Bon Secours Hampton Roads (BSHR) shall not restrict, limit or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability.

A. Statement of Patient Visitation Rights

 (1) Patient has the right to receive the visitors whom he or she designates, including, but not limited to, a spouse, a domestic partner (including a same sex domestic partner), a parent or caretaker in the case of a minor (including same sex-sex parents and caretakers), another family member or friend;

 (2) Patient has the right to withdraw or deny such consent at any time; and

 (3) Justified Clinical Restrictions which may be imposed on a patient’s visitation rights.

B. Justified Clinical Restrictions or Patient’s Visitation Rights. BSHR may impose Justified Clinical Restriction on a patient’s visitation rights. When restricting visitation rights, BSHR shall explain to the patient (or Support Person as applicable) the reasons for the restrictions or limitations on the patient’s visitation rights and how BSHR visitation policies are aimed at protecting the health and safety of all patients.

C. Psychiatry Unit Visitation. Visiting hours will be limited to specific time intervals in order to provide an appropriate atmosphere for the necessary care and treatment. Exceptions to the established visiting hours can be made by the Lead Partner on the unit.

D. Children Visitors. Children under 12 years of age may visit a patient with the approval of the Lead Partner or Administrative Coordinator provided they have continuous appropriate adult supervision. Protecting both patients and children from the possible spread of infections or other conditions is carefully considered in determining if children under 12 years of age should visit a patient.

Visiting Hours

We recognize the importance of visiting family and friends. Visitors boosts a patient's spirit and can positively impact the healing process. Family members looking for patients can call the hospital’s main lines and request patient information.

Visiting a sick friend or relative shouldn’t be any harder than it already is, so we try to make visiting as easy as possible to with extensive visiting hours and a compassionate staff.
