Visiting Hours

Up to four visitors are allowed in a patient room at the same time during visiting hours. Visitors under the age of 14 are only allowed to visit immediate family members. Younger children may wait in the main lobby if they are attended by an adult.

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

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

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

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

Please do not sit on the patient's bed.

A security vehicle is available to transport visitors to and from the visitor parking lot. Phone the information desk at (586) 493-8005 to make arrangements.

Electronic Device Use

As guests at McLaren, we expect that all patients, visitors and staff are treated in a respectful manner, while preserving the integrity and privacy of all patients. For this reason, the use of ALL cameras and recording devices, including but not limited to, cell phone recording functions, is prohibited in patient care settings.

Additionally, the use of mobile and electronic devices should be limited in patient care settings, and is prohibited in certain patient care settings if the use will interfere with medical equipment use. These areas will be marked accordingly to ensure patient safety and compliance.

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