All parents and visitors entering the Children’s Hospital are required to obtain visitor clearance, using your valid photo ID. Visitor identification must remain plainly visible at all times.
General visiting hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Children under the age of 18 (including patient siblings) who are visiting a patient must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.
Parents or legal guardians are welcome anytime and are encouraged to stay overnight. In some units, overnight sleeping accommodations may be available for only one parent at a time.
To help keep patients safe from the risk of infection, we encourage families to limit the number of visitors at one time. Also visitors cannot enter the hospital if they are sick, for the safety of our patients.
Family members and visitors should:
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer whenever entering and leaving the patient’s room.
- Stay home if sick, not feeling well, or have signs of an infection or respiratory illness.
- Follow all isolation precautions as instructed by your nurse.
- COVID-19 requirements: Visitation changes may apply for Maynard Children’s Hospital to ensure the safety of our patients. Please click here for current visitation guidelines.
