IPFCC Challenges Hospitals to
Eliminate Restrictive Visiting Policies
Imagine being restricted from the bedside of a loved one because of hospital visiting policies. A growing number of hospitals are lifting those restrictions. But just opening the door isn't enough. Hospitals need to change the concept from families as "visitors" to families as partners in care.
The Better Together Toolkit contains a multitude of resources for you to use to change the concept of families as visitors. IPFCC staff and faculty also provide onsite education and coaching to hospitals to assist leaders, clinicians, and staff in changing restrictive visiting policies and practices to those that welcome families as essential partners in care.
