We encourage loved ones to visit patients and we make every effort to provide
a safe and comfortable environment for our patients and visitors. While
receiving care, patients have the right to decide who may or may not visit,
and those visitors are allowed without regard to race, color, national
origin, language, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical
or mental disability, or socioeconomic status.
Our staff and caregivers understand the important role that visitors and
support persons play and every effort is made to ensure that our patients'
support person is embraced as a valued member of the care team.
- To safeguard the comfort of all our patients, visitors are asked to talk
quietly and leave promptly when visiting hours have ended.
- The visiting times and/or the number of visitors may be limited in certain
circumstances – and vary unit by unit - to protect the health, safety,
and privacy of our patients.
- If visitors are not feeling well or have an illness that can be transferred
to our patients, please refrain from visiting.
- Visitors must follow infection control precautions, keep noise to a minimum,
refrain from taking photographs or videos, and comply with restrictions
on smoking, alcohol and illegal substances.
- Before entering and after leaving your loved one's room, make sure
to wash your hands.
- All children must be in the company of a responsible adult and may not
be left unattended.
General visiting hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Labor Deliver Recover Post-Partum (LDRP) visiting hours are from
8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., unless rooming in.
(Please note: LDRP allows three visitors at one time - no one under 16
unless they are newborns, siblings, spouses or significant others).
Visits from loved ones can be comforting when you are hospitalized. For
Desert Valley Hospital staff members make every effort to provide an environment conducive to
the needs of both patients and visitors. To allow for your full recovery,
we recommend that you limit your guests to two at time, and keep their
visits to a reasonable length. Because certain types of high-risk patients
may be more prone to acquire infectious diseases than other patients,
visitors are restricted by age in certain clinical areas of the hospital.
If young children accompany your visitors to the hospital, they should
wait in the main lobby under the supervision of a parent or other responsible
adult. Children of patients or siblings under sixteen, however, may usually
visit with the approval of a patient's nurse.
Patients and visitors may park in the main parking lot in front of the
hospital and doctors' offices.
If your visitors would like to drop by our hospital cafeteria for breakfast,
lunch, dinner, or a snack, they're welcome to do so. The Cafeteria
is located on the ground floor of the hospital.
