Visitors can be good medicine for patients. Family members and friends are welcome to visit. However, patient care is our primary concern at INTEGRIS Marshall County Medical Center. Visiting hours are open; however, patient health status may require nurses to limit visitors on some occasions. Please work with the nursing staff on this matter.
The following are general guidelines for visitors:
- Visitors may not smoke in patient rooms, or anywhere in the hospital. INTEGRIS Marshall County Medical Center is a non-smoking facility and campus.
- Visitors must dress appropriately and must wear shirts and shoes.
- We prefer no more than two visitors at the bedside at one time. Visitors in semi-private rooms should be considerate of both patients.
- People with colds, sore throats, or any contagious diseases should not visit patients.
- Visits should be kept short.
- Visitors should maintain a quiet environment and avoid unnecessary noise.
- Visitors may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments, or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.
Any personal information about your diagnosis and treatment must come from your physician, and this information is only available to members of your immediate family, whom you designate to receive it.
Gifts for patients
Visitors should check with the nurse before bringing gifts of food or drink to patients. Please check with the nurse to make sure you gift is appropriate.
Parking for patients and visitors is available at the front or back of the hospital. Parking is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
