Visitation Guidelines
At Bloomington Meadows Hospital, we believe that contact and family involvement are a vital part of the healing process. Support networks not only provide an important comfort to patients, but also serve the important role of raising the spirits of individuals at a difficult time in their lives. Please follow the guidelines below to ensure visitation remains therapeutic, safe, and enjoyable:

  • Visitors must be listed on the Patient Consent sheet (completed by legal guardian) and have photo ID in order to visit.
  • Patients are limited to 3 visitors per visit, this is to ensure that our patients, staff, and visitors are kept safe. Groups of more than 3 will need to split visitation times.
  • Visitors must be 5 years of age or older. Infants and toddlers will not be permitted to visit. Please be mindful that this is for the safety of our patients and visitors alike.
  • No purses or bags are allowed during visitation, please leave these items in your vehicle (but remember to bring in your photo ID).
  • Cellular/smart phones are strictly prohibited to ensure patient privacy and follow federal regulations.
  • No outside food is allowed, this is to maintain the milieu environment.
  • If you have any requests outside of these parameters, please have them approved by the patient’s therapist prior to visitation. The therapist will relay special requests to reception staff.

Visitation Hours
Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to visitation start time; late arrivals result in delays/shortened visitation time. If you are bringing patient belongings, please arrive 20-30 minutes early to complete necessary inventory form. Thank you!
