Visiting a Patient
Some of the best medicine for patients is to have visitors. For the convenience of our customers, West Shore Medical Center is pleased to offer extended visiting hours. However, we ask that certain guidelines be followed so a patient's medical care is not interrupted.
General visiting hours are from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily. After 9 p.m., visitors can receive an after-hours pass by signing in at the information desk in the lobby. However, the staff will base visiting hours on each patient's needs and condition.
Critical Care Unit
Because of the nature of care provided in this unit, the staff works with the physician to determine visitation guidelines. Generally, visitors are limited to two people from the immediate family. All visitors need to check in with the staff before entering the critical care unit.
Quiet time is observed in our inpatient units from 2 to 4 p.m. each day. While visitors are not restricted, we ask that you help maintain the quiet atmosphere.
Mail, packages, and flowers are delivered to patient rooms on a daily basis. Including the patient's full name and room number on such items will help us accomplish prompt delivery. Items may be mailed to:
