Visitors are welcomed in a mutual concern for the patient. Such concern recognizes that rest and unhindered performance of care and treatment must be given priority over visiting. IMH personnel shall not restrict, limit or deny visitation privileges based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.
Family members must check with the nursing staff before visiting a patient room.
The Registered Nurse on the nursing unit is responsible to see that visitors do not compromise patient care or services. When control becomes a problem or in cases of unruly or suspicious visitors, security will be called.
Between 11pm and 5am visitors may be admitted through the Emergency Department entrance and are asked to sign in and out on a log sheet. Switchboard will contact the receiving unit to announce the visitor. Name tags will be required with the word "Visitor" and the destination recorded. If the person fails to appear on the unit, security will be notified immediately.
Visitors are not allowed to spend the night at the hospital. Exceptions are for pediatric, critically ill and terminally ill (including Hospice) at the discretion of the nursing staff.
