A care partner is anyone whom you as the patient (or substitute decision maker) determines is significant to their well-being. This is a person whose presence will enhance your stay at the hospital and contribute positively to your overall healing process.
We allow for one care partner at a time, and make provisions for an extra bed, for that person to comfortable while keeping you company.
Family and friends are welcome to visit their loved ones during the day and evening. Visiting privileges are based on the condition of the patient, their care needs and the expressed wishes of each patient.
Our hospital welcomes visitors seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
From 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. are considered quiet time. Children who require supervision must be accompanied by an adult other than the patient.
If visiting hours or the number of visitors need to be temporarily adjusted (e.g., infection prevention), this will be communicated to the patient and care partner in a collaborative manner by a member of the care team.
The following are general guidelines, which may be changed under special circumstances. There may be other visitor guidelines that are unique due to particular health condition of the patient. The care team will explain these to visitors.
To inquire where a patient is located please ask for information at the nurses’ station in the hospital area or at the front desk in the main entrance area. When asking for information please let our staff know your name and relationship to the patient. Our staff will then ask the patient for approval for your visit.
- Only two visitors are to be with a patient at any one time.
- Visitors under the age of 13 years must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
- Visitors may be asked to leave a patient’s room to facilitate care.
