Intensive Care Unit Visitation

Intensive and critical care units observe limited visiting periods due to the level of care needed. These hours are posted in the units, waiting rooms and below. During visitation, two members of the immediate family are allowed to visit at one time.

Occasionally, an emergency or procedure in the unit may delay the start of visitation. Should this occur, every effort will be made to allow visitation as soon as possible. Any visit into the units must first be cleared with the nurse to serve the best interests of all patients. No children under the age of 12 are allowed in the units.

  • Please limit personal items to a minimum to decrease the risk of infection.
  • Live plants or flowers are not permitted.
  • Please remember to wash your hands both before and after your visit and to observe any other precautions such as wearing a gown, gloves, or mask if required.
