We ask visitors to UPMC Mercy to observe the following general guidelines, as well as any other guidelines noted by your loved one’s patient care team:

  • Visitors must enter only the area they are visiting.

  • Wash hands with soap and water prior to entering your loved one’s room.
  • Visitors who have an active communicable infection — such as an upper respiratory, viral, or skin infection — or infectious diarrhea, should not visit. Doing so could compromise your loved one’s recovery.
  • No more than two people should visit with a patient at one time.
  • If you have a special request regarding visiting hours, talk with your loved one’s nurse.
  • For infection control reasons, live flowers, plants, and fresh fruit are not permitted in critical care units. Check with your loved one’s nurse to see what is permitted.
