The love and support that comes from our patients' families and friends is an important part of the healing process. However, it is equally important for each patient to rest and for our medical staff to be able to administer the best possible care. For these reasons, we have structured visiting hours and policies.
Visiting hours and regulations have been established for each unit. Check at the information desk or a nurse's station for specific regulations for a particular department.
Visitors may be asked to leave the room during a test or treatment or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.
Visitors should check at the nurses' station before bringing gifts of food or drink to patients. Please check to see that your gift is appropriate.
Any personal information about a diagnosis and treatment must come from the patient's doctor. This information is only available to members of the family who the patient designates. Information can be given per telephone with identification of the "password".
A guest may not stay overnight with a patient in a semi-private room. If it is necessary for a guest to stay overnight with a patient, the patient is required to be in a private room. Immediate family of ICU patients will be permitted to rest in the ICU waiting room from 10 p.m. - 6 a.m.
