To help ensure the safety of our patients following the recent increase in the number of respiratory illness cases throughout Western New York, until further notice Women & Children's Hospital is limiting patient visitation to two individuals older than 14 years-of-age visiting at one time.
Siblings, family and friends may visit between the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily. Children visiting under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Number of Visitors
Most units allow up to four family members/ visitors at a time. There may be special circumstances that allow for alteration to this policy. Additional visitors may wait in the cafeteria.
For all patients’ safety, families, visitors and outpatients are required to stop at the Information or Security desk on the first floor before their visit, to obtain an Identification sticker. Each family member/visitor is asked to provide photo ID. If photo ID is not available, a photo of the visitor will be taken. An identification sticker is then created for the family member/visitor to wear during their visit to the hospital.
**There are additional guidelines for specialty units, such as the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)–Guideline Coming Soon, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Labor and Delivery, Same Day Surgery, and Women's Services.
Each patient has the right to determine who may and may not visit, whether it be a spouse, domestic partner, family member, friend or other support person. Kaleida Health will not restrict, limit or deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, disability, socioeconomic status or physical appearance.
