Information Desk

Visitors must stop at the Information Desk in the lobby at the Jamestown Street entrance to receive a visitors pass and the room number of the patient they have come to visit. Information Desk staff must call the Geropsychiatric Unit to provide visitor access to that unit.

Visiting Policy

We encourage loved ones to visit patients and we make every effort to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our patients and visitors. While receiving care, patients have the right to decide who may or may not visit, and those visitors are allowed without regard to race, color, national origin, language, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or socioeconomic status.

Our staff and caregivers understand the important role that visitors and support persons play and every effort is made to ensure that our patients' support person is embraced as a valued member of the care team.

  • To safeguard the comfort of all our patients, visitors are asked to talk quietly and leave promptly when visiting hours have ended.
  • The visiting times and/or the number of visitors may be limited in certain circumstances – and vary unit by unit - to protect the health, safety, and privacy of our patients.
  • If visitors are not feeling well or have an illness that can be transferred to our patients, please refrain from visiting.
  • Visitors must follow infection control precautions, keep noise to a minimum, refrain from taking photographs or videos, and comply with restrictions on smoking, alcohol and illegal substances.
  • Before entering and after leaving your loved one's room, make sure to wash your hands.
  • All children must be in the company of a responsible adult and may not be left unattended.

Each patient may have two visitors at one time unless special permission for more than two has been requested from and approved by the nurse supervisor in advance. Children are permitted to visit but must remain accompanied by an adult at all times. As a reminder, it is hospital policy that unattended children are not permitted in any patient care area or in the Hospital Lobby

A non-denominational chapel is located on the 3rd floor of the hospital. All clergy are welcome to visit members of their congregations who are hospitalized. If your place of worship does not have a representative assigned to visit patients on a regular basis, we suggest that you or your loved one notify your clergy personally to arrange visitation.
