The support of family and friends is critical in helping patients get on their way to feeling better. Below you’ll find important information on visiting hours and policies to help you plan your visit to one of our facilities. General visitation hours are 6 am until 8 pm each day. Our facility observes a quiet time from 2-4 pm to allow our patients time to rest and heal. We ask that visitors avoid visiting during this time if possible.

Visitation Policy & Hours

Visits may be limited or restricted in certain units or situations, including infection control limitations, disruptive behavior of visitors, patients or roommates and/or the need for patient rest or privacy. All of these circumstances may be considered clinically reasonable and necessary in the best interest of patient care, safety and wellbeing.

  • The main hospital entrance will be locked from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. After-hours admittance is through the emergency room entrance only.
  • All visitors are encouraged to stop at sanitation stations available throughout the hospital to sanitize hands.
  • We strongly discourage visitors during flu season for the protection of our patients.
  • In the best interest of the health and safety of patients and children, please refrain from bringing children under 12 years of age to visit patients.
  • A relative may need or want to stay overnight with a patient, so we recommend you talk with your nurse to make overnight arrangements. In private rooms, the guest may be either male or female. In semi-private rooms, however, the overnight guest must be the same sex as both patients in the room, and both patients must agree to the visitor. Guests may not use empty beds in semi-private rooms.

To ensure proper rest:

  • Visitors are permitted only during established visiting hours.
  • Visitors should respect the privacy of patients and leave the room during treatments.
  • Visitors are discouraged from bringing food or drink to patients.
  • In order to promote a healing environment for our patients and guests, Cullman Regional has adopted a tobacco-free campus policy. Tobacco-free means that the use of tobacco, of any kind (cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacoo, snuff, etc.) is prohibited in and around all facilities and property including sidewalks, parking areas and on and around our campus.

Critical Care Unit Visitation Guidelines

Due to the intensity of care and patient conditions, Critical Care Unit visiting hours are for immediate family only. No visitors under the age of 12 are allowed. Visitation is limited to 30 minutes, beginning at the following times:

10 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. | 2 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. | 9 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

  • Although we try to keep visiting times as accurate as possible, please understand that times could be delayed depending on procedures being performed in the unit at any given time.
  • Critical Care patients are only allowed to have one (1) chosen support person (e.g., family member, friend or trusted individual) stay with them at all times, unless it is medically or therapeutically contraindicated. For instance, visitors for patients with psychiatric or behavioral diagnoses are contraindicated.
  • The support person should check in with the nurse before entering the room.
  • No food or drinks may be brought into the patient room from outside the CCU.
  • At any time, if the patient’s care or sleep is disrupted or his/her physiological stress is increased, the visitor may be asked to leave.
  • Sleep/rest is a way for the body to heal. If the patient is sleeping during visiting hours, please do not wake them.
  • All communication will occur with the “Contact Person”, as indicated in the chart.
  • If the “Contact Person” is unable to come by at visitation and needs to call for an update, you may call 256-737-2475. Please understand that the nurse may not be able to come to the phone immediately, but will return your call as soon as we are able.

Maternity Center Visitation Policy

  • For patients who are not in labor, visitation is based on the patient’s condition.
  • Visitors cannot linger outside patient rooms or in hallways. There is a waiting room located outside the Maternity Center.
  • At the discretion of the nurse or physician, visitors may be asked to leave the room based on the patient’s condition.
  • Visitors with known or suspected infectious conditions will not be permitted.
  • The main hospital entrance will be locked from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. After-hours admittance is through the emergency room entrance only.
