Before visiting a patient, please read our Hospital Visitor Policy During
Patient care is our primary concern and, in order to enhance the quality
of care, specific visiting hours and regulations have been established
for each unit.
Preferred visiting hours are from 10a-8p on all Medical/Surgical units.
Each patient is limited to two (2) visitors at one time. However, adult
accompanied siblings may visit on postpartum and pediatric units. Visitors
in semi-private rooms should be considerate of both patients.
In order to maintain a restful environment for the patient and allow for
nursing care, visiting hours in the Intensive Care Units (ICU) are limited
to 5-10 minutes per hour. Children under 12 are generally not permitted,
per hospital policy, in the ICU. Children under 13 are generally not permitted
in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU).
Nursing staff may use discretion to alter these restrictions as warranted
by patient condition. Visitors may be asked to leave the room during tests
or treatments or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.
