Updated Visitation Policy

At Stony Brook Medicine and Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, our priority is the health and safety of our patients and their families. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have revised our visitor policies for all of our locations in order to keep our patients, families and staff safe. While we understand the important role that family members and visitors play in a patient’s healing process, our goal is to keep a safe environment for all. Visitors will be screened. If you are visitor with a cough and/or temperature, you will be asked to leave. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

Equal Visitation Policy

In support of each patient’s rights, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital allows patients to receive visitors that the patient designates including, but not limited to a spouse, domestic partner (including same sex domestic partner), family members or friends for emotional support during the course of his/her stay.

Patients are able to withdraw or deny such consent at any time. Stony Brook Southampton Hospital prohibits discrimination against visitors based on age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, physical or mental disability, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression.

Visitors designated by the patient (or support person, where appropriate) do not have to be related to the patient and shall enjoy visitation privileges that are not more restrictive than those that immediate family members would enjoy.  This includes an identified caregiver, who would be expected to provide after-care assistance at home following discharge.
