One support person is considered to be essential and must be constant throughout the stay (i.e. spouse or parent). A second support person may change each day. There are no set visiting hours for these units.

One person per patient for designated visitor hours, 6 pm – 7 pm

End of Life Situations:

Once someone is designated as approaching death (comfort care, inpatient hospice, critical illness with potential quick deterioration, etc.), they will be allowed six family members/support persons at a time in the facility – three in the room at a time with the patient. All family members/support persons must check in with our entrance desk. Visitation will end one hour after the patient’s passing in most circumstances.

Bedside prayer led by Spiritual Care: Six family members can be in the vicinity of the room for a one-time 15 min prayer period for an approaching death patient led by a chaplain and/or priest.
