Visitor Information

General visiting hours are from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. every day. Some units have different hours; please check with specific units for hours and conditions.

To insure the safety of patients, all visitors are required to wear a visitor identification badge obtained from the Reception Desk located in the main lobby.

The following guidelines protect the health and safety of our patients, visitors, families, and employees:

  • For health reasons children under the age of 6 are not permitted as visitors, except in special circumstances with the approval of the Charge Nurse.
  • Visitors will be limited to no more than three at a time.
  • The Nurse Director/Charge Nurse may authorize special exceptions if a patient’s condition makes it necessary to use hand sanitizer.
  • Wash hands before and after visiting patients. Insist that healthcare providers do the same before caring for your loved one. Click on this link that shows how to properly wash your hands.
  • For the safety of our patients and to prevent the spread of a contagious illness, we ask that visitors experiencing symptoms of cold, flu or any contagious illness refrain from visiting patients.
  • Keep voices down so that patients may rest. We do encourage all visitors and staff to observe “quiet times,” between the hours of 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm and 10:00 pm – 6:00 am. We dim lights and request minimal conversations in halls, to allow our patients time to rest and to promote healing.
  • Visitors should not congregate in corridors, but utilize approved waiting areas
  • Foothill Regional Medical Center is a smoke-free campus. For the health of our patients and staff, tobacco or other smoking device (E-cigs, vaping etc.) use is not permitted on hospital grounds.

In the spirit of patient/family-centered care and services, we encourage visits by family members and friends.
