    If I could get a quick answer it would be appreciated. I just learned that my daughter is in this hospital. I would like to go in OC mode, but I don't know if it's allowed. Please advise and Thanks!

    Hope everything is well with your daughter.

    Regarding entering strange places that may or my not be OC friendly I usually take advantage of the following:

    1) Enter lawfully carrying concealed
    2) Complete the majority of your business
    3) Transition to open carry - take off jacket, use restroom and employ Virginia tuck, etc.
    4) Take care of any outstanding minor issues
    5) Leave with a smile

    Oh, and don't worry about security guards with magic wands - I have been searched a few times and have been passed through despite the beeps!

    Thanks to all who posted! My daughter is still in the hospital, but the good news is she is out of the ICU! Seems she has a bad kidney infection. You know these young folks, they wait to the last minute to seek help and by than it's so severe they get admitted to the hospital!

    Hopefully she'll be released this Friday!

    Ended up not carrying, just didn't have the time, I'm sure you all understand. However, I did not see any signs prohibiting guns, for what it's worth!

    Again, thank you ALL!

    Better to ask forgiveness than permission in cases like this.

    No mention of any other regulations.

    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    No mention of any other regulations. I don't see as how they can keep it out, it's a state owned hospital.
    Despite similar names, Mary Washington Hospital is not affiliated with the University of Mary Washington (UMW). Mary Washington Hospital is owned by a private not-for-profit corporation and as such can legally restrict firearms on their private property.

    What rlhsaid. I was hospitalized there several years and also thought the hospital was connected to the university as a "teaching" hospital. I was set straight on the relationship then.
