Rest is an important part of patient’s care and so is the comfort of brief visits by friends and relatives. To ensure that visits do not become an undue strain on patients, visitation hours have been suggested but can be modified based upon the patient's needs and wishes. They vary depending on the severity of the patient’s illness and the patient’s location in the hospital.
- Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Visitors are discouraged from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. to allow time for report and assessment.
- Only two visitors with each patient at any time, please.
