MarinHealth understands the need for patients to be visited by their family and friends within a safe environment

  • Patient/Visitor Badging: All visitors must wear a hospital-provided identification badge to gain entry into the hospital. Standard screening questions (reason for visit, etc.) will be required before being provided a badge.
  • Limitation of Visitors (for patient safety): At any time, clinical staff may limit the number of visitors according to the patient’s condition. Aggressive/threatening behavior is not allowed or tolerated. Patients can deny visitors at any time.
  • After-Hours Hospital Access: Enter through ED when the Main Lobby is closed (example: mother in labor).
  • Infection Prevention: Visitors need to wash hands / use hand sanitizer when entering and leaving rooms. Visitors must comply with all posted signs outside patient rooms and in common areas.
