Inpatient Visitor Age

We allow visitors as young as 12 years old to visit patients in the hospital. Children younger than 12 are allowed to see a parent or sibling in the hospital when accompanied by an adult.

Patient Escorts

If you’re coming to BID Milton for an outpatient appointment or procedure, you are allowed two visitors in addition to any essential escorts critical to your care.

Emergency Department Visitors

If you come to our Emergency Department for care, we encourage one family member or friend to stay with you. However, there may be times when they must wait outside the treatment area.

If your visitor must wait separately, you can give us permission to keep them informed about your care.

ICU patients do not have visitor restrictions.

Post-Anesthesia Care Unit

PACU patients may have visitors at the discretion of their care team.
