For the comfort and safety of our patients, we ask that visitors not overcrowd patient rooms. As a general rule, two or three visitors should be in a patient’s room at one time. Children under the age of 12 may visit with the permission of the nurse.
Recommended visiting times in the general care areas are from 8:00 am to 8:30 pm.
Please check with your nurse if you would like to have a relative or friend stay overnight in the patient room.
