Health and other visitor guidelines

Some care areas do have special guidelines for guests. Please talk to your nurse to determine if any special guidelines apply to the area where your loved one is receiving care. Out of care and concern for our patients and for you, we ask that if you have signs or symptoms of infection or contagious disease, or have had recent exposure to anyone with an infectious disease, or have received a live vaccine – measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), VARIVAX® or ZOSTAVAX® – within the past four weeks, that you refrain from visiting.

People with flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, body aches) are asked not to come to the hospital for visitation. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this policy. Our goal is to limit the spread of flu-like illnesses and keep our community healthy.

Smoke-free facilities

All LVHN facilities – including all buildings, parking lots and grounds – are completely smoke-free. This policy not only applies to all visitors, but all patients and hospital staff.

Any visitor smoking on the hospital property will be asked to refrain from doing so. We appreciate your cooperation.

Our aim, as a smoke-free organization, is to protect and improve the health of our staff, patients and visitors, both smokers and nonsmokers.
