No Patient Left Alone

Purpose: In-Person Visitation bill has been signed into law on April 6, 2022, Governor Ron DeSantis, creating Section 408.823 of the Florida Statutes titled “In-person Visitation”, and may be cited as “No Patient Left Alone Act.”


It is our policy to comply with the No Patient Left Alone Act as signed in to law by Governor Ron DeSantis on April 6, 2022. This new law guarantees that our residents have the fundamental right to visit their loved ones while receiving care in hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and intermediate care facilities for the developmentally disabled (long-term care facilities). No health care facility in Florida may require a vaccine as a condition of visitation and every health care facility must allow their residents and patients to be hugged by their loved ones.

All hospitals, hospices, and long-term care facilities visitation policies and procedures must allow for in-person visitation in all the following circumstances, unless the resident, client, or patient objects. This policy allows:

  • End-of-life situations.
  • A resident, client, or patient who was living with family before being admitted to the provider’s care is struggling with the change in environment and lack of in-person family support.
  • A resident, client, or patient is making one or more major medical decisions.
  • A resident, client, or patient is experiencing emotional distress or grieving the loss of a friend or family member who recently died.
  • A resident, client, or patient needs cuing or encouragement to eat or drink which was previously provided by a family member or caregiver.
  • A resident, client, or patient who used to talk and interact with others is seldom speaking.
  • For hospitals, childbirth, including labor and delivery.
  • Pediatric patients

We allow resident, client, or patient the option to designate a visitor who is a family member, friend, guardian, or other individual as an essential caregiver. The we allow in-person visitation by the essential caregiver for at least two hours daily in addition to any other visitation authorized by the provider. Please see the front desk or Executive Director if you need assistance with becoming an essential caregiver.
