At CMC-NorthEast, we realize that your family and friends are important to you and your health, and have established an open visitation policy that will allow your loved ones to visit at any time. We also feel a quiet and restful atmosphere is an important factor in helping patients to recovery quickly. Please urge your visitors to observe these rules, which are designed for the safety and well-being of all our patients.
- You may have a family member or friend stay with you overnight. A sleep chair is available upon request.
- Children under 12 years of age should remain with an adult in the waiting area, but may visit in the room if they are healthy and accompanied by a parent or guardian.
- Persons who have recently been exposed to contagious diseases, including the mumps, measles or chickenpox, or persons with a fever, cold or rash should not visit hospitalized persons. Children should not visit in the Medical Center if their immunizations are not current or if their resistance to infection is low. Visitors, as well as personnel, should remember that hand washing is the most important way to prevent the spread of infection.
