As of December 1, 2020 all hospital visitors are required to present their driver’s license at check-in. For those without a license, another form of photo ID will be accepted. The ID will be scanned to record name and address only, and visitor badges will be handed out along with COVID visitation guidance:
This additional information is being collected at the mandate of New York State’s Department of Health for contact tracing purposes. You may be asked additional questions at check-in when arriving for a visit, depending on current COVID restrictions and any changes to contact tracing requirements. At this time, the need for photo ID is only required for inpatient hospital visitation. F.F. Thompson Hospital’s Emergency Department is not allowing visitors with exception of pediatric patients and patients for whom a support person has been determined to be essential to care (medically necessary), including patients with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and patients with cognitive impairments, including dementia.
