So, a question.

You have a family member/friend/co-irker/stalker/etc in the hospital for whatever reason. You decide to go visit said person. Would you even question being stopped, asked to sign in and put a visitors pass on?


I swear, today people have been acting like I want their mother's maiden name and SSN before letting them roam my floor to see their loved ones. All I ask is a visitor's pass on people, it ain't that hard.

    I'd be the opposite:  I'd give you a hard side-eye if you just let anyone start wandering through.  "Sure, come on in, y'all!"

    This is pretty standard for the maternity ward.  People just like having reasons to complain.

    No. But I like to know and to follow rules. Also, if I am in the hospital, I want veto power on who can come see me.

    No, not at all.  Last time I went to the hospital to visit someone,  I was prepared to sit outside on the bench for 10 minutes because it wasn't quite visiting hours yet (they let me in anyway).  Rules are there for a reason.

    is the visitor pass rule posted though the halls or at the entry point to the ward?

    i might be a little put out if i didn't know there was a rule (I've never visited anyone with a newborn) and felt like i was being harassed, but if it was clearly posted then i wouldn't have room to say anything. 

    when MIL had her heart attack a few years ago, we visited her in the hospital but never had to sign in /get a pass/etc. maybe the rules are different at our local hospital or in the cardiac vs maternity ward.

    H stayed the night with me when I had to stay. He didn't have a pass, came and went when he pleased, and clearly there were no visiting hours, because he was there through the night. I only thought about that part later.

    I don't know, but every unit I've worked with babies has something. You can't just wander in and out of our unit without some stopping to ask who you are here to see. One patient's sister was in a huff because she was here with preterm issues and stayed on L and D. She just came to our floor last night. Different floors, different routine. L and D doesn't have many newborns hanging around so we are more careful. Dur.

    People are dumb. I've always thought visitors passes were a great idea, especially in OB.

    Huh...I've never had to get a visitors pass.  My friend was laid up in the hospital with pre-term labor during flu season last year, so I had to verify to the parking attendant that I did not have any flu-like symptoms and had not in the past 48 hours.  And then they gave me a sticker!
