Visitation for patients in private rooms is unlimited unless this interferes with the care of the patient or the activities on the unit.
All visitors are required to conduct themselves in a quiet and calm manner.
Visitors are not permitted to utilize the patient’s bathroom. Public restrooms are located on all floors of the building.
The number of visitors is limited to two per patient for a semi-private room. Exceptions will be given with permission of the department Director/Manager or Nursing Supervisor.
All visitors under the age of 12 must be monitored directly at all times by a parent or other responsible adult while in the hospital to ensure their safety.
For the protection of the patients, any person with obvious signs of infection will be asked by the nurses to stop at the nurses station prior to visiting patients.
Visitors to patients in isolation must inquire at the nurses station for isolation instructions prior to entering the patient’s room.
Authorization for extended visitation may be granted to family members. All visitors who wish to remain in the hospital may do so after obtaining permission from the department Director/Manager or the Nursing Supervisor.
