For Family and Friends

Visits from family and friends may be “good medicine” for you and your child, so we encourage guests. However, we ask that they follow these guidelines while they’re visiting:

  • No smoking anywhere on hospital grounds.
  • Wear shirts and shoes at all times.
  • Guests with colds, sore throats or any contagious diseases should check with your child's nurse before visiting.
  • Maintain quiet behavior and avoid unnecessary noise.
  • Guests may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments, or when the doctor or nurse needs to see your child.

Thank you for your cooperation! 

 

Visiting a Patient

Family and friends are important for your healing process, and visits are encouraged. We ask that visitors respect the patient’s need for care and rest. The length of your visit should be determined by how the patient is feeling. If you have cold, flu symptoms, are not feeling well, or have been recently exposed to a communicable disease, it is better to call the patient than visit. If you feel that it is necessary to visit the patient, please request a mask from the nurse or Patient Registration to wear at all times while you are in the hospital. Pagers are available in some departments for family members who want to leave an area but need to be in contact with colleague.

To enter the hospital after 8 p.m. visitors should use the Emergency Department entrance, on the east side of the building on Webster Aveune.

Health care information belongs to the patient and needs to be managed by the patient. Any personal information about a patient's diagnosis and treatment must come from the patient's physician, and that information will only be given to someone other than the patient with proper authorization.
