For Visitors

Visitors bring comfort to patients and their families and we want you to feel welcome at Grundy County Memorial Hospital. Visitors are welcome and the nurse supervisor or nurse caring for the patient can help advise as to how many visitors are appropriate and the best time to visit. 

Our focus is to assist our patients to a healthy recovery and to provide the best quality care possible. We know that the support of family and friends plays a vital role in the recovery process.

In this section, you'll find helpful visitor guidelines and valuable visitor information that we hope will make your visit to Grundy County Memorial Hospital - UnityPoint Health as convenient and comfortable as possible. If you can't find the information you're looking for here, our hospital volunteers or team members will be glad to help you.

Some Basic Guidelines

We are always pleased to have family and friends visit. We ask you to do these things for the safety and comfort of patients, families and staff:
  • Wash your hands or use alcohol sanitizer before and after visiting.
  • Help us keep patient floors and rooms quiet.
  • Postpone your visit if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to a contagious disease.
  • Please step out of the room if we ask for patient privacy during exams or tests.
  • Ask us for help any time you would like assistance.

Mask / Face Covering Guidelines

UnityPoint Health has updated its masking guidelines. At this time, masking is now based on personal preference. Patients and visitors should mask in our facilities if they are currently ill with respiratory symptoms, have a COVID-19 diagnosis, or have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 10 days. Masking is strongly recommended when community transmission levels are high. We encourage anyone who prefers to continue masking to do so.
