Critical Care Visitor Guidelines
Our critical care team works around-the-clock to provide your loved one with excellent care. In order to help our patients and staff, we ask that visits be kept to 15-20 minutes, with only two visitors at a time. Sleeping in the patient areas is not permitted.
Minimizing health risks from germ exposure is especially important for our patients in critical care units.
- Always use hand sanitizer or hand wipes when entering or leaving patient areas.
- No balloons or flowers are permitted in the critical care units.
- Food and drinks are not permitted at any time.
We ask that minors under 12 remain in the waiting room with an adult to reduce the risk of infection for them and all patients in the unit. Please also remember that seeing a loved one in critical care can be frightening to a child. Minors over the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
