Revised Visitor Policy

Updated October 15, 2021

Emergency Department
Safety for our patients, their loved ones and our staff is our top priority. Due to an increased rate of transmission and community spread of COVID-19, one visitor per patient is permitted in the ED and/or waiting room, pending the discretion of the Emergency Department staff.

  • Exceptions will be made for visitation in the ED with pediatric patients, patients with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, and patients with cognitive impairments including dementia.

General Visitation to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital
At this time, we are still allowing in-person visitation to our inpatients based on guidelines from the New York State Department of Health. However, only two visitors per patient can visit between the hours of 11 am and 8 pm. These two visitors cannot rotate with other visitors throughout the day. In addition, patients who have tested positive for COVID are not permitted to have visitors. 

Additionally, one visitor may accompany a patient to surgical and procedural areas.

Support persons are still allowed at a patient’s bedside for:

  • Patients in Labor & Delivery
  • Pediatric patients
  • Patients for whom a support person has been determined to be essential to the care of the patient (medically necessary), including patients with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and patients with cognitive impairments including dementia
  • Patients in imminent end-of-life situations

All visitors must adhere to screening, hand washing and infection control guidelines. A mask must be worn at all times, including in the patient’s room, and no eating or drinking is permitted in patient’s room. However, visitors are welcome to visit and dine in the cafeteria while maintaining social distancing.


No Smoking

An abstract (from the Latin "referre" - to report, to report) is a small written work devoted to a certain topic, a review of sources in a certain direction. Usually the purpose of an abstract is to collect and systematize knowledge on a specific topic 500 word essay or problem. The topic of the essay should captivate, first of all, the student himself, because he will have to work hard on its disclosure. Topics for essays are usually suggested by teachers. The student chooses an interesting topic for him from the general list and coordinates his choice with the teacher.

For the health of its staff, patients, and visitors, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital is a smoke-free environment. Smoking is not permitted anywhere at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital including the parking lots and the grounds.
