  • Do not bring food or drink for the patient unless approved ahead of time.
  • We ask that you choose NOT to visit if you (adult or child) are feeling ill or if you have recently been exposed to a communicable disease.

If you are not physically able to visit a patient, you can easily let them know you are thinking of them and wishing them well by sending an eGreeting.
