Visitation Guidelines

Update: 10.21.2022

Hospice of Orange & Sullivan Counties has been closely monitoring and maintaining CDC guidance and New York State Department of Health (DOH) regulations regarding patient-family visitation. Our highest priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our patients, visitors, and staff.

Visiting Hours:  8:30am -7:00pm

 General Visitation Guidelines

  • Visitors are encouraged to have been vaccinated for COVID-19 and the flu.
  • Visitors will be prescreened for temperature and exposure risks prior to each visit.
  • Visitors must wear KN-95 masks (no cloth masks) within the Residence, at all times, including patient rooms. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one for you.
  • Social distancing is encouraged during peak times of visitation.
  • For patients with large gatherings of family and friends, visitation of two-at-a-time will be structured in time intervals throughout the day or night to accommodate and optimize the quality of visitation experience, while maintaining safety.
  • Notify Residence Nursing Director or Charge Nurse if at any point after visitation, you become symptomatic or test positive for COVID-19 or the flu.
  • Exceptions to the visitation policy are made when death is close or on a case-by case basis with approval of the Residence management team.
