ACMC Visitor Information
We at Ashley County Medical Center realize the value of family and friends when someone is in the hospital. We try very hard to see
that patients have visitors when they are hospitalized. Our first priority, however, is the care and treatment of each patient.
Dealing with this fact, many departments have different visiting situations per the care and treatment of their patients.

Because of the special nature of emergency medicine, a limited number of people are allowed in the ER with patients. Nurses and physicians
will use their knowledge of the situation to allow patients to have someone with them whenever possible. The entrances to the ER are locked
and can be opened only by hospital staff and the ER admission staff. ER staff will attempt to let patient’s families know when and how many
can come into the ER. Please realize that at times, the nature of emergency situations may require changes in previous visiting opportunities.
Critical Care Unit
For a map to the Critical Care Unit please click HERE
Our Critical Care Unit is located at the back of the hospital near the back east entrance. This unit allows for visiting with critically ill
patients per instructions with the doctor. Critical situation can arise during which visitors cannot be allowed in. If you are waiting to
visit a patient and the doors do not open and a nurse does not answer the buzzer located at the entrance, please go into the CCU waiting room
and wait for the CCU nurse to call and let you know you can now come in. There is a phone located in the waiting room with the unit’s number
listed. You may check in with the nurse here also, but be aware that at times the nursing staff may not be able to answer.
The number of people allowed in a patient’s room is limited by space and current medical situation. The nursing staff will work with families
to allow visitation, but once again the care of all the patients within the unit must be and will be the top priority.

This unit is located at the back of the hospital , just past the CCU. It is also a protected unit. Family members are welcome to visit patients
when they are not in therapy sessions. In the afternoon, after lunch, visitors may request to visit patients during their scheduled rest times.
Visitors are asked to call the unit if possible to assure that patients are not in various forms of individual therapy or if they are resting.
Day Surgery / Surgery

Family members often stay with their patients before procedures. During procedures families are asked to wait in the Surgery waiting, it is there
that the doctor or nurse will come and get you to inform you of your patient’s situation. After surgery, patients who will be returning home often
have someone stay with them until they are discharged. Patients who will require staying at least overnight will go to recovery, then be taken upstairs
to a Med-Surg room on the hospitals second floor. Family and visitors are allowed to stay with patients as the physician and charge nurse deem best
for the patient. As with any situation, the number of people in a patient’s room will be determined by the patient’s condition.
Med Surg Floor

Patients who are in the hospital for multiple days will probably be located on the hospital’s second floor. Visiting hours are regulated once again
by the condition of the patient. ACMC attempts to allow families to be with their patient as much as possible. The visiting situation will be
determined by the needs of the patient according to the medical staff. A waiting room is located across the hall from the east elevator and next
to the Nursery for your convenience.

mother, and any other medical conditions arising.
