The Birth Place at Iredell Memorial Hospital has enacted Controlled Access
— new security protocols with to help keep new moms and their infants
These are the steps for Controlled Access:
- When you are admitted to the hospital, the nursing staff will ask you for
a code word that you need to relay to family and friends you would like to visit.
- The Front Lobby (near the Pink Tea Room) elevators will no longer access
the 3rd floor- all visitors to The Birth Place will have to use the North
Wing elevators to reach the 3rd floor.
- A security attendant will greet visitors asking for patient name and code
word. The visitor will be given a visitor's sticker and allowed access
to The Birth Place when the accurate code word is given. We will limit
visitors to 4 people at a time.
Only YOUR children will be allowed to visit with you. We encourage you
to have extended family and friends visit when you get home.
