There are times when clinically necessary or reasonable restrictions on visitation may be required. The following are examples of some of these times, but is not considered an all-inclusive list. Where/when restrictions are imposed the hospital must clearly explain the reasons to the patient or support person.
KCOI staff and physicians should to be sensitive to the needs of patients who may request that a visitor be allowed to stay in the room to provide comfort when the patient is undergoing a procedure, and to make a best effort at accommodating such requests if the clinical situation allows for it.
Patients are asked to be unaccompanied by support persons during the first 15 minutes of the clinical admission interview to protect the patient from unintended exposure of personal health information.
Patients or their representatives may file a grievance with hospital administration if they believe their visitation rights have been violated.
Siblings and other visiting children are not allowed to stay overnight. For the safety of all children, please have a non-patient adult supervise children under the age of 12 at all times.
Please help prevent the spread of infection by washing your hands often and covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing.
