We welcome visitors to the hospital 24 hours a day. Please note that visiting hours can be adjusted at any time per the discretion of our healthcare providers.

Visiting may be limited under the following conditions:

  • Under a doctor's specific order
  • Upon a patient's request
  • At the discretion of nursing personnel to provide a patient with treatment and rest.

Restrictions

When hospital restrictions occur for phone, visiting, mail, etc., a collaborative process will occur between caregivers, family members and the patient after fully explaining the rationale for decisions. The restrictions will be evaluated for therapeutic effectiveness.

Exceptions and night visiting are at the discretion of the Administrative Supervisor/designee, based on the needs of the patient.

Special Area Rules

Isolation: One visitor at a time is permitted with special precautions used to protect the visitor from cross infection. Efforts should be made to limit the visitor to next-of-kin.

If requested, the patient's permission must be obtained each time someone is allowed to visit.

All patients (or their support person, where appropriate) shall have the right, subject to his or her consent, to receive the visitors whom he or she designates, including, but not limited to, a spouse, a domestic partner (including a same-sex domestic partner), another family member, or a friend, and the patient (or their support person, where appropriate) shall have the right to withdraw or deny such consent at any time; patient visitation rights shall not be restricted, limited or otherwise denied on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability; all visitors shall enjoy full and equal visitation privileges consistent with patient preferences.
