visiting hours at Arnold Palmer Hospital are determined by
each individual nursing unit. Please check with the nursing staff
caring for your child, family member or friend to see what the guidelines are
for that unit.
Visiting Restrictions and Guidelines
recognize the importance of visitors to our patients. However, some of
our patients do not have the ability to fight off infections. If you currently have or if you have been around anyone with any of the following symptoms, we suggest that you do not visit: cold/flu, chicken pox, diarrhea, fever, German measles, hepatitis, measles, mumps, skin rash, strep throat, vomiting.
When visiting, please practice careful hand washing.
At Arnold Palmer Hospital for
Children, we place a great emphasis on protecting the privacy and safety
of all of our patients. For this reason, all family members and guests
must check in daily at the main Information Desk located in the hospital
atrium next to Cinderella's Castle. All family members and guests age
16 and older will be asked to present picture identification at the
check in desk. Our Guest Services Team Members will provide each family
member and guest an identification badge with photo that will allow them
access to the unit that is caring for the patient they wish to see.
Please remember that all family members and guests will need to repeat
this check-in process daily and receive an updated badge daily to ensure
that they are able to visit the patient.
