Visitation and Video Recording Policies
Visitors are not allowed if they have a cold, flu, or fever, or if they were recently exposed to a contagious disease.
Video Recording Policy
For the protection and privacy of our patients and staff, we allow videotaping and still photography during labor and delivery with the following restrictions:
- During the second stage of labor (full dilation) until after delivery of the baby, with permission from the obstetrical care provider and nursing staff.
- In the operating room during a cesarean section with permission from your delivery care team, including the anesthesia care provider, obstetrical care provider, pediatric care provider, and nursing staff.
- Outside the patient’s room with consent of the nursing and support personnel to ensure area is clear of other patients.
Please note: These devices may be used before and after the delivery of the infant with the expressed consent of all those being taped and/or photographed, including all Lowell General staff and physicians.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, feel free to ask your delivery care team.
