We have open visiting hours for the convenience of families and friends as well as for the patient. Please speak with the nurse caring for your family member/friend to learn when it is best to visit so you can avoid busy times when the patient is receiving care.
The Patient Care Unit observes QUIET TIME from 7-9am and from 7:30-9:00pm. Please limit visitations and interruptions during these designated times. With your help, our PCU nurses spend uninterrupted time with their patients to provide them with the best care. A quiet environment is a safe environment in which to give medications and for nurses and patients to communicate with each other.
Siblings are always welcome to see their newborn brother/sister. If your family member is a patient in another area of the hospital, please talk to the nurse about the advisability of bringing children.
Please remember rest is also an important part of recuperation and healing and we suggest all visits be brief. Persons with a cold, sore throat, or any communicable illness should not visit patients. We also encourage you to limit the number of visitors in a room.
There may be times when visitors may be limited or restricted because the visitation may interfere with the care of the patient, the care of other patients, or there are infection control issues such as an outbreak of the flu.
Other potential visiting restrictions could include, the hospital is aware there is an existing court order restricting contact or a visitor is engaging in disruptive, threatening or violent behavior of any kind.
Henry Community Health will not restrict, limit, or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. All visitors will enjoy full and equal visitation privileges consistent with patient preferences.
