Family and Guest Visiting

Our healthcare team understands that having family and friends around is important to the healing process. Your family is welcome anytime, but we do ask guests to follow the guidelines below.

For more information or to check on the status of your loved one, call 765.675.8500.

Can children come?

In general, it is a good idea to check with a guest relations associate before bringing a child visitor. Children younger than age 14 must be accompanied by an adult, other than the patient, at all times. Some units may require health screens or have other limitations on children visiting.

If someone is sick, can they visit?

For your protection, people should not visit if they are sick, especially if they have a sore throat, cold or fever.

How do we make sure patients get the rest they need?

We want to make sure that all of our patients are able to rest. Please keep voices low. If anyone is bothering others they may be asked to leave.

Is smoking allowed?

All IU Health facilities are smoke-free. For the safety of everyone, smoking is not allowed in any IU Health building or on the grounds.

What is the IU Health alcohol and drug policy?

All IU Health facilities are alcohol and drug-free.

What is the IU Health firearm policy?

It is the policy of Indiana University Health that no one, other than IU Health Security Officers or on-duty Law Enforcement Officers, carry or have in their possession a firearm or weapon while in a IU Health facility. Law enforcement officers should check in with IU Health Security if they plan to carry on premises.
