Providence Little Company of Mary Visitor Guidelines

Important Update to Visitor Guidelines

New COVID-19 visitation policy effective March 11, 2022

The following visitation restrictions are being implemented for the well-being and safety of our patients and staff by order of the California Public Health Officer. 

This policy is subject to change given rapidly evolving nature with COVID-19.

Visitors are NOT allowed for patients with or suspected of having COVID-19. In certain circumstances, visitors will be allowed on a compassionate exception as allowed by regulations.

Approved Visitation

  • Inpatient and Intensive Care Units: One visitor at bedside at a time between 9am - 7pm. Visitors may rotate.

     » Pediatrics and NICU: One set of parents/guardians 24 hours per day.

     » Labor & Delivery: Two essential support persons that are the same individual throughout              the hospitalization. (A doula may be present during labor).

  • Outpatient Departments (Laboratory, Imaging, Physical/Occupational/Speech Therapy, Cardiac Rehab): One visitor/support person. Rotation not allowed.
  • Procedural Areas (GI, Surgery, Cath Lab): One visitor/support person. Rotation not allowed.
  • Emergency Department: One visitor at a time. Visitors may rotate.
  • Waiting rooms and lobbies will be operating at a reduced capacity and prioritized for the approved designated visitor above to wait while patients may be in a procedural area. All other visitors wishing to rotate in for visitation need to wait exterior to the building due to space constraints. The Emergency Department lobby may not be able to accommodate visitor waiting based on patient volume.
