Visitor Guidelines

  • Children under the age of 14 (in all other units) must be supervised by an adult at all times.
  • Because your diet is often considered part of your treatment plan, visitors may not bring food to you unless they’ve cleared it with your physician or nurse.
  • People with colds, sore throats or any contagious diseases should not visit patients.
  • Visits should be kept short.
  • To maintain a quiet environment, visitors should avoid creating unnecessary noise.
  • Visitors are asked to observe quiet times daily from 2p.m. to 4p.m. and after 9p.m.  These especially quiet times give our patients even more opportunity to rest and recover.
  • Visitors may be asked to leave the room when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.
  • Plants and flowers are not permitted in the critical care units.
  • All doors into the building are secured at 8:00 pm. A security officer will issue a visitor pass which must be worn while in the hospital.
