For the welfare and comfort of our patients, it is necessary to strictly enforce the following regulations. Your cooperation is appreciated.
  • For safety reasons, it is recommended that visitors do not remain when mothers are feeding their babies.
  • For their own protection and by order of the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health, children less than 13 years of age are not permitted to visit patients.
  • The presence of a large number of visitors inside the rooms and corridors will definitely create discomfort for the patients and in many cases, will hinder the movement of the medical team. Consequently, this presence might reflect badly on the patient's condition. For the patient's interest and comfort, the number of visitors and the visiting time should not exceed two visitors per patient for ten minutes only.
  • Encourage relatives and friends to defer their visits until the patient returns home.
  • If you are a patient not in a private room or suite, and your medical condition permits, please invite your guests to join you in the lounge to avoid disturbing the other patient in the room.
  • Relatives and family should not go to the operating room with the patient; they should wait in the patient's room.
  • Food restrictions: visitors are asked not to bring food for the patient.
  • No visitors are allowed beyond visiting hours.
Overnight Visitors
  • Relatives are not allowed to stay overnight, except in cases of critically ill patients.
  • For pediatric patients, one parent is allowed to stay with her/his child. We encourage the parent to remain in the child's room.
  • If you wish to request a guest bed, please do so as early as possible to ensure availability.
  • Guest beds are charged at a daily rate.
  • No overnight visitors are allowed in the Coronary Care Unit, Cardiac Surgery Unit, Intensive Care Unit, or Delivery Suite.
Cellular Phones
Cellular phones are prohibited in critical care areas (Coronary Care Unit, Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Department, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and Delivery Suites) and in rooms where patients are on life support equipment.

Noise Reduction
AUBMC endorses a noise reduction environment and, thus, encourages its patients and visitors to uphold a calm and favorable atmosphere.


Guidelines for the Prevention of Infection
  • Prevention from the Common Cold
    To prevent others from catching the common cold, an infected person should cover her/his nose and mouth with a handkerchief when sneezing or coughing. It is advisable that the infected person avoid visiting the patient.

  • Isolation Rooms
    Please follow the instructions posted at the isolation room door. Abiding by these preventive measures is important to ensure patient safety.

  • Using Hand Sanitizer when Hands Are Visibly Clean
    • Use a small amount of sanitizer.
    • Rub hands thoroughly for 15 seconds.
    • Make sure to cover all parts of hands, fingers, and fingernails.

  • Using Soap and Water
    • Wash hands to the wrists with water.
    • Use soap and rub firmly for 30 seconds.
    • Rinse hands thoroughly from soap.
    • Dry hands well with a clean paper towel.
    • Close the water faucet with the paper towel.

With the health and well-being of our patients as a priority, AUBMC was a pioneer in becoming a smoke-free institution on March 1, 1993. Please respect this policy and refrain from smoking anywhere in the Medical Center.
