Visitors to Grand View Hospital, medical practices or outpatient centers who are not patients, must be in good health and complete a health screening to enter. This includes a series of questions and a temperature scan. Approved visitors to our hospital will also receive a badge that must be worn at all times.
Everyone entering a Grand View Health location is required to wear a mask. Please bring your own clean or recently laundered fabric mask. We are working to assure we have adequate supplies for our workforce during the COVID-19 outbreak. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided.
Visitors are allowed with the following guidelines:
Visitors will not be permitted to enter any Grand View Health facility under any circumstances if they are:
For physician office visits or outpatient testing, patients are not allowed a support person unless they have a physical condition requiring assistance or are under 18 years of age. The support person must leave a phone number with staff and will be called when the patient has completed the visit or test.
Obstetrics outpatients may be accompanied by one support person to their outpatient studies such as ultrasound tests.
Maternity patients are permitted one support partner through the duration of their hospital stay.
Support partners cannot change during the mother’s stay. This minimizes the risk to families, patients, and our labor and delivery team.
Rule out labor – Grand View Health has recently updated the visitor policy for the Birth and Family Center. One support partner, who meets Grand View Health’s health screening criteria, will be able to accompany an expectant mother when visiting the hospital to rule out labor, for non-stress tests and for other medically necessary pre-delivery testing.
Only the support partner is permitted on The Birth and Family Center with the following guidance:
Grand View Health is not permitting support partners in our infusion treatment or radiation therapy departments unless the patient has a physical condition requiring assistance. The support person must leave a phone number with staff and will be called when the patient has completed treatment.
Drivers for patients receiving treatment may wait in their car. You will receive a call when the patient’s treatment is finished.
Community clergy will only be permitted to visit patients who are nearing end of life and may visit only to offer last rites. Eucharistic ministers may not visit to offer communion. Pastoral care services are available at Grand View Health to support and attend to patients’ diverse spiritual needs.
