Memorial Regional Hospital Visiting Hours and Policies We encourage visits from family and loved ones during healthcare services. Policies We take security very seriously. Our comprehensive policies protect our health care patients, visitors and employees. For safety reasons, we require all adult visitors to have photo identification. Security will print a photo pass that will allow you to visit a patient. Gift Policies Visitors should check with the nurse before bringing gifts of food or drink to a patient, as the patient may be on a special diet. If a patient is in the intensive care unit, please check with the unit staff before bringing any gifts, flowers or food.
