Patient and Visitor Information

Restricted Visiting Hours

McLaren Thumb Region is taking a proactive approach to mitigate the spread of the new coronavirus, COVID-19. McLaren is closely following the guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure that all necessary precautions are being taken to protect the health and safety of the community.

With this approach in place, McLaren Thumb Region is currently under visitor restrictions, effective immediately:

  • Our hospital is not allowing inpatient visitation except for labor & delivery and patients at the end of life.
  • Social visitation should be via telephone or Facetime.

McLaren Thumb Region understands that visiting loved ones in times of illness is important. However, putting the best interest of our patients and community members first by doing our part to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 is our primary concern at this time.

 

Visiting Hours and Guidelines

General Visiting Hours

8:30 am - 8:00 pm

Hospitalized patients need the support of family and friends. A positive visitor experience can help raise patient's spirits, a key to recovery. Following these guidelines can make these visits even more effective, safer, and more worthwhile for you and the patient.

Visitor Expectations

  • Quiet Time: 9:00 pm to 7:00 am (observed on all units)
  • Children: Children under age 12 (must be accompanied by an adult)
  • Cell Phones: Cellular equipment may interfere with hospital monitoring systems. Please use cellular phones only in designated areas of the hospital.
  • Visitation Restrictions:
    • No more than two visitors may be in a patient room at any given time.
    • Visitor guidelines are subject to change in order to meet health, safety, or other emergency needs. Any and all such changes will be clearly communicated to visitors at the Information Desk.
  • Overnight Accommodations: If there is a need for a visitor to stay overnight, please arrange for accommodations with staff.
  • Non-Smoking: Smoking and/or the use of any tobacco product, including electronic cigarettes, is not permitted anywhere in the hospital or on hospital grounds.
    • Because the nursing staff is not able to care for you if you leave the building, patients may not leave the hospital to smoke.

Fire Safety

We periodically conduct fire drills. If you hear an alarm, stay where you are. In the event of an actual emergency, hospital staff will notify you. The hospital is fire resistant, and our employees are well-trained in safety procedures.

Keeping our patients and employees safe during COVID-19

We have steadfastly continued to provide life-saving care throughout the onset of coronavirus and are determined to meet the health care needs of the communities we serve into the future.
