In order to provide a comfortable healing environment for your loved one, we kindly request your assistance with the following:
Allowing a patient to rest is one of the most important priorities after a health emergency. Please allow the patient time to rest. The body requires this ‘down time’ to recover appropriately. It is also suggested that family members receive enough rest in order to be a strong support for their recovering loved one.
It is recommended that you assist us by limiting visitors and calls to the patient while he or she is in the ICU, as it will help to foster a quicker recovery. Additionally, due to infection risks, children under the age of 14 are not permitted in the ICU. Please understand that this policy is to protect young visitors and the patient.
Please be respectful of the closed curtains in a patient’s room. We ask that you wait until the curtain is opened before entering to provide as much privacy as possible.
Flowers and latex balloons are not permitted in the ICU.
Please make and take cell phone calls in the ICU Family Waiting Area.
