Visitor Information

VisitorsVisiting Hours

Visitors can be "good medicine" for patient, so family members and friends are welcome to visit. Because patient care is our primary concern at Fort Duncan Regional Medical Center, specific visiting hours and regulations have been established for each unit in order to help enhance the quality of care. Visiting hours for general, medical and surgical units, and for nursery viewing, are from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm. If you need additional information, please check with the nurse on the unit.

Visiting Regulations

Following are general guidelines for visitors:

  • All visitors to patient rooms must be at least 12 years of age. In certain situations, a patient may leave the floor to visit children in the hospital lobby, or children may have a limited visit in the patient's room. If you wish to make such arrangements please talk with a nurse.
  • Visitors may not smoke in patient rooms or anywhere in the hospital except the designated smoking areas outside the dining room and the ER entrance.
  • All visitors must wear shirts and shoes.
  • No more than two visitors at a time are allowed in patient rooms.
  • People with colds, sore throats or any contagious diseases should not visit patients.
  • Visits should be kept short, and to maintain a quiet environment, visitors should avoid unnecessary noise.
  • Visitors may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.
  • Special and extended visiting arrangements may be made for families of surgical patients on the day of surgery.
