Patients & Visitors

Current Visitation Policy

We look forward to partnering with you and your loved ones to help us make sure your hospital experience is a healing experience. To call a patient’s room, please dial: 321-268-6111.

The following safety measures are in place to provide a safe and healing environment for all:

  • Public access is limited to the Main Entrance and the Emergency Department entrance. Security officers are posted at these entrances.
  • Visitors/Partners-in-care must check-in with picture ID to receive a visitor’s badge.
  • Visitors/Partners-in-care will be verified with the receiving patient/family or nursing team prior to access.
  • Visitors/Partners-in-care are welcomed to be with the patient based on the patient’s preferences and wishes.
  • In the unique event that visitor/partner-in-care presence would need to be limited or restricted to ensure safety or confidentiality, Parrish Healthcare care partners will work with the visitor/partner-in-care to continue the visit as soon as possible.
    • Examples for when visitor/partner-in-care presence may need to be restricted include, but are not limited to a court order limiting or restraining contact, behavior that is a direct threat to patients, families, care partners, or others in the immediate environment, or is disruptive of the functioning of the care unit, or when required pursuant to our emergency management protocols.
  • Patient preference and patient wishes will be given priority.
  • The number of people welcomed at the bedside at one time during a hospital stay will be determined in collaboration with the patient, family and care team. In situations where there are shared rooms, this negotiation will include the other patient and his or her family. To ensure safety, consideration will also be given to the physical limitations of the space.
  • Alternative visitors (e.g. Pets and/or animal-assisted therapy) must be pre-arranged with the care team
  • Partners-in-care are person(s) identified by the patient who are family members and/or other individuals that are present to support the patient during the course of the patient’s stay.
  • Quiet time, designated from the hours of 8 p.m. - 7 a.m. every day, will be observed to promote a restful healing environment for patients. One way this is accomplished is by limiting disruptions from the care team and partners-in-care. If a partner-in-care stays during quiet time, he or she will be asked to obtain a pass from Security. There may be times when visitors/partners-in-care would need to be limited. Every effort will be made to work collaboratively and respectfully with the patient and partners-in-care to ensure the safety, quality of care, privacy, rest and confidentiality of all patients.

If at any time during your visit you would like to speak to a patient advocate or our Patient Experience Professional, please dial 321-268-6685 or 321-268-6683.
