Suburban Community Hospital is a smoke-free campus in East Norriton. Patients and visitors are not permitted to smoke anywhere on the hospital grounds, including vehicles. Our campus is smoke-free to protect the health and wellness of patients, visitors, and colleagues.
During your stay, we strive to provide you with excellent clinical care delivered with compassion and respect.
We encourage loved ones to visit patients and we make every effort to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our patients and visitors. While receiving care, patients have the right to decide who may or may not visit, and those visitors are allowed without regard to race, color, national origin, language, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or socioeconomic status.
Our staff and caregivers understand the important role that visitors and support persons play and every effort is made to ensure that our patients’ support person is embraced as a valued member of the care team.
- To safeguard the comfort of all our patients, visitors are asked to talk quietly and leave promptly when visiting hours have ended.
- The visiting times and/or the number of visitors may be limited in certain circumstances – and vary unit by unit – to protect the health, safety, and privacy of our patients.
- If visitors are not feeling well or have an illness that can be transferred to our patients, please refrain from visiting.
- Visitors must follow infection control precautions, keep noise to a minimum, refrain from taking photographs or videos, and comply with restrictions on smoking, alcohol and illegal substances.
- Before entering and after leaving your loved one’s room, make sure to wash your hands.
- All children must be in the company of a responsible adult and may not be left unattended.
We support the philosophy of open visiting hours (24 hours a day/7 days a week) when possible. To ensure the well-being and safety of our patients and caregivers, we ask you to please follow our visitation policy:
- Suburban Community Hospital does not allow visitors under the age of 13 (18 for Intensive Care and Critical Care Units). Exceptions to this policy can be made by the treating healthcare provider for end-of-life and other humanitarian situations.
- For the sake of all our patients please do not visit if you are sick. If you have fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, please postpone your visit until you are feeling better.
- Visitors are limited to three (two in Intensive Care and Critical Care Units) per patient per visiting period. This applies to inpatient rooms and when accompanying patients to the emergency department. Visitors in semi-private rooms should be considerate of both patients.
- Visits should be kept short. Visitors should maintain a quiet environment and avoid unnecessary noise.
- Visitors may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.
