Samaritan Healthcare recently updated our policies and information for visitors and support persons to allow additional access. We continue to follow CDC recommendations to protect our patients, staff, and community from potential exposure to COVID-19. Please review the policies (below) before visiting the hospital or clinics.
Support Person: An individual who is in a support role for a patient or who is legally responsible for making healthcare decisions on behalf of a patient. The support person may include a family member, friend, or another individual who is there to support the patient and serves an essential role in the care of the patient. The role of a support person is not limited to a relationship that is legally recognized in Washington. The designation of a support person is not intended to supplant Washington law concerning the patient’s legal representative.
Visitor: Friend, family member, or loved one wanting to visit with a patient.
