Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital

At Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, our top priority is protecting the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff. We continue to evaluate our visitor policy to ensure everyone’s safety.

Please do not visit, for the safety of your loved one and the rest of our patients, if you have:

  • A cold or respiratory infection
  • Fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, runny nose or sneezing, chills, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, body aches, sore throat, diarrhea or new loss of taste or smell
  • Been exposed to COVID-19

Visitor Policies

  • You must wear a well-fitted mask at all times in our emergency departments and urgent care centers. This guidance applies to all staff members, visitors and patients.
  • Masks are generally not required, but are strongly recommended, for patients and visitors in all other areas of Cedars-Sinai facilities. However, based on certain clinical conditions, you may be required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) for your safety. Please follow the guidance of the care team.
  • Our staff will remain masked in all areas where you, your loved ones or any of our patients are receiving care, such as in a patient’s room or an exam room.
  • Visitors are also encouraged to avoid crowding and practice hand hygiene.
  • Any visitors, including medically trained visitors, should not contradict the caregiver’s orders or interfere with the plan of care but may help facilitate communication.

Visiting Patients with Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19 Infection

Inpatients at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection, including end-of-life patients, are allowed one healthy visitor per day for a maximum of two hours at a time. Overnight stays are not allowed.

If you do visit a patient with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection, you must:

  • Be free of COVID-19 symptoms and always wear a well-fitted mask at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital
  • Check-in at the nurses station upon arrival and before entering a patient room.
  • Always wear personal protective equipment (PPE) while in the room with the patient. This includes gowns, gloves, eye protection, and a mask (respirator). The patient’s nurse can demonstrate the appropriate way to wear and remove this protective equipment. Wearing PPE incorrectly increases your risk of contracting COVID-19 infection.
  • Always wash your hands immediately after removing PPE.
  • Remain physically distant from healthcare workers and other visitors and patients.
  • Go directly to the patient’s room and not congregate in hallways, waiting rooms, or other areas.
  • Not enter and exit the room multiple times during your visit.
  • Not eat or drink indoors at any time.
