Care Partners (Visitors)
As part of the Patient- and Family-Centered Model of Care, we want patients and families to be part of the team. We’re in this together and welcome care partners and families.
All care partners (visitors) have the right to enjoy full and equal visitation privileges for emotional support during the course of the patient’s stay. These privileges shall be consistent with patient preferences:
- To designate a care partner/support person (including, but not limited to, a spouse, domestic partner [including same-sex partner], family member or friend) to speak on your behalf about visitation if you are unable to do so. To withdraw or deny consent at any time.
The Hospital reserves the right to limit or restrict visitation if there is a safety, medical or therapeutic concern. The Hospital does not restrict, limit or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, physical or mental disability, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.
