Visiting a Surgery Patient

To protect our patients, Woman’s is constantly evaluating our visitation policies until COVID-19 is no longer a threat.  Please refer to our most up-to-date visitation rules »

Guidelines for visiting a patient after surgery:

  • Minimize talking as a courtesy to resting patients. 

  • Woman's has several private designated waiting areas for visitors, including family lounges and public areas. Due to safety and privacy concerns, please avoid waiting in the hallways of patient care areas.

  • Do not bring food or coffee into the room. Food smells can make the patient feel queasy. 

  • Promote rest by limiting light, noise and touch. Do not turn on the TV unless the patient requests. Turn off or down ringers on all phones. 

  • Do not bring infants and children to visit until a day or two after surgery. 

  • Children are not allowed on campus, unless they are the patient.
