Guidelines for visitation are based on the ability to provide a safe, comfortable and caring environment that promotes the healing and wellness of patients while recognizing the importance of visitation to our patients, their families, friends, and/or support persons.

Osceola Regional Medical Center will not restrict, limit, or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

All visitors enjoy full and equal visitation privileges consistent with patient preferences.

Exceptions to open visitation are in the Critical Care and Maternal Child Services areas. Restrictions in these areas are for the safety, security and well being of the infants.

For the safety of the child, visitors under 14 years of age are discouraged from visiting. The Registered Nurse in charge of the patient and/or the Department Director may make exceptions on an individual basis. The patient’s well being, comfort and safety is the primary responsibility of the Nurse and will be considered in making decisions to allow visitors under age 14.
