We encourage your family members and friends to visit. Maintaining close contact with loved ones is an important adjunct to your well-being. Visitors should be considerate and respectful of other patients and hospital personnel, and comply with the hospital’s rules and regulations.
The hospital allows for the presence of a support individual of the patient’s choice. This individual may or may not be the patient’s surrogate decision-maker or legally authorized representative. These visitors, as designated by the patient, may include, but are not limited to a spouse, a domestic partner (including same-sex domestic partners), another family member, or a friend.
The hospital will not restrict, limit or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. The hospital will ensure that all visitors enjoy full and equal visitation privileges consistent with patient preferences.
Patients may receive visitors all hours of operation at the discretion of the patient and/or the patient’s nurse/physician based on clinical status. Children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult visitor.
Visitors may remain overnight in the patient’s room. Whenever possible, a recliner chair will be provided for the visitor(s). Hospital beds may not be used by visitors. Visitors are asked to remain primarily in the patient’s room. The patient also has the right to withdraw or deny consent for visitors at any time.
In the Intensive Care Unit, immediate family members may visit patients at any time for short periods but must request permission to enter before doing so. Please proceed to the second floor, enter the Solarium, and use the intercom to contact the ICU directly.
