Unit 3700 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Visiting Guidelines
Parents are not considered visitors. As active members of the caregiving team, parents are welcomed at their baby’s bedside any time day or night. Entry onto the unit is limited between 6:30-7:30 AM and PM, due to shift change.
Other family members and friends may visit with a parent, but due to space limitations, only two individuals may be at a baby’s bedside at a time (one of which must be a banded parent). Single parents may choose one consistent, banded support person who may be at the bedside at any time.
Children over 14 may visit with a baby’s parent, and younger children may make arrangements with Child Life Specialists to visit the NICU by appointment. There will be limited visitation in the NICU during flu season.
Parents and visitors may be asked to leave a NICU room if a procedure or surgery is being performed in the room that necessitates patient privacy or safety.
Parents and visitors will present identification upon request (band numbers and letters, driver's license).
Unit 4800 Pediatric Oncology / Hematology Visiting Guidelines
Parents and grandparents may visit any time.
All other visitors may visit a child during the hours of 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Visitors must be over 14 years of age.
All visitation will be at the discretion of clinical staff and may be modified depending on the status of the individual patient and the patients nearby.
Due to the fact that all patients on Unit 4800 have a decreased ability to fight germs, we ask that all visitors wash their hands prior to entering the unit or a child's room. For the safety of your child and our other patients, we request that all visitors with colds, rashes, fevers, mouth blisters or other contagious diseases or questionable exposures not visit.
