Visitation Guidelines


At Portneuf Medical Center, we promote the Visitation Rights of patients for emotional and spiritual support. Visitation encourages involvement of spouse, domestic partners (including same sex partners), and other family members or friends as support in the patient’s plan of care and treatment. Patients and their representatives or support person are provided with specific Visitation guidelines when they arrive on the Patient Care Area.

Portneuf does not restrict, limit, or otherwise deny visitation privileges based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

Patients, or their personal representatives or support person when appropriate, may limit, deny, or withdraw permission for any visitor at any time by telling their caregivers. The Manager of the Patient Care Area will work with the patient, their representatives and support persons to resolve disagreements about visitation.

Portneuf may limit or deny visitation for clinically valid reasons as outlined in each area's specific guidelines. The safety of patients, visitors, and staff is our goal.

Portneuf staff cannot provide supervision of minor children. Please make sure that an adult supervises children at all times while visiting the hospital.
