Special Guests and Visitors

Guests and visitors from the community can often be the highlight of a child's hospital stay or clinic visit. In order to make this a positive experience for our patients and families, and for our guests, we have set some necessary guidelines. Highlights of these guidelines are:

  1. All visitors need to be 16 years or older to make a visit.
  2. The group should consist of 10 people or less.
  3. Groups or individuals considering a visit to Children's Hospital will need to complete a "guest form" prior to the visit.
  4. The visit will consist of approximately one hour.
  5. Guests and visitors may request specific areas for their visit: inpatient, clinics or C.A.R.E.S. unit (Children's Ambulatory Recovery and Express Services).
  6. Arrangements must be made at least two weeks in advance of the visit.
  7. Exceptions to our guidelines can be made, yet our final decision will be based on maintaining the privacy and well-being of our patients, maintaining a healing environment, and ensuring the visit is for the benefit of the children and not for the visitor's/guest's personal gain.

If you are considering a visit to Children's Hospital, please contact our Guest and Visitor Coordinator at (402) 955-5325 to discuss our complete criteria and to request a "Guest Form."
