The following changes to exceptions have been made to the visitors policy:
Pediatric patients may have two designated visitors on the inpatient units. For the purposes of this policy, pediatric patients are defined as patients under 21 years of age.
Patients with behavioral health, developmental delays or altered mental status for whom a family member or caregiver is integral to their care or safety may have one visitor. Altered mental status resulting from medication-induced sedation in an intensive care unit setting is not included in this exception.
