Visiting Guidelines for ICU

You can help us help your loved one. Please follow the guidelines:

  • Limit ICU visitors to two at the patient’s bedside during regular visiting hours (until quiet hours). More than two visitors are permitted in the PCU, but in all cases, nurses may limit visits to help your loved one rest and heal
  • Exchange visitors and information in the waiting areas, not at the bedside or in doorways
  • Use the waiting area when not visiting in the patient’s room to help limit traffic in hallways, doorways and the unit itself. This helps us comply with all fire and safety regulations and patient confidentiality rules
  • Use hand sanitizers on the wall near the door of each room when entering and leaving; infection control guidelines are set to help patient recovery – GEL IN and GEL OUT
  • Do not bring live flowers, plants or animals into ICU (flowers are permitted in the PCU) but balloons, cards and photographs are welcome
  • Do not eat or drink in the ICU (food and drink are allowed in the PCU)
  • Limit cell phone use and keep conversations in a quiet tone; set phone ringers on low volume or vibrate
  • Consider the risk to ICU patients and the need for your visit if you have a fever or symptoms of an infectious illness (cold, flu). If you might be ill, reschedule your visit
  • Provide direct supervision for children; for safety reasons, please keep toddlers and infants at home
  • Rest and take care of yourself so you’re in the best possible health to help your loved one’s recovery
