UPDATE 6-16-2020:

Visitor Policy Update/Política Actualizada Para Visitantes


ENGLISH

Visitors will not be permitted if the visit poses a significant infection control risk to the patients, visitor or staff. Anyone who is observed not following these rules will be asked to leave the hospital.

For the health and safety of our patients and employees, we are asking our visitors to review the updated visitor policy, which appears below. Thank you!

  • Upon entry to the hospital, you will be asked screening questions. You must successfully pass the screening before being allowed to visit.
  • Visitors are required to go directly to their loved one’s room; do not walk anywhere else in the hospital or wait in waiting areas or lobbies.
  • One visitor is allowed per patient at a time. If you are visiting a patient in the Childbirth Center, the laboring patient and partner are considered one, so one additional person is allowed to visit the Childbirth Center patient couplet.
  • Visitors are required to wear a hospital-issued mask at all times while in the hospital; they must clean their hands at a hand hygiene station upon entering the facility.
  • Observe social distancing – 6’ apart from others – whenever possible.
  • Check in and check out at the Main Entrance.

Visitor hours are daily from 12 noon to 8 pm for all areas except inpatient Behavioral Health, where visiting hours are Mon. through Fri., 5:15 to 6:45 pm; Sat., Sun., holidays, 2 to 5 pm.

No visitors under age 18.

Cooley Dickinson Hospital is limiting visitation for those people who are on COVID-19-related precautions or for those who are suspected of having COVID-19.

ESPAÑOL

La política a continuación se aplica solo a los visitantes de pacientes hospitalizados. No se permitirán aquellos visitantes cuya visita presente un riesgo significativo para el control de infecciones de los pacientes, visitantes o el personal. Se le pedirá que se vaya del hospital a cualquier persona a quien se haya observado que no está siguiendo estas reglas.

Por la salud y seguridad de nuestros pacientes y empleados, les estamos solicitando a nuestros visitantes que revisen a continuación la política actualizada para visitantes. ¡Gracias!

  • Al entrar al hospital, se le realizarán preguntas de detección. Usted deberá pasar satisfactoriamente las preguntas antes de permitírsele la entrada.
  • Se requiere que los visitantes vayan directamente a la habitación de su ser querido; no camine hacia ningún otro lugar en el hospital ni espere en las salas de espera o vestíbulos.
  • Es permitido un visitante a la vez por paciente. Si usted está visitando a un paciente en Maternidad, la paciente dando a luz y su pareja son considerados uno, por lo tanto, se permite a una persona adicional visitar a la pareja en la maternidad.
  • Se requiere que los visitantes usen una máscara proporcionada por el hospital todo el tiempo que estén en el hospital; al entrar a las instalaciones deben limpiarse las manos en el puesto de higiene para las manos.
  • Siga el distanciamiento social – 6 pies de separación de los demás – cuando sea posible.
  • Chequéese en la entrada principal al llegar y al salir.

Las horas de visita son diariamente desde las 12 del mediodía hasta las 8 pm para todas las áreas excepto para los pacientes hospitalizados en salud conductual, donde las horas de visita son de lunes a viernes de 5:15 a 6:45 pm; sábados, domingos y feriados de 2 a 5 pm.

No se permiten visitantes menores de 18 años.

Cooley Dickinson Hospital está limitando las visitas a aquellos pacientes que se encuentran bajo precauciones relacionadas con COVID-19 o aquellos de quienes se sospeche que puedan tener COVID-19.

Getting Here

Cooley Dickinson Hospital is located at 30 Locust Street (Route 9) in Northampton, Massachusetts. Visitors who need directions can use Google Maps and/or follow directions on our Locations & Directions page.

Parking

Visitors may park in lots A and H, the two large lots adjacent to the hospital’s Main Entrance, North Entrance and Emergency Entrance. Free valet service is available at both the Main and North Entrances. In addition, a few spaces are reserved at Women’s Health Midwifery Care for patients and visitors seeing providers or attending groups at the “yellow house.”

Visiting Information

Directly to the right as you enter through the Main Entrance there is a hospital information booth staffed by friendly, knowledgeable volunteers. In most cases, they can help you find what you’re looking for, and can provide you with printed directions to most hospital locations that you can carry with you.

Visiting Guidelines

At Cooley Dickinson Hospital, there are no set visiting hours, but visitors are asked to respect patients’ needs for a restful atmosphere. There is no discrimination in visitor access based on one’s sexual orientation or gender identity. This policy also strictly adheres to equal access for same-sex couples and same sex partners. In some cases, in the Critical Care Unit, Childbirth Center or other units, or at the patient’s request, visitation may be limited.

Cooley Dickinson Hospital is committed to providing the safest possible environment for its patients and staff, and for the community at large. We maintain the following visitation policies:

  • No one who is sick should visit.
  • The number of visitors should be limited to only those necessary for the patient’s comfort.
  • Visitors should clean their hands before and after their visit.
