Visitation

The current visitation policy at North Tampa Behavioral Health aligns with the No Patient Left Alone Act, signed by Governor Ron DeSantis on April 6, 2022. Normal visitation days/times remain suspended however, an appointment can be scheduled to visit your loved one if compliant with the criteria in the No Patient Left Alone Act.

No Patient Left Alone Act

Governor Ron DeSantis signed SB 988, the No Patient Left Alone Act, to guarantee Florida families the fundamental right to visit their loved ones who are receiving care in hospitals, hospices, and long-term care facilities. No health care facility in Florida may require a vaccine as a condition of visitation and every health care facility must allow their residents and patients to be hugged by their loved ones

SB 988 states that all hospitals, hospices, and long-term care facilites visitation policies and procedures must allow for in-person visitation in all of the folloing circumstances, unless the resident, client, or patient objects:
  • End-of-life situations.
  • A resident, client, or patient who was living with family before being admitted to the provider’s care is struggling with the change in environment and lack of in-person family support.
  • A resident, client, or patient is making one or more major medical decisions.
  • A resident, client, or patient is experiencing emotional distress or grieving the loss of a friend or family member who recently died.
  • A resident, client, or patient needs cueing or encouragement to eat or drink which was previously provided by a family member or caregiver.
  • A resident, client, or patient who used to talk and interact with others is seldom speaking.
  • For hospitals, childbirth, including labor and delivery.
  • Pediatric patients.
Additionally, the bill allows a resident, client, or patient the option to designate a visitor who is a family member, friend, guardian, or other individual as an essential caregiver. The provider must allow in-person visitation by the essential caregiver for at least 2 hours daily in addition to any other visitation authorized by the provider.
