Scheduling & Visitor Restrictions

Visitor Restrictions

Placentia-Linda Hospital is committed to taking the necessary and critical steps to ensure that the patients, visitors and staff in our hospitals are safe and remain healthy.

Number of Visitors Allowed Per Patient:

  • Visitor Hours: 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, 7 days per week
  • Emergency Department: one (1) visitor per patient
  • Outpatient Procedures/Elective Surgery: one (1) visitor per patient
  • Inpatient – NON-COVID: two (2) visitors per patient. Additional accommodations are to be approved on a case-by-case basis.
  • Inpatient – COVID Positive or Patient Under Investigation: Visitors are not permitted
  • Imaging Center: Visitors are not permitted unless the patient is a minor or requires assistance with registration

Upon entry to the hospital:

  • Visitors must check-in at the entrance with the security guard. If two visitors are checked in for the day, the third visitor will have to be cleared by the guard prior to entering.
  • Visitors will be given the “Visitor Expectations” handout upon arrival to provide education on hospital standards during visitation.
  • Visitors are allowed in the cafeteria for purchases. However, visitors must eat outside or in the car. Eating in patient rooms are not permitted.
  • Visitors are allowed in the Gift Shop. The staff will limit the volume of patrons and require hand hygiene prior to entering.

These measures will be in effect until we are advised by the CDC or the Orange County Health Care Agency that it is safe to return to normal visiting practices. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

We cannot give you medical advice via phone or e-mail. If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, contact your physician or other healthcare professional and self-quarantine. In the case of a medical emergency, such as difficulty breathing, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room immediately.

We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.


An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
