Visitor Sign-In


For everyone's safety, University Hospital and Golisano Children's Hospital require all visitors to present identification, preferably a photo ID, such as driver s license, as they enter the hospital. Family members and visitors will then receive a visitation ID sticker with their name and visit location.

Visitation ID stickers need to be worn at all times in the hospital. Visitation ID stickers are color-coded for each day of the week so stickers need to be replaced daily at the hospital information desk in the lobby.
