New, Year-long Patient Visitation Guidelines

Updated: 12/20/2013

Effective Immediately for Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo


To help protect our patients, their families, visitors and staff, Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo has established new, year-around patient visitation guidelines to help avoid the spread of seasonal and other infections or illness, and to help ensure a safe environment for all.

The following patient visitation guidelines are effective immediately:

  • Parents are not considered visitors.  Parents or grandparents may visit anytime, 24/7.
  • Visiting hours for family and friends are from 8:30 am – 8:30 pm.
  • Please do not visit the hospital if you are sick.  All visitors will be screened for a contagious disease before entering patient care areas.  Visitors entering will then receive a pass that must be worn prominently at all times.
  • Parents will receive a wrist band when their child is admitted.  Please wear this band for your child’s entire admission.  This band must be shown at the security or information desks each time a parent visits above the first floor.
  • All children under the age of 14 years must be accompanied by a supervising adult other than a patient.
  • Children under the age of 5 years are not permitted to visit in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit or Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
  • There is a maximum of 4 people permitted at the bedside in inpatient areas.
  • There is a maximum of 2 healthy adults permitted in Same Day Surgery and the Minor Procedure Area due to space limitations and to help ensure privacy.
  • Please wash your hands or use hand gel before and after entering a patient’s room, and have yourself, your child and other family members vaccinated for flu season.

Thank you for helping us provide a safe environment for all our patients, their families, visitors and staff.
