Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Visitation Rights

Learn About Visiting Hours and Policies

As a loved one, we believe that your presence and support is valuable to the patient’s recovery. To provide support to our patients, we maintain an open visitation policy, rather than set visiting hours to accommodate our patients and their families and friends.

Visits are guided by the following policies, rights and responsibilities.

Policy

Patient care at our hospitals and facilities will be provided in an atmosphere that’s respectful and supportive of the integral role of loving relationships during hospitalization.

We will not restrict, limit or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. We will ensure that all visitors enjoy full and equal visitation privileges consistent with the patient’s preferences.

Visitation Rights

  • Patients may choose who may and may not visit them while in our hospitals and facilities.
  • Patients may withdraw or deny consent for visitation at any time.
  • The patient (or the patient’s support person) may limit the visiting privileges of his/her visitors, including providing for more limited visiting for some visitors than others.
  • We will not differentiate among visitors without a clinically necessary or reasonable basis for doing so.

Visitor Responsibilities

  • Children will be supervised in both the patient care and waiting areas by a responsible adult.
  • Please do not visit for 24 hours after showing signs of illness, such as:
    • Runny nose
    • Cough
    • Fever
    • Pink Eye
    • Diarrhea
    • Vomiting
  • All visitors will thoroughly wash or sanitize their hands before entering and after leaving the patient’s room and/or after contact with the patient.
  • The hospital may limit the number of visitors at one time at the patient’s bedside.

Justified Clinical Restrictions to Visitation

  • A court order limiting or restraining contact.
  • Behavior presenting a direct risk or threat to the patient, hospital staff or others in the immediate environment.
  • Behavior disruptive of the functioning of the patient care unit.
  • Reasonable limitations on the number of visitors at any one time.
  • Patient’s risk of infection by the visitor.
  • Visitor’s risk of infection by the patient.
  • Extraordinary protections because of a pandemic or infectious disease outbreak.
  • Substance abuse treatment protocols requiring restricted visitation.
  • Patient’s need for rest or privacy.
  • Need for privacy or rest by another individual in the patient’s shared room.
  • Clinical interventions, therapy or procedures where the health care provider believes limited visitation is best for the patient.
