Our visitor restrictions are in place for the safety of our patients, staff and community members. We hope that persons who would normally have been able to visit, will understand the extreme importance of keeping their loved ones and our staff healthy during this unprecedented time. If a patient or family member has extenuating circumstances, we will work with them to accommodate their needs.

Our visitor restrictions are as follows:

  • Visitors are limited to two per patient.
  • Each visitor must wear a mask at all times.
  • Visiting hours are 7:00am to 7:00pm.

Exceptions may be made, especially when involving:

  • Pediatric patients
  • Laboring mothers
  • Patients under end-of-life care
  • Patients with certain mental health and wellness needs

We appreciate your patience and support to help us maintain a safe environment for our patients, colleagues and care providers. We encourage, where possible, that persons utilize technology to connect with their loved ones in and out of the hospital. Thank you for supporting them at a distance during this challenging time!

We are dedicated to keeping our communities informed regarding emergency situations that may impact patient care.

Our hospital's current visitor information

Our commitment to the safety of all our patients, colleagues, and our community is our top priority. One way we reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 is by implementing visitor guidelines.

To enter into Lone Peak Hospital, you must:

  • Be over the age of 14.
  • Be free of COVID-19 symptoms, which include:
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Muscle or body aches
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore Throat
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • Have no exposure to others with COVID-19, or suspected to have COVID-19, in the past 14 days.
  • Wear a mask at all times. Per national CDC guidelines, masks that cover both nose and mouth must be worn in the hospital setting, particularly when hospital personnel is in the room. The hospital will not supply masks.
  • Wash your hands or use alcohol sanitizer before entering and after leaving our hospital. This helps to prevent the spread of viruses on high-touch areas.
  • Maintain social distance from others while in the facility. This includes staying six feet away from other guests.
  • Not linger before or after visiting. When visiting, go directly to the room for the patient you are visiting. After your visit, please exit the hospital immediately.

If you are visiting a patient who is positive for COVID-19, or who is under investigation for COVID-19, you must:

  • Visit with up to only one other designated visitor at a time
  • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times
  • Not have current COVID-19 symptoms and have proof of complete COVID-19 vaccination (more than two weeks after the second dose of Pfizer/Moderna or after the first dose of J&J)
    • As an alternative, you may provide proof of prior positive COVID-19 test at least 14 days ago and within the past 90 days AND is recovered from COVID-19

Additional visitor guidelines by department

We have designed department-specific COVID-19 visitor regulations and restrictions based on the needs and practices of each department. Exceptions will be made for end-of-life and comfort care patient circumstances.

We ask that you comply with these guidelines for the safety of each patient, visitor, physician and staff member. Failure to comply with these guidelines may potentially result in your removal from the hospital.

Emergency department

While in the emergency department, only one healthy visitor per patient may be present.

Imaging

Up to two visitors will be allowed to accompany the patient for any imaging services.

Labor and delivery

In addition to prioritizing the safety of our physicians and staff, in the labor and delivery unit, our primary focus is ensuring that mothers and newborns are as healthy as possible. Please avoid visiting if you display any signs of illness, specifically fever, cough, runny nose or sore throat. If you do visit someone in this unit, you must adhere to the following:

  • Visitors must be 14 years or older unless you are a sibling of the baby.
  • There may be only one designated support person for the entire length of stay. Whoever this is will wear the other Baby ID Band.
  • Four additional visitors are allowed in the room at one time. We ask that visitors not stand and wait in our hallways. Please use the second, third or main floor waiting areas.

Sibling visitor guidelines

  • Siblings can visit new mothers during the postpartum time period.
  • Siblings cannot visit during labor or triage.
  • Siblings are not allowed to stay overnight.
  • Siblings must be accompanied by an adult at all times (the adult accompanying the child cannot be the patient).
  • Siblings need to come during the visiting hours of 9:00am to 9:00pm.

Visiting hours

  • Postpartum visitation hours run from 9:00am to 9:00pm.
    • Only one visitor may spend the night during the postpartum period, and they need to be 18 years or older.
  • During labor visitation, visitors are allowed 24/7.
    • If labor occurs after 9:00pm, the visitors in the room cannot switch out. Additional visitors can visit during regular visiting hours on the next day.
    • If delivery occurs after 9:00pm, additional visitors may stay one to two hours after delivery and then revisit during postpartum visiting hours the next day.

All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
