We recognize the therapeutic benefit of having someone by your side during a medical emergency.
In most cases, one visitor at a time is allowed at the bedside when in the Emergency department. This will allow medical needs to be met and privacy maintained.
Relatives and friends are asked to remain in the emergency lobby area unless their presence is absolutely necessary for care. Staff will keep friends and family informed about care and treatment as much as possible. Minors may need to be accompanied by their parents.
