Hospital Visitor Policy
Updated: June 2, 2021
Gunnison Valley Health welcomes visitors to the hospital for patients who
are COVID-19 negative and do not display any symptoms.
Two (2) visitors or support persons per day can visit loved ones in both
our Patient Care Unit and Family Birth Center. One (1) visitor per day
may visit a patient in the Emergency Department.
All visitors must wear their own personal mask or one will be provided
for them upon arrival. All visitors will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19
and perform hand hygiene before being allowed to enter. If a visitor shows
signs or symptoms of COVID-19 they will NOT be allowed to enter the building
unless they are seeking care.
If you are sick we recommend you do not visit anyone in the hospital. However,
we know that under certain circumstances you may need to visit your loved
one. In that case, please consult with the nurse or the unit for specific
Exceptions to the visitor policy:
Patients with disabilities who require help with the provision of medical
or behavioral health care, activities of daily living, speaking for the
patient or keeping the patient safe, may have a designated assistance
person. (Patients with disabilities is defined by the ADA as a physical
or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life
activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment,
or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment).
