Visitor Guidelines

Tahoe Forest Hospital District views visitors, families and friends as an integral part of a patient's recovery process. For patient and resident comfort, and safety we ask that you follow these guidelines:

  1. For the health and safety of our patients, we are proud to be a smoke free environment. Smoking is prohibited on hospital grounds. This policy applies to staff, visitors, patients, vendors, volunteers, physicians and contractors.
  2. Visitation of hospital patients is restricted to healthy adults and healthy persons 12 years of age and older (with some exceptions). If you are sick or if you show signs of illness, please do not visit the hospital. Phone calls are a great way to stay in touch with a patient if you are sick. Every patient has access to a phone.
  3. Please check with the nurses' station before entering a patient room.
  4. Limit visitors to two at one time. In some situations, the patient's nurse may allow more visitors.
  5. Please be quiet and speak quietly in the hospital. Turn your cellphone to silent or vibrate while visiting the hospital.
  6. Please respect privacy, if the person you are visiting is in a shared room with another patient.
  7. Visiting hours may be adjusted to meet the needs of individual patients.
  8. After hours visitation requires special permission and a visitors pass must be worn at all times.
