Overnight Visitation

  • Acute change in a patient’s condition
  • Patient is confused, disoriented and calmed by the presence of a support person
  • Patient is at end of life 
  • Patient has pre-existing care needs that are performed by a support person

Visitors who meet the criteria to visit overnight must register and receive approval to remain during Quiet Hours of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Quiet Hours Visitation Approval Process
Friends and family who arrive and wish to visit between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. must register at the Visitor Check-in on the first floor of the hospital, located in or near the Emergency Department.

At Visitor Check-in, visitors will be asked for their names and for the name of the patient they are visiting. Security will contact the appropriate charge nurse for the visit to be approved. If approved, the visitor(s) will be given a badge that must be visibly worn during the visit. Similar practices are standard at many hospitals.

If the nursing staff is aware of a visitor who is already onsite at 9 p.m. and falls under the exception guidelines listed above, they can provide a badge to the visitor. The visitor(s) does not need to go to Visitor Check-in.

How many visitors can I have at the same time?
In addition, PinnacleHealth is limiting the number of people visiting a patient at the same time during daytime visiting hours, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. Extraordinary circumstances are taken into consideration on a case-by-case basis.

  • Adult semi-private rooms - 2 visitors at a time 
  • Adult private rooms - 4 visitors at a time  
  • ICU, ER – 2 visitors a time
  • Pediatrics – Parents/legal guardian may visit at any time and 1 parent/legal guardian is permitted overnight. Other visitors are restricted to 3 at time from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. 
  • Exceptions or additional restrictions depend on a patient’s condition and location.
