Semi-Private Room Considerations

Being in a semi-private room requires additional sensitivity to respect the privacy of the other patient. The following rules and expectations help to ensure the safety and privacy of all patients:

  • We may ask family members/visitors to leave the room when a roommate is about to receive care, or to allow a sensitive discussion to take place.
  • We may ask family members/visitors to use a different area to sleep, for example the lounge.
  • We expect family members/visitors to be sensitive to the volume of their conversations and maintain a low level of noise.
  • Family members/visitors should use the public restrooms rather than the bathroom located in the patient room.

General Information

No smoking is permitted in the hospital or on the hospital campus and parking structure.

Take home any valuables that your loved one may have brought to the hospital.

No flowers should be sent and no food should be brought to patients in ICU.

Please speak softly while visiting and avoid unnecessary noise to maintain a restful environment for all patients.

To protect the patient's privacy, visitors are asked to leave the room when medical or nursing procedures are performed.

What Loved Ones Can Do to Help

Being there is one of the best things you can do for your ill family member. You can touch them, hold their hand and talk to them. Though they may not be able to show you that they know you are there, they can usually hear and feel you. Finally, and just as important, remember to take care of yourself so that you can continue to be a support to your loved one.

Hospital Entry After Midnight

For your security, the main entrance to the hospital is locked between the hours of midnight and 5:00 a.m. Access to the hospital between these hours is through the Emergency Entrance.
