Visitor Resources

When a friend or loved one is staying at Meade District Hospital, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to have an enjoyable visit with them.

  • Visitation Hours

    Official visiting hours are 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM. Family members of patients are welcome to stay as needed or desired by the patient. It is important that visitors respect the patient’s need for rest during recovery. When a particular patient needs extra care, we may set limits on who may visit and for how long. Visitation may be restricted throughout the hospital at certain times such as flu season.

     

  • Visitation Guidelines

    • To find a patient’s room assignment, ask someone at the Information Desk in the front lobby or nurses’ station.
    • Always knock and use the sanitizing hand rub before entering the patient’s room.
    • Avoid visiting before 10 am when patients may be busy with daily treatment activities or with their doctors.
    • After 6 pm, outside doors are locked. Visitors can still use the main entrance by speaking to the Nurse’s Station through the intercom next to the inside front door.
    • Please do not visit if you have a cold or other contagious conditions.
    • For the health and safety of your children, please check with the nurse in charge of the unit before bringing children under 12 years old to the patient care areas of the hospital.
  • Waiting Rooms

    Family members may utilize waiting areas to allow the patient time for rest or to give caregivers a break from caregiving. These are located in the front lobby, outpatient areas south hall and emergency north of nursing station. There are also park benches located outside west of the main entrance.

    Vending machines are located off the front lobby where you can purchase drinks or snack items. The cafeteria is located in the far south east corner of the hospital.
