Jamaica Hospital Medical Center offers patient visitation on all of our inpatient nursing units between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Visitors must be free of fever, rash, cough, cold and any other contagious illness. No visitors displaying symptoms of illness are permitted to visit.
As per NYS guidelines, all visitors who have traveled from states or countries experiencing high rates of COVID-19 infections are mandated to quarantine for 14-days and may not enter the building.
Only 1 visitor is permitted per day per patient for a maximum of 4 hours. All visitors must be a minimum of 18 years old.
All visitors must remain at patient’s bedside for the duration of the visit.
All visitors must adhere to proper hand washing and social distancing recommendations and must comply with hospital policies including having their temperature taken upon arrival as well as wearing a surgical mask. Failure to do so will result in the revocation of visiting privileges.
All visitation in the hospital’s adult Emergency Department is currently suspended
We encourage family members who cannot be present for our normally scheduled visiting hours to utilize the hospital’s virtual visitation technology. To schedule a virtual visit, please email: iPadVideoConference@jhmc.org
All individuals must understand that patient visitation poses a risk of exposure to infectious diseases, including COVID-19 for the visitor as well as the patient.
