Visiting Policy and Hours
During your visit we ask that you remember that patients are here for the treatment of illness or injury and need their rest. No children under 12 are allowed above the first floor, except on 2NW where sibling visits are allowed. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Patients are allowed to receive three (3) visitors at a time. Visitors must wear proper attire at all times, i.e., shirt and shoes. It is asked that visitors limit their visits to thirty (30) minutes to allow adequate time for rest and treatment of the patient. Persons with elevated temperatures, colds, flu, and/or other infectious or contagious diseases are requested not to visit until free of symptoms. Overnight visiting may occur only with the prior approval of the Clinical Nurse Manager/Charge Nurse for the patient care unit. Policies for overnight visiting will be explained by the Clinical Nurse Manager/Charge Nurse.
