Floyd Medical Center recognizes the importance and the rights of a patient to have visitors. A supportive Visitation Policy enhances the cohesiveness of the family unit and the patient’s support systems. The patient care areas of Floyd have a flexible visiting policy designed to meet the prioritized needs of each patient, his or her family, friends, and the staff, and to promote the optimal level of health for the patient.
On those occasions where situations or visitation potentially distract from the promotion of the healing process, actions may be taken that restrict or otherwise control visitation. The hospital will not restrict, limit, or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.
