Visitor Information

We Welcome Visitors and Offer These Guidelines:

The Ideal Visitor

  • makes sure there are only two visitors at one time. If others are already in the patient's room, the ideal visitor waits in the visitors’ lounge (located on each unit),
  • is in good health and washes hands before visiting,
  • remembers that the patient needs rest and limits visits to 10-15 minutes,
  • supervises children who are visiting,
  • leaves during an examination or treatment to ensure the privacy of the patient,
  • uses public restrooms located conveniently throughout the hospital rather than the patient’s private restroom,
  • is understanding when visiting is restricted by the nursing staff, physicians, or the patient,
  • dresses appropriately, always wearing shoes and a shirt.


We firmly believe visitors can play an important role in the recovery process. For this reason, your room number, location, and hospital visiting hours will be provided, upon request, to family and friends (except on the Psychiatric Unit). Individuals may phone the Information Desk at 240-566-3380 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. for your room number. Specific information regarding your condition is confidential and can only be released by you or your physician.

If you do not want your name and room released to callers or visitors, call the Registration Office at extension 3602 or 240-566-3602 to request a confidential status.

IN ACCORDANCE WITH STATE LAW AND HOSPITAL POLICY, SMOKING IS BANNED IN ALL AREAS OF FREDERICK MEMORIAL HOSPITAL.
