Hospital Visitation

PLEASE NOTE: Visitors who have been sick in the last 48 hours or had a positive COVID-19 test in the last 10 days MAY NOT VISIT THE HOSPITAL.

Visitation at BayCare hospitals is 8am-8pm daily.

  • Non-COVID patients may have TWO visitors at a time, including children under 16 who are accompanied by an adult. Emergency room visitation may be limited based on capacity.
  • COVID-positive or COVID-rule-out patients will be allowed ONE adult visitor at a time. The visitor will be required to use additional personal protective equipment provided by BayCare while in the patient's room and should restrict their movements in the hospital to just the patient's room.

Exceptions To the Visitation Policy

Patients and their loved ones in the following situations can obtain additional details about visitation options from their care teams:

  • There are extended visitation hours and provisions for pediatrics, neonatal intensive care, labor and delivery, mothers and newborns.
  • Inpatient rehabilitation and behavioral health locations have modified visitation hours to support patient service delivery.

Special circumstances can be approved by hospital leadership on a case-by-case basis, including reasonable accommodation for patients with disabilities or special needs and to comply with applicable laws.
