1. If I am visiting a patient at GMH, may I spend the night with them?
Grady Memorial Hospital's (GMH) mission is to ensure all patients enjoy equal visitation privileges consistent with patient preferences and subject to the Hospital's Justified Clinical Restrictions.
Hospital restrictions include(s) and is not limited to all visitors should be completely free infection, visitors exhibiting signs and symptoms of communicable diseases, such as scabies, cold, influenza, etc., should be asked to defer their visit until the illness is resolved. If delaying visitation is not an option, GMH will educate the visitor(s) on disease transmission, the risk to the patient, hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene products, and trash receptacles. Children without signs and symptoms of illness can visit patients during visiting hours. Children suspected to be ill should be limited to the lobby. Anyone in contact with the sick children should be educated on hand hygiene before interacting with patients.
A family member, friend, or other individuals at the hospital can advocate for the patient during the patient's stay at GMH and may exercise the patient's visitation rights on the patient's behalf if the patient cannot do so. Such an individual may, but need not be, legally responsible for making medical decisions on the patient's behalf.
Hospital visitation hours are non-restrictive by hours of the day or night; however, extenuating circumstances may exist and proper visitation restriction and protocols will be enforced.
