Please be considerate of the need for rest during the healing process and limit visitation according to your loved one’s wishes and needs. Feel confident and comfortable in all Stamford Health facilities because we are taking steps to ensure your safety and the safety of others. If you have any questions or concerns about visitation, please don’t hesitate to consult the patient’s care team.

Stamford Health continues to:

  • Require masks in all facilities
  • Follow standard and robust infection prevention measures
  • Monitor patients and staff for symptoms
  • Mandate COVID-19 vaccination action for all employees
  • Urge staff to stay home if they are not feeling well

Our Culture of Quiet

Rest is an important part of the healing process. In order to promote a restful and quiet environment, we observe daily quiet hours from 8 PM. to 6 AM. Please let the patient’s care team know if there’s anything we can do to ensure his or her quiet time is restful.

Smoking, Vaping and Tobacco Policy

To protect the wellbeing of our patients, staff and visitors, Stamford Health prohibits the use of all tobacco and vaping products in and around all Stamford Health buildings, properties, parking areas and on sidewalks. Thank you for complying.

Electronic Device Use

Please be courteous to those in and around a patient’s room when using electronic devices like cell phones, iPods, and handheld video games. We encourage the use of headphones when possible. If you have questions about usage, please ask a member of the patient’s care team.
