Jamaica Hospital welcomes patient visitation and understands the important role visitors have on our patient’s overall happiness. Visitors offer comfort and reassurance for patients during what can be a very stressful time. Their support is often vital in the recovery process.

We ask that you read the following guidelines:

  • Patients have the right to decide if they wish to have visitors.
  • Patients have the right to choose who can and who cannot visit them during their stay without regard to their legal relationship, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.
  • Children under 12 years of age are generally not allowed in patient care units, except for siblings on the mother-baby and pediatric units.
  • Requests for overnight stay by family/ support person will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Reasons for restricting visitors may include:

  • The patient requests restrictions or limitations.
  • There are safety concerns, such as risk of infections.
  • An existing court order that restricts contact is in place.
  • Visiting interferes with the care of other patients, including the need for their rest and/or privacy.
  • The patient is in a substance abuse/ mental health treatment program that requires limited visiting.
  • The hospital reserves the right to remove anyone for disruptive behavior.
