Patient and Visitor Guidelines

Children Under 12:
Children under 12 years of age are not permitted in the hospital.  Special requests can be made when life-threatening circumstances exist by contacting security.  

NO Cell Phones: 
Cell phones are to be turned OFF when you are in patient care areas.  You may use your cell phone in the lobby areas only. Cell phone use in patient areas may cause equipment failure.   

Visiting Hours:
8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Overnight Visitors: 
The patient may have one adult in attendance at all times throughout their hospital stay.  The guest may request a recliner from the nurse to make the stay more comfortable.

Family Spokesperson:
When a patient is from a large family, it is recommended that the family appoint a family spokesperson to be the contact person for the nursing staff.  The spokesperson can then share the information with the family and be their contact for questions.

Mail Service:
Mail service is available during a patient’s stay. The patient’s name should be on the outside of the envelope, as well as a return address.
