Visiting Hours To Inpatient Units
We strongly support a patient's right to receive visitors, recognizing the contribution that visits from family and friends make to the patient's recovery. All visitors chosen by the patient, or patient representative, are granted full and equal visitation rights consistent with the patient's wishes.
We do not restrict who may visit the patient unless the visitor: poses a risk to the patient/others of serious infection; poses a threat of physical harm: is disruptive to patients or others; or specific to the Behavioral Health Unit, the visitor was a patient on the unit within the prior month.
Hospital visiting hours are between 11 a.m. -8 p.m. Family members may visit at other times but will be encouraged to allow the patient sufficient rest time. Variations may exist by nursing area, generally to support patient involvement in therapeutic programming and appointments (e.g., visiting hours on the Behavioral Health Unit are 5 - 8 p.m.), or to accommodate the needs of patients/families and the treatment team.
Visitors are encouraged to pre-arrange visits to avoid conflicts with scheduled activities.
A maximum of two (2) visitors per patient at any one time is encouraged, particularly in semi-private rooms. If both beds in a semi-private room are occupied, visitors will be asked to not come in before 11:00AM and to leave at 8:00PM unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Visitors may not spend the night in a patient's room if both beds in a semi-private room are or may become occupied.
The Hospital's lobby, unit lounges, chapel and dining room are available for patient and visitor convenience.
Generally, children may visit during regular visiting hours, when accompanied by an adult visitor.
