While you or your loved one is a patient here, care will be provided by a team of skilled health care professionals who may include a neurosurgeon, neurologist, nurse and nurse technician, occupational, physical or respiratory therapist, speech-language pathologist, pharmacist, dietitian, clinical case manager, social worker, chaplain and patient representative.
Center for Neuroscience Visitation Policy
Our policy is open but with some restrictions due to limited space and the tolerance capacity of our patients to environmental stimulation. Open visitation is permitted from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. with the following restrictions:
- Limit two persons at a time.
- Visitors should be willing to comply with a request by any healthcare provider to vacate the patient’s room whenever necessary.
- Visitation by children 12 years old or younger is discouraged.
