Labor & Delivery: Patients, in collaboration with their nurse, will determine the number
of visitors during the labor and delivery process. The patient's designated
significant other will be issued an I.D. band, which needs to be worn
during the duration of the stay. The first hour after delivery will be
reserved for initial parent-infant bonding and newborn and maternal stabilization,
after which family and friends will be invited to meet the baby.
Mother/Baby Unit: To support mother/baby bonding and rest, we ask that visitation be limited
to the hours of 10 a.m. - 1 p.m., and 4 - 8 p.m. The patient's designated
significant other/support person may remain with the patient to assist
with newborn care at all times. Siblings of newborns may visit with adult
supervision; however, to ensure rest for new mothers, they are not allowed
to remain overnight.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU): To reduce risk of infection and create a therapeutic environment, only
immediate family members are allowed on this unit. Please contact the
NICU for more information at (714) 626-8522.
