For safety reasons, the hospital allows only two visitors at a time, and children under 12 years old are not allowed in the closed units (ICU, SICU and IMCU). In these sectors, the entry of food and clothing is prohibited, and it is possible to bring only personal hygiene items (soaps, toothbrush and toothpaste, comb and shampoo, among other similar items). 

In the other sectors, the visit of children under 12 years old will only be allowed with the presence of the legal guardian between 10 am and 11 am.

Can I accompany my family member?

Accompanying persons from closed units (ICU, SICU and IMCU) are not allowed; however, in private rooms, the possibility of accompanying the patient will depend on the health insurance plan. If it offers this convenience, only one companion can stay overnight in the room. The overnight stay includes bed/bath linen and breakfast. 

If the companion’s daily rate is not covered by the health insurance plan, a fee will be charged after the patient’s discharge.
