Family and friends give our patients the love and support they need to get better, and we encourage you to play an active role.
You can choose two family members and/or friends to be listed in your medical record as partners in care.
While your loved one is in ICU, we’re taking extra special care of them—with the highest number of nurses focused on our patients’ every need.
We provide free interpreting services to patients and their partners in care.
As a learning organization, we continue to challenge ourselves with new certifications, accreditations, and partnerships each year. Combined, they not only strengthen the quality of care we deliver to patients, but the quality of care pathways that stretch across our community.
There are no set visiting hours. Partners in Care and close family may be with patients 24/7. Other guests are welcome according to the patient’s preference (including Critical Care/ICU) between 8:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. to respect quiet time and sleeping hours. Hours may vary on some units and floors. Please check with the nurses’ station if you have questions.
We understand that who you regard as your family may not be traditional family members. Family is defined as anyone the patient says is family. These individuals are support persons who may or may not be legally related to the patient. Guests are acquaintances, or perhaps a friend of the patient, who want to visit in the hospital for a short time.
Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult and should check in at the nursing station. Because children can unknowingly pass along illnesses, a nurse may give the child a quick medical screening. Children may not understand a loved one’s condition. If you would like help preparing your child for a visit, the hospital Chaplain can help.
We want to maintain the healthiest possible environment for patients, employees and visitors. As part of a city-wide initiative involving nearly every hospital in our area, individuals may not use any type of tobacco product on our campuses—including hospitals, parking lots/decks, sidewalks, and in cars on hospital property.
