The Hospital embraces a philosophy of open and flexible visitation that welcomes and encourages the involvement of family and significant others
in the patient’s care. Accordingly, the Hospital has adopted this Statement on Patient Visitation Rights:
General Visiting Guidelines:
General Visiting Hours – 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM
Children must be in the care of a responsible adult other than the patient.
Hospice - To the extent possible, visitors of Hospice patients shall be allowed unrestricted visiting privileges, including, but not limited to, children of all ages.
Intensive Care/Critical Care (ICU/CCW) - Generally visitation is encouraged during the following hours; however, a more flexible visitation can be arranged. 8:30AM to 9:30AM; 12:30PM-1:30PM; 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM; 8:30 PM to 9:00 PM. Only 3 visitors shall be allowed to visit at one time. Due to infection control concerns, it is preferred that children under the age of 12 not be allowed to visit; however, special considerations can be made based on patient status.
The Health & Rehabilitation Center - Generally visitation is encouraged during the following hours; however a more flexible visitation can be arranged. Monday through Friday 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM; Saturday 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM; Sunday 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM
PACU - Visiting shall not be permitted except in specific unusual circumstances, ie: inconsolable children, patients requiring long recovery periods or overnight stays.
Women’s Services - Visitors shall be limited to the mother’s choice and must follow proper hand washing procedures. Siblings shall be permitted; however, visits shall be limited if recent illness has been experienced. Visitors shall be asked to leave after 9:00 PM.
During the birthing phase, it is understandable that family and visitors may increase for immediate viewing after delivery. If the mother requires recovery from surgery, there will be a one-visit limit. In the event of an emergency c-section or epidural/spinal anesthesia administration, visitors shall be required to leave during the procedure.
A.No plants or flowers shall be allowed in Critical Care or Oncology unit.
B.For safety and privacy reasons, when visiting a patient, guests must be in the patient’s room and not in the hallways or doorways. If there are too many guests which may comprise the staff’s ability to provide care to the patient, the guest may be directed to the waiting rooms provided in the patient care area.
C.Visitors shall not be permitted to sleep in empty beds in semi-private rooms, in lobby/waiting areas or in the patient’s bed.
D.Children 12 years or older may stay overnight with an adult patient at the discretion of the staff.
E.Adults staying overnight with minors shall be parents, guardians or other adults authorized by the parent or guardian to stay with the minor.
