Family and Visitor Guidelines

Updated Visitor Guidelines

To prevent the spread of novel coronavirus, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has updated our visitor restrictions.

  • All visitors will be screened for new-onset runny nose, cough, shortness of breath or fever.
  • Inpatient and outpatient visitors will be restricted to one parent, guardian or primary caregiver only who does not have symptoms.
  • Outpatient visitors should avoid bringing siblings or other family members. Non-family members will not be permitted. Parents or siblings who are sick may be restricted from the hospital.
  • A Parent Pass is being provided to patient guardians to help reduce community density in our patient rooms. This will allow parents to visit with their child one at a time. Passes can be handed off between guardians at the front part of the lobby, in front of the Information Desk. We welcome parents and guardians to wait in the visitors’ tent outside the main entrance. You will be able to come inside to use the restrooms and to purchase food and drinks while in the tent.

We recognize that this is a difficult situation for many. Thank you for your patience.

Recomendaciones Actualizadas Para Las Visitas

Para evitar la propagación del nuevo coronavirus, en Children’s Hospital Los Angeles hemos actualizado las restricciones para las visitas.

  • Se examinará a todas las visitas que presenten nueva aparición de goteo nasal, tos, dificultad para respirar o fiebre.
  • Se limitan las visitas de pacientes hospitalizados y pacientes externos a únicamente una persona que no tenga síntomas: el padre o la madre, el tutor o el cuidador principal.
  • Las visitas de pacientes externos deberían evitar traer a hermanos u otros familiares. No se permite la entrada a las personas que no sean familiares. Puede restringirse el acceso al hospital a los padres y los hermanos que estén enfermos.

Reconocemos que esta es una situación difícil para muchas personas. Agradecemos su paciencia.
