit/room.
- It is requested that one family member be designated as a spokesperson for patient information.
- Limit the number of visitors at the bedside to one (1) for High Observation patients.
- Children under the age of 16 are not permitted visitation to the High Observation Unit, except for therapeutic reasons as pre arranged with the Clinical Supervisor, Case Manager or Chief Nursing Officer/designee.
- No children under the age of 16 will be allowed in Isolation Rooms.
- Visitor(s) will be asked to leave the room, who may be causing a disturbance or interfering with the patient’s care
- Phones are available outside the High Observation doors to allow families access. If the patient is a privacy patient, the predetermined password must be given before entrance is granted.
General Visitation Rules:
- Visitors are not to bring lounge chairs, appliances, cots, mattresses, etc. to the hospital at any time.
