Patients and Visitors

Visiting Hours

Visitors
Visitors are currently limited to one healthy adult (aged 18 and over) per patient in the hospital at one time. For pediatrics patients we will limit visitors to two healthy adults (aged 18 and over) per patient in the hospital at one time. Only those who are here to visit a patient will be allowed at this time. All visitors will be screened to protect everyone’s health and safety. Patients who have been diagnosed with, or are suspected to have, COVID-19 will be unable to receive visitors.

If a person is coming into Mercy for lab work, xrays, ECG's etc:
  • Only 1 adult (age18 or older) can accompany the patient.  No others will be allowed.
  • Both the patient and the adult accompanying them will be screened -- either at the parking ramp or at the main entrance. There are no exceptions to the screening

 

Please note:
Latex balloons cannot be brought into the hospital because they present an allergy risk to some people. Mylar balloons are acceptable.
