Who May Visit
It is our policy to welcome family and visitors to our facilities. Your concern and attention toward the patient is an integral part of the healing process.
- High Point Medical Center will not restrict, limit or otherwise deny family presence or visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
- Two visitors per patient may visit in the patient’s room. Exceptions may be indicated due to patient condition or request.
- “Family” is defined by the patient or the patient’s designated representative. Family members will collaborate with the nursing staff to coordinate visitation as directed by the patient.
- Family members/visitors under 16 years of age may visit only if supervised by an adult while they are here.
- Some exceptions to the general policy may be indicated as a result of patient condition (i.e., isolation, no visitors). Special instructions may be found on patient room door.
- Family members/visitors with active tuberculosis, chicken pox, shingles, measles, mumps, acute respiratory illnesses, colds, flu, fever, diarrhea, or certain skin infections are asked to refrain from visiting patients.
- To help decrease the risk of infection, family members/visitors will be asked to wash their hands before and after spending time with a patient.
- One family member/visitor is allowed to remain overnight in the patient’s room if deemed beneficial by the patient. Patients should talk with their primary nurse about accommodations.
- Family members/visitors who demonstrate behavior that is disruptive, disrespectful or threatening to staff, patients or other visitors will be asked to leave at the request of the patient and/or staff.
