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.
