 General information and recommendations for visitors

The ICU may often times be an overwhelming place, both for the patient and his/her loved ones.  Therefore, we provide you with some of the following basic information and recommendations to make your visit a more comfortable one.

Two (2) visitors allowed per patient during visiting hours

Every visitor must wash his/her hands upon entry and exit to and from ICU

Mobile phones are only allowed within the unit upon medical authorization

Remember that alarms are the equipment’s audible signals that help Unit staff monitor our patients.  

ICU equipment such as tubes and cables that connect to the patient can seem alarming at first. If you want to know what they are and what they are for, please ask the health personnel to explain

If you are sick, please avoid entering the Unit

Please restrain from bringing natural flowers, latex balloons, or mirrors

The ICU staff will be present during your visit to respond any questions or guide you as you may need.

Generally speaking, you may touch and comfort the patient.  It may actually be quite helpful for him/her to hear and recognize familiar voices.

You can bring things to make the patient feel more comfortable such as books, newspapers, toys, etc. Please ask the staff in advance if there is anything you should not bring or enter the unit.

The person you visit may feel sleepy and seem confused.  He/she may also seem slightly swollen or have injuries like bruises or wounds; this may be hard for you to see, but our team will make sure to inform you, and to have our patients feel the most comfortable possible.
