Visiting guidelines

  • The ideal visiting time for ICU patients is 15 to 30 minutes.Visiting time may be shortened or extended as the patient's condition changes.
  • Please limit visitors to two or three at a time.
  • Visitors may be asked to leave the patient's room, depending on the patient's need or at the request of the staff or physician.
  • If the curtain is pulled or the door closed, please check with the nurse before entering.
  • Please be courteous and respectful of other patients' privacy as you go to and from your family member's room.

Patients cannot have visitors or phone calls during the following times

  • 7 to 8 a.m.
  • 10 to 10:30 a.m.
  • 3 to 4 p.m.
  • 7 to 8 p.m.

During this time we conduct RN shift-to-shift report and, in order to protect patient confidentiality, we ask all ICU visitors and family to step out of the ICU during these times.
