Close family members are an important part of the patient care team. Depending on the patient’s condition, we encourage only one family member or friend to stay with the patient overnight.
Other family members and friends are welcome in the patient’s room between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.
Usually, only two guests are allowed in the room at a time so the patient can rest better. We understand there may be times where more is appropriate. A lot depends on how the patient feels. If the patient has many visitors, some may want to wait in a public area and take turns visiting the patient. An adult other than the patient must supervise children under age 18.
