Visitation is allowed as follows:
Your immediate family or a visitor designated by you may visit at any time, but must wait with a Surgery Hostess in the Meditation Room or in the 23rd Street Visitors’ lobby during surgery. Important information will be relayed directly to them from the recovery area.
The Obstetrical Unit is a family-centered unit. The father, grandparents and siblings are permitted open visitation.
Patients may have two visitors with them during the visiting periods every two hours, on the even hours from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for ten minutes. Before visiting in the unit, all visitors should pick up the phone outside the ICU door and dial “1”. The nurse will give you permission to enter. We request that no more than two family members visit during any one visiting period. A waiting room is equipped for family comfort for families of those patients in the ICCU.
Patients may have a parent with them at all times, and are encouraged to do so. A chair-sleeper is available for one parent upon request from the nursing staff.
Visitors are allowed after instruction in isolation techniques by a nurse.
