Children need consistency and assurance. Because parents and other family members are a primary source of comfort, they are always welcome. There may be a few instances when you'll be asked to leave your child's room, but that will only be occasionally. Although our team is very experienced in working with children and making them comfortable and happy, there is no substitute for family.
Pediatrics and the pediatric intensive care unit have open visitation 24 hours a day. However, nonparental visitations between the hours of 8:30 p.m. and 8 a.m. are discouraged to allow children to rest. Siblings may visit, provided they are supervised at all times. Persons who are currently sick or have recently been exposed to communicable diseases, such as chickenpox or shingles, should not visit.
