Welcome to Joint Township District Memorial Hospital. We know that a limited number of visitors is an important part of a patient’s recovery.
Please abide by the following hours and rules. Unless the patient’s physician has asked you to come in for a consultation or to be here while the patient is in surgery or special procedure, the following visiting hours apply:
General Visitation: 1:00 pm to 8:30 pm
- Two visitors other than the spouse or parent.
- Children age 10 and over may accompany an adult for regular visitation unless this threatens the patient’s health or child’s health.
- Children under age 10 may visit with special permission of the charge nurse.
Spouses/significant others have unlimited visitation. Siblings and grandparents may visit anytime from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. Children under 10 years of age will not be permitted to visit. All visitors must be free of illness.
Same as general hospital visitation. Sibling visitation must be arranged with permission of charge nurse. Siblings may not stay overnight. One parent or parent substitute should remain with the child.
Visiting hours in the ICU are designed to provide the patient with essential rest and care needed for his or her recovery. Visiting hours are from 10:00 am until 8:30 pm. These times may be adjusted depending on your loved one’s needs. We ask no visitors be permitted during "report" time (6:30 am to 7:30 am and 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm) and a "quiet time" be observed from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. We prefer that no more than two family members be in the room at a time. In order to ensure the privacy of all ICU/CCU patients, we ask that all visitors use the phone located by the doorway in the ICU/CCU waiting room to ask permission to visit. You will be informed if the time is appropriate for you to enter. No food, live plants, or cut flowers are permitted in the ICU/CCU rooms. Silk arrangements and Mylar balloons are acceptable as space and condition permits.
One member of the immediate family may be designated to call in once each shift 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm, 11:00 pm to 7:00 am, to get a general report of the patient’s condition. Please let the Lead nurse know who will be calling in.
