General Guidelines for Your Visit
Your family and friends are welcome to visit you while you are here. We ask that no more than two people visit at a time and that all visitors check in at the nurses' station before entering your room. Visitation privileges will not be restricted, limited, or otherwise denied on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or disability. You/your support person will be informed of your visitation rights, including any clinical restriction or limitation on such rights, by receipt of the Patient Rights Notice upon admission. You/your support person will be informed of the right, subject to your consent, to receive the visitors whom you designate, including, but not limited to, a spouse, a domestic partner (including a same-sex domestic partner), another family member, or a friend, and your right to withdraw or deny such consent at any time. Visitors should not bring in any food or beverage for you without your physician's approval.
Please ask your visitors to observe the following visiting hours so you may rest and recuperate:
