Planning Your Visit
Visits by a family member, significant other, friend, or other support person can play a vital role in patients’ well-being and serve as a great source of comfort and assistance. As a patient, you have the right to decide who may or may not visit without regard to race, color, national origin, language, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or socioeconomic status.
Generally, we encourage visits between 11 am and 8 pm daily, though some hospital units may have slightly different hours. We will work to accommodate your visitation needs while ensuring that your care and safety and that of your fellow patients is not compromised.
Clinical staff can determine that visitation is not optimal given the patient’s medical condition or that visitation should be restricted in certain circumstances. Clinical or security staff may restrict or limit visitors when:
- Visitors exhibit signs or symptoms of infection (e.g., coughing, runny nose, fever, chills)
- Visitors interfere with the care of other patients
- You or your roommate(s) need(s) rest or privacy
- We are aware of a court order restricting contact between you and the visitor
- Visitors engage in disruptive, threatening, or violent behavior
- You are undergoing care interventions
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Open visiting hours around the clock limited to those individuals who play a significant role in the patient's life or who have been designated by a patient as their representative.
We ask that visitors to the neonatal intensive care unit limit their visits to 15 to 30 minutes at a time.
We offer three types of rooms: semi-private, private, and deluxe. Since bed assignments are based upon medical specialty and availability when you arrive, we cannot always guarantee to meet your request for a private room. However, we will do everything we can to accommodate your request. If you wish to request a deluxe or private room, please speak with your physician.
Private and semi-private rooms offer standard features while providing for all your medical needs. Deluxe rooms offer maximum privacy and comfort with designer furnishings and amenities like complementary TV service. You can also borrow from a selection of popular movies by calling the Patient Representative Department at extension 3818.
