Who can visit and when?
Visitation can only occur after the Therapist has spoken with you and has recommended for visits to begin.
- Tuesday, Thursday: 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
- Wednesday: 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
- Saturday and Sunday: 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign in at the front desk.
We know it is difficult to be separated from your loved one while he/she is in the Hospital and we want to provide you with opportunities to have visitation. To make sure that visitation is a pleasant, positive, and safe experience for all involved, the following guidelines have been developed and implemented.
- Visitation is a time to visit and support the patient, not to cause distress to either the family or the child. If the visit becomes tense or negative, staff will encourage the family to leave and discuss this with the therapist at the next opportunity available. Staff will also intervene and cancel visitation if the visit becomes disruptive to your child and/or the other patients.
- Visitors are limited to a maximum of 4 persons at one time. These persons are to be determined by the therapist.
- Any changes in the visitation list must be negotiated through the therapist.
- Visitors not on the approved list will not be allowed to visit.
- Parents and/or family members must control younger children who are visiting.
- Please leave all of your belongings including purses and diaper bags in your car. You must leave your keys with the receptionist.
- Belongings for the patients are to be checked in at the front desk after visitation so to not interfere with your time to visit with your loved one.
- Use of Hand-Held Detectors: For the safety of our patients, please note that all visitors are subject to scanning by hand-held detectors. Refusal to consent to such scanning might result in restriction from the patient care units.
- For safety reasons, if you must leave visitation, you will not be allowed to return to visitation.
- Please clarify all questions and concerns with your therapist and/or discharge planner regarding visitation prior to the time of visitation so as not to cause your visitation time to be either removed or diminished on the day of visitation.
- Visitation is for family members only. Best friends, girlfriends/boyfriends, or fiancés are not considered part of the family.
- The primary worship leader (rabbi, priest, pastor, youth minister, or other religious leader at your congregation) will also be allowed visitation provided the parent or guardian gives consent. We recognize the healing power of spirituality in improving mental well being and want to encourage ways to support your child’s needs. Arrangements can be made through the Therapist for visitation.
