Visitors are generally welcome between 8:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily.
Visiting children must be over 10 years old.
Any visitor exposed to or having a communicable disease (tuberculosis, measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis, impetigo, the flu or a cold) should not visit patients.
It is usually best to limit visitors to two at a time, to respect the comfort of all our patients. We encourage families to discuss scheduling their visits, in order not to overwhelm the patient by visiting all at one time. While support from loved ones is important, we also ask that visitors respect the patient's need for rest during their recovery. Discuss any unusual visiting circumstances with the patient's nurse, so that the hospital might accommodate any special arrangements based on the patient's specific situation.
The hospital recognizes the health benefits provided by the presence of loved ones while patients are in the hospital. We welcome one designated family member or support person to stay with the patient at any time. This designated support person's visits would only be limited by the patient's need for medical care or treatments, rest, privacy, and patient preference, including the roommate's preference. Bringing pillows and blankets are not allowed.
Visitors are not permitted to smoke while on hospital property, except in designated smoking shelters. Cellular phones may not be used within six feet of any electronic patient care equipment. We encourage you to check in with the nursing staff before sending or bringing flowers.
