Visitors to Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital
Visitors are welcome at Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital and considered a vital part of patient care and recovery. It is our pleasure to support our patients in their choice of visitors.
During cold and flu season, for patient safety reasons, if you are sick, please do not visit.
2019 Visitor Restrictions are currently in place due to widespread flu in the county:
- No more than (2) visitors plus (1) designated care giver/support person per patient may be present in patient rooms at any time.
- No one under the age of 14 may visit the hospital
- Exception: In Maternity units only, healthy siblings of any age are permitted to visit healthy newborns
- If you have a fever, cough, body aches, or a sore throat, or if you have had contact with anyone who had those symptoms within the past 4 days, please postpone your visit until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours.
Visitor restrictions are not unusual, and are occasionally necessary to limit exposure to outside contaminants and protect our patients. We understand that these temporary visitor restrictions may be inconvenient, and we will remove them when influenza is no longer widespread in our area. Thank you for your consideration and commitment to the health and well-being of our patients.
When flu restrictions are not in effect, Arnot Ogden Medical Center maintains a flexible and accessible visitation policy. We welcome visitors to our patient areas from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily. For patient safety and infection control reasons, some specialty units operate differently.
Skilled Nursing Facility (Taylor Health Center): Visitors are welcome from 7 a.m. - 9 p.m. daily.
