We encourage people to only bring vaccinated visitors to the hospital setting. As our community continues to be vaccinated and build its immunity, we have adjusted our visitor policy. Visitation requirements may change at management’s discretion.
Hospitalized patients, procedures, treatments and doctor appointments
Visitation is limited to 2 healthy visitors per day in medical surgical units, procedural areas. Hospitalized patients will be allowed 1 overnight visitor.
Intensive care unit (ICU) visitation is limited to 2 healthy visitors per day. We encourage you to use electronic communication, such as a smartphone or video chat whenever possible. For overnight visitors, patients should refer to their unit’s policy.
Labor and delivery patients are allowed 2 healthy visitors. One healthy visitor may stay overnight. For the Neonatal ICU, both parents will be allowed to visit at the same time.
On the day of surgery (either incoming for surgery or already hospitalized), 2 healthy visitors are allowed to stay in the waiting room during surgery, then accompany the patient back to the unit.
Patients may bring 1 healthy visitor when they are receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
No visitors are allowed in the emergency department waiting rooms. One healthy visitor may be allowed once a patient is in an exam room. An exception will be made in compassionate cases. Patients who have tested positive or are under evaluation for COVID-19 will not be permitted visitors.
COVID hospitalized patients in isolation
No visitors are allowed, even with proof of vaccination. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis by unit management.
Applicability and exceptions
All visitors must comply with all PPE requirements, and agree to participate in entry-point screening.
Special consideration will be made for disabled patients who may need more than 1 visitor to provide support and knowledge about their care. Decisions regarding visitors of disabled individuals will be made collaboratively with nursing leadership.
Visitor policies will vary for long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs).
If you feel an exception is needed, please speak to management.
Patients’ clergy may visit without being “counted” against the patients’ visitor limit. As with all visitors, visiting clergy must check in with screeners, wear a mask, submit to a temperature check, and state whom they plan to visit
Everyone must wear a mask at all times while in Houston Methodist facilities. While not mandatory, we encourage you to also wear a face shield for further protection.
