Visitors play an important role in helping patients recover, and Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center welcomes family and friends to visit with patients during their stay.

 

Please note:

 

l All visitors to the hospital must wear a face mask while in the facility.

 

l Visiting hours are flexible and based on a patient's condition.

 

l The main entrance doors are unlocked from 5:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Doors are locked all other hours, including weekends and holidays. Visitors should use the Emergency Department entrance during the overnight hours.

 

l The patient may choose who can visit them regardless of whether the visitor is a spouse, domestic partner, family member, friend, or another type of visitor.

 

l The patient may choose a support person to act on their behalf. A support person means a spouse, domestic partner, family member, friend, or other individual who is at the hospital to support the patient during the course of the patient’s stay at the hospital and may exercise the patient’s visitation rights on the patient’s behalf if the patient is unable to do so. The support person may, but need not be, an individual legally responsible for making medical decisions on the patient’s behalf.

 

l The patient has a right to change their mind, at any time, on who will serve as their support person and about who may or may not visit.

 

l Beatrice Community Hospital may impose justified clinical restrictions on a patient’s visitation rights when the restriction or limitation is necessary to provide safe care to the patient or other patients.

 

l If a patient believes that his or her patient visitation rights have been violated, he or she may file a complaint using the hospital internal grievance system.

 

We also ask that you consider the following:

 

l If a patient’s door is closed, please check at the nurses’ station before entering the patient’s room.

 

l If you have signs of a flu, cold or COVID-19, please reconsider visiting the patient and exposing them to additional illness.

 

l Overnight stays by a visitor are allowed.
