Piedmont Rockdale Visitor Information

Care Partner Policy (Updated October 5, 2022)

A Care Partner may be a relative, partner, friend or anyone (over age 16) that the patient chooses to have at their side during care. A Care Partner takes an active role in caring for their loved one in the hospital.

We encourage you to use digital resources to connect with your loved ones in the hospital and to assist them in their care. Below are free resources that are available to use.

Virtual Visiting Resources


Effective October 5, 2022, visitors under the age of 16 are not routinely allowed unless an exception is approved by the relevant unit/department leader or Patient Experience/Nursing Supervisor.

  • We encourage no more than two visitors in a room at a time during the routine visiting hours from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. (some units may have more restrictive hours). Overnight visitors are allowed in certain units but must be present before visiting hours end at 9:00 p.m.
  • Waiting rooms may re-open, but social distancing between families will be expected.
  • For visitor issues (disrespectful behavior, non-compliance with mask-wearing, not adhering to visiting hours), call 4444 to help deescalate issues and expectation setting or remove the visitor from the facility.
  • Contact Patient Experience (3395) or Public Safety (3838) for end-of-life visitation if crowd management is needed.

Some departments have limitations to visitation hours and/or number of support persons allowed per patient:
