Welcome to Los Angeles Community Hospital at Bellflower. From the friendly people in the admitting office to the dedicated members of the environmental service staff— the Los Angeles Community Hospital at Bellflower City team of professionals is dedicated to providing for your health, comfort and convenience. We are very proud of the quality care we provide to patients and support to families. Most importantly, we are proud of our staff’s commitment to taking care of you and your loved ones.
Thank you for the privilege of caring for you.
Visiting a Patient
General visiting hours are from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, and from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Up to two visitors are allowed at a time per patient.
Visits by family members and friends are encouraged because they are important for the recovery. Although the circumstances for each patient are special, advanced consultation with the patient’s nurse is recommended.
Guidelines for Visitors
All visitors are required to wear a visitor identification band obtained from the Security Desk located in the lobby of the main hospital entrance on Artesia Blvd. Visitors are also encouraged to leave their personal belongings in their vehicles. In the event they need a place to store their belongings during their visit, free lockers are available for their use in the lobby.
When bringing items for the patient, please be aware that contraband items are inventoried, labeled and placed in the patient’s personal belongings area by a member of the nursing staff. Patients are entitled to retrieve the items upon discharge. These include, but are not limited to, alcohol and drug-related items, cell phones, any sharp/breakable items, etc.
The following guidelines aid not only in the health and safety of patients and their families, but our employees as well:
- Children under the age of 18 are not permitted as visitors, except in special circumstances with the approval of the nurse in charge. Arrangements will be made for children under the age of 18 to visit when indicated.
- Patients shall be limited to two visitors at one time.
- The Nurse Director/Charge Nurse may authorize special exceptions if a patient’s condition makes it necessary.
- Wash hands before and after visiting patients. Insist that healthcare providers do the same before caring for your loved one.
- For the safety of our valued patients and to prevent the spread of a contagious illness, we ask that visitors experiencing symptoms of cold, flu, or any contagious illness refrain from visiting patients.
- Keep voices down so that patients may rest.
- Visitors are not to wait in corridors. Please utilize approved waiting areas.
- Los Angeles Community Hospital at Bellflower’s goal is to be a tobacco-free campus. For the health of our patients, we ask visitors, physicians and employees to refrain from tobacco use while on the hospital grounds.
