What to Expect During Your Stay

Hospital Stay

Our physicians need to know what prescription and/or over-the-counter medications the patient is currently taking. Please bring a list of medications upon arrival at the hospital. Make sure to denote dose, strength and time administered. Patients are encouraged to leave their valuables at home. Any valuables brought to the hospital should be disclosed to your nurse so they may be included on an inventory and locked in the hospital's safe for security.

Kentfield does not routinely provide accommodations to visitors or families for overnight stays or extended visitation, unless prescribed by a physician.

Smoke Free

Kentfield Hospital is a smoke free facility. No smoking is permitted on the grounds of the hospital.

Visiting Hours

Regular visiting hours are designated from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, seven (7) days a week. Additional times can be arranged through the nursing staff at the physician’s discretion. We ask you limit two (2) visitors per patient in the patient’s room at any one time. Group visits can occur in the hospital's lobby, the patient quiet room or on the outdoor deck, weather permitting.

No person under 12 years old is permitted in a patient's room that requires isolation precautions. No children under 2 years of age is permitted in a patient's room.

Visitors must use thoughtful consideration of each patient’s need for rest and keep the volume of their voices low. 

Food Services

A complete and nutritious diet is essential to a patient’s recovery. The food service manager and dietician are available to speak with anyone with questions, special needs or preferences.

The hospital food consists of fresh home cooked items with attention given to a variety of dishes. Each patient is able to select food items from a menu daily. Kentfield strives to make restricted diets interesting, and special holidays are recognized.

Due to possible diet restrictions, the patient’s family needs to check with the nurse before bringing food or beverages to the patient.

Visitors are invited to purchase meals in the cafeteria. Please refer to posted signs for specific hours and menu selections.
