Visitor Guidelines

Visitor Guidelines

There is an open visiting policy for all family members. Family is defined as anyone the patient regards as family. However, adequate rest is important for both the patient and the family. For this reason, it is recommended that visitors be limited to one or two at a time. Children may visit with adult supervision.
