Your Visitors

Visitor Policy

Designated caregivers, as determined by the patient and family, will be educated along with the patient in order to facilitate a return to wellness. They will be encouraged to spend as much time as needed with the patient, and to help with the care of the patient, by learning the needed skills to assist the patient upon discharge. There are times, however, when a patient's condition or care needs will require all visitors to leave the room. Your cooperation in these situations is appreciated and visitor waiting areas are available throughout the hospital. Additional guidelines are as follows:

While visits are welcomed, please consider your needs for rest and recovery.

In the best interest of the health of our patients, we ask visitors who have a fever, symptoms of a cold or the flu, or any type of communicable disease to refrain from visiting.

We believe it is important for you and your family to be comfortable communicating with your caregivers. Do not hesitate to ask questions or seek assistance when needed.

The number of visitors may be limited to two at a time in the Critical Care Unit and children under the age of 12 are discouraged.

Visits between the hours of 7 - 8 a.m. and 7 -8 p.m. are limited to RN discretion, to allow information to pass efficiently between shifts.

Visit the Heart Rock café where coffee is complimentary for our visitors.
