Visitors Guide

We encourage loved ones to visit patients and we make every effort to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our patients and visitors. While receiving care, patients have the right to decide who may or may not visit, and those visitors are allowed without regard to race, color, national origin, language, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or socioeconomic status.

Do the little things that make each of you smile

Our staff and caregivers understand the important role that visitors and support persons play and every effort is made to ensure that our patients’ support person is embraced as a valued member of the care team.

  • To safeguard the comfort of all our patients, visitors are asked to talk quietly and leave promptly when visiting hours have ended.
  • The visiting times and/or the number of visitors may be limited in certain circumstances – and vary unit by unit – to protect the health, safety, and privacy of our patients.
  • If visitors are not feeling well or have an illness that can be transferred to our patients, please refrain from visiting.
  • Visitors must follow infection control precautions, keep noise to a minimum, refrain from taking photographs or videos, and comply with restrictions on smoking, alcohol and illegal substances.
  • Before entering and after leaving your loved one’s room, make sure to wash your hands.
  • All children must be in the company of a responsible adult and may not be left unattended.

Due to the severity of the H1N1 flu and its potential to spread to patients, children and expectant mothers, we are changing our hospital visitation policy. This policy will be in effect during the height of the flu season, usually lasting until spring, and will be re evaluated at that time.

  1. If you are sick or have a cold, cough or fever, we request that you please come back when you’re feeling better to visit your loved one.
  2. Effective November 2, 2009, visiting hours are limited to age 16 or older during the height of the flu season. Children under the age of 16 will not be allowed in the hospital. This is for the protection of the patients and to help prevent the spread of the flu. Patient safety is our priority.
  3. Each adult visitor must fill out the flu symptom checklist. If you are experiencing any flu like symptom you will not be allowed to visit the units. Again, this is for your protection and our patients. Thank you for your understanding.
