Visits from relatives and close friends are an important element in a patient’s recovery, yet patient care is our primary concern. To keep the hospital comfortable and quiet for all patients, visitors are asked to observe the following regulations.
- Please respect the wishes of the patient regarding the length of the visitation he or she would like.
- Please do not visit any patient if you have an infec-tious illness such as a cold or the ?u. Do not bring children who may be ill.
- Children are welcome to visit patients if an adult accompanies them. We ask that you limit visitors and keep noise levels to a minimum in respect for other patients.
- Visitors should respect the patient’s right to privacy by leaving the room during tests or treatments, or when the doctor or caregiver needs to see the patient.
Visiting hours are open. A family member will be allowed to stay with the patient, day or night, if the patient’s condition warrants constant attention. Pediatric patients may have a family member with them at all times.
Fathers or support person are welcome to stay anytime. Grandparents and immediate family visiting hours are 10 am to 7 pm. Friends and other visitors are welcome 11 am to 7 pm.
Family and friends may visit a hospice patient at any time.
