We realize that the love and affection provided by friends and family can often be the very best medicine for a child in the hospital. Therefore, we've structured our visiting hours to provide the maximum opportunity for visits.
We also realize, however, that rest is a vital part of a child’s recovery, and we ask you to use common sense in allowing children some quiet times. If your child is in a semiprivate room, please take into consideration that other patients also need rest, and limit your visitors to two in the room at a time.
For safety, children under age three are not permitted to visit patients . All visiting children and siblings three years old and younger must check in at the nurse’s station for a health screen prior to entering the patient’s room. Note that it is imperative that you notify a nurse immediately if a visiting child has been exposed to measles, mumps or chicken pox in the last three weeks.
