Visiting hour policies at BSA are designed to maintain patient comfort and assist in the recovery process. In order to allow for the maximum time for patient care, tests, treatment and physician visits, visiting hours may be limited. Patient family members and friends are considered visitors and required to follow the visiting hours policy. Visits should be brief to allow the patient the opportunity to rest or attend to personal needs.
Unless otherwise posted, visitors may be limited to 2 visitors per patient, including children over 2 years of age. For the privacy of our patients, we ask that additional visitors use the waiting areas within each nursing unit.
Except for Critical Care, visiting hours are from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Overnight accommodations are not available in waiting rooms or semi-private rooms. We appreciate your assistance in providing a safe/quiet environment for our patients.
Critical Care Visitation
Our goal in Critical Care is to give you access to your loved one in this time of need as much as we possibly can. We understand that the healing process will include love and support from you – the family.
Visitors are welcome to our Critical Care with our Flexible Critical Care Visitation:
- Two visitors may be at the patient’s bedside.
- From 10 pm until 6 am, one (1) visitor may stay at the patient’s bedside.
- Visitors are not allowed to bring food or drink into the patient’s room.
- Children under the age of 12 may visit on a case by case basis. The Critical Care Supervisor will assist with these requests.
- Visitors may be asked to leave the unit during patient emergencies, procedures and/or if the patient’s condition warrants. Immediate family members will be allowed to stay during resuscitation efforts if they desire.
