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
If you are visiting a patient at Ogden Regional Medical Center, you must be at least 18 years old and adhere to the following guidelines. We recognize that there may be special circumstances that require visiting outside of these guidelines. We work on an individual basis to accommodate those needs. If there are any special circumstances that we need to be aware of for your visit, please contact the house supervisor at (801) 317-7888.
- All persons in the hospital are asked to ensure a social distance of six feet or more from others.
- Emergency department patients may only have one visitor stay with them, either in their room or in the waiting area.
- Employees may have one guest visit them at a time.
- Flowers need to be delivered and recorded in the delivery log by the transporter or volunteer.
- For patients having a procedure that will require an overnight stay, one designated support person may wait in the patient’s room, if it is available. If it is an outpatient procedure, be advised that some of our waiting areas are small, and will not accommodate large numbers of people. As such, we recommend making other arrangements for waiting.
- If you are ordering from a food delivery service, you will need to pick up the delivery at the front hospital entrance.
- Non-COVID patients having an overnight stay may have one visitor in the room at a time. If you are among multiple visitors, you should rotate your visitation, exit the facility and not congregate in public areas within the hospital.
- Pediatric and NICU patients are allowed to have both parents present at any time.
- Please wash or sanitize your hands with an alcohol-based sanitizer before entering the facility, as well as before and after being in patient rooms.
- Vendors must have an appointment before visiting departments.
- Wear a face covering for the entirety of when you are in the hospital. This can be as simple as a cloth mask. If you don't have a mask, one will be provided for you.
- When entering the hospital, you will be asked to complete a COVID-19 symptom screening, including a temperature check. If you have respiratory symptoms or a temperature of 100.4 degrees or over, you will not be allowed to enter.
- Visitors must be in good health. Visitors with fever, cough, shortness of breath or other symptoms of respiratory illness will not be allowed to visit until they are well.
Patients who have been diagnosed with or who are being tested for COVID-19 are not allowed to have visitors. However, we understand the importance of contact with loved ones and we encourage use of our electronic visitation options. For more information, contact the house administrator.
