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 instructions.

Exceptions to the visitor policy:

  • No visitors or support persons for patient who have tested positive for COVID-19

  • End-of-life exception on a case-by-case basis

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).
