Set visiting hours allow for rest and adequate treatment of patients. We encourage visitors to be sensitive to the needs of the patient they are visiting and other patients and staff in the ward or unit.
For infection control reasons it is very important that all visitors wash their hands before entering the ward or unit and then again when leaving the hospital. Visitors who have colds or other infections should not visit until they are well.
