VISITATION - The hospital's visitation policy was created to ensure our patients a quiet and safe atmosphere in which to recover. Visiting hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Each visitor is issued a pass at the front desk in the lobby upon arrival. Three visitors are allowed in a patient room at one time. For pediatric patients, two visitors and two family members are allowed in the room at one time. If all available passes for a particular room are taken, a visitor will be given the opportunity to call the patient's room to request that one visitor come down and allow another visitor to go up.
All children visitors under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. They may visit in the nursery viewing area during regular visiting hours and in patient rooms between 1:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. daily. Special consideration is given to siblings of newborn babies, who may visit in their mother's room at any time during regular visiting hours.
Only one person may spend the night with a patient. Permission must be granted by nursing personnel, and the person must stay in the patient's room. Exceptions to the visitation policy may be made for critically ill, laboring, emergency surgery and pediatric patients. Permission may be obtained from the nursing supervisor.
