Children need consistency and assurance. Parents are a primary source of comfort and are always welcome in the pediatric and pediatric intensive care units.
It’s important that our young patients rest and that they aren’t exposed to outside illnesses. We respectfully request that family members or friends who wish to visit follow these guidelines:
- Remember that the units are closed to visitors younger than 18 from October through April due to an increase in RSV, colds, flu and other contagious conditions.
- Avoid visiting between 8:30 p.m. and 8 a.m.
- Supervise children at all times (during the months they are able to visit).
- Do not visit if you are sick or have recently been exposed to a communicable disease, such as chickenpox or shingles.
