A visit can have a positive effect on a patientís wellbeing. Family and friends are welcome to provide support and company while a patient is in hospital. To ask where a patient is located or a patientís phone extension, please call switchboard at ext. 0 or the information desk in the main lobby, ext. 2110.
Daily regular visiting hours are from 1400 to 2000 hrs. (2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.). CMH recognizes that at times, there may be a need to visit beyond these hours. These requests will be considered on a case by case basis in consultation with the patientís care team.
Only two visitors are to be with a patient at any one time.
Visitors under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult caregiver at all times.
Visitors may be asked to leave a patient's room to facilitate care.
Wash your hands using the wall mounted hand sanitizers, especially before entering and leaving a patientís room. Help control the spread of infection in hospital.
There may be other visitor guidelines unique to different clinical areas (i.e., Oncology, Womenís and Childrenís Health, Critical Care). The care team will explain these to visitors.
The only children allowed to visit obstetrics are brothers and sisters of the baby.
