Patients & Visitors

Staying calm improves care

For your upcoming visit to Northern Light Inland Hospital, please remember that calmness helps healing. Our staff are here to help, and other patients appreciate a quiet space that helps people relax and focus on their health and care. Family members and other visitors, patients, and our staff, are all encouraged to focus on healing. Let’s help each other.

Visitation Guidelines - effective April 20, 2023

Visitation hours are 10 am – 8 pm, seven days a week. We kindly ask all visitors to refrain from visiting if they have any symptoms of illness as this puts patients and staff at risk. Patients suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 cannot have in-person visitors unless approved by Nursing leadership. 

Masks are optional in most areas of our facilities for most people, but there are some exceptions. Facemasks are required in our Infusion Center. Also, masks are required for patients, staff, and visitors if they have:
  • signs of respiratory illness (with or without fever) such as congestion, cough, runny nose, and sore throat
  • been diagnosed with respiratory illness (COVID-19, flu, etc.)
  • had a known exposure to COVID-19 (within 10 days)

If you choose to wear a mask, you may bring your own if you choose. However, in areas where masks are required and for those who have screened positive for illness, we will ask you to wear a mask provided by our facility. The masks we provide have been selected based on specific criteria to meet infection prevention standards.
