Visitor Policy

Spending Time with Your Loved One

Your loved ones are in good hands. Our staff members are devoted to providing safe, high quality compassionate care. That compassion and concern for the well-being of our patients extends to family members, loved ones and visitors. We see you as a partner who shares our goal of helping your loved one heal.

 

Support Persons

For many patients, support from friends, family and loved ones is more than appreciated, it’s essential for providing the encouragement, communication and reassurance needed to boost morale and encourage healing. That’s why support person(s) are considered a key part of a patient’s health care team. If you are a designated support person please view more detailed information on your role as a member of your loved one’s health care team.

 

Policies

The Hospital welcomes every individual regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, marital status, military/veteran status or disability. We recognize and respect the visitation rights of all spouses and partners including same-sex spouses and domestic partners.

 

Mobile Phones

For your convenience, you are welcome to bring and use your mobile telephone within the hospital. However, in the event that the use of a personal electronic device risks interfering with patient care we will ask you to limit or refrain from using it. Please help us create a quiet, peaceful environment by setting your mobile phone to vibrate.

 

Visitor Responsibilities

The Hospital is committed to providing a safe, healing environment for patients and their families. To make this possible we need your assistance in the following ways:

  • Our patients’ ability to protect themselves from germs and disease is compromised. Exposure to additional illness may complicate the healing process and place them at risk. If you are not feeling well or have an illness that could be transferred to our patients please refrain from visiting. If you are not sure, please check with your health care provider. Learn more ways you can stay in touch with your loved one if you are unable to come to the hospital

  • While in a hospital children are safest when accompanied by a trusted adult. We ask that you provide supervision for any visitors under the age of 12 anywhere in the hospital including a patient’s room or unit

  • Many patients have roommates. As a result, items in a room may belong to another individual. Please be respectful of the property of other persons and of the hospital

  • Quietness is a priority. In our ongoing effort to promote a restful, healing environment the following items are prohibited: alcoholic beverages, disruptive or violent behavior, smoking, street drugs and weapons.

 

We understand that hospitals can be noisy. We ask that you partner with us in helping us control noise by:

  • speaking softly

  • placing your mobile phone setting on vibrate and

  • minimizing the number of visitors within your loved one’s room at one time.

 

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
