General visitor guidelines

  • Avoid cell phones. It is advised that cell phones not be used near a person on a monitor.
  • All visitors must be in good health. Please do not visit the hospital if you have a cold or sore throat or have recently been exposed to contagious diseases. Remember to wash your hands.
  • You may have to leave the room. When the doctor, nurse, technician or therapists enters to give treatment, you may be asked to leave the room so the patient can have the most privacy possible.
