Sutter Amador Hospital has an open visitation policy to provide patients with visitation options that work best for them, their families and loved ones. Visitors are welcome 24-hours a day. Our nursing staff will work with patients and visitors around visitation. Visitation by children is based on individual circumstances including the age of the children and the condition and prognosis of the patients.
Tobacco and Smoke Free Policy
The Sutter Amador Hospital campus is a tobacco and smoke free campus as of January 1, 2009. This means that the use of tobacco in any form and all smoking is prohibited anywhere on the hospital campus.
For a nominal fee, your visitors can order meal trays to be served in your room at patient meal times. If a guest tray is desired, have your friend or a family member visit the cafeteria cashier and pay for the meal. Then, they should obtain a menu from the nurses’ station in your unit, make a selection and return the completed menu to the nurses’ station. The guest tray will be delivered during your mealtime.
