Things are unpredictable these days. Visitation restrictions may change at any time in response to federal or state regulations. We will do our best to provide as much advanced notice as possible of these changes. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Emergency Room, Surgery and Inpatients (OB, Acute, ICU):

  • At the beginning of the patient visit, they will be asked to identify two healthy adult "patient supporters" who will be available to accompany them on their medical visit, surgery, birthing, or hospital stay. One patient supporter is allowed to visit at a time. The patient’s supporters name will be provided to the screening desk to allow entrance to visit during visiting hours.

  • Normal visiting hours: 8 am to 8 pm

  • Visitors will be identified at the screening table and provided a sticker to wear indicating visitor/ date and instructed to report to the appropriate patient care area or ED registration area.

  • Visitors must be at least 18 years of age

  • Pediatric patients will be allowed one parent/guardian to stay with the patient throughout the admission and two healthy adult “patient supporters” that may visit one at a time during visiting hours.

  • COVID-19 rule out or positive patients are not allowed visitors in the ED, Surgery, or Inpatient Unit. Telecommunication tools can be used for family visitation. Exceptions may be made in regard to end-of-life and compassionate care.


Visitation is allowed by appointment only and must follow CDC guidelines. Call 775.304.9655 for a 30-60 minute appointment. All visitors must be screened at the main entrance before entering. Visitation will be limited to two visitors per resident. Visitation will take place in a visitation room or outside. The area will be cleaned before and after each visit. Face coverings must be worn. If CMS records the county at a 10% positivity rate or we have a COVID-19 patient in the hospital, visitation will cease until a decrease in the positivity rate occurs. Staff will provide additional visit requirements at the time the appointment is made.

Outpatient Departments - Clinic, Lab, and Imaging
