Visiting Hours


We welcome family and friends to visit while their loved ones are a patient. We realize that close family and friends are an important part of the patients care and recovery.  To provide for the comfort, safety and privacy of all patients, we asked that visitors

  • Please do not visit if you are contagious or not feeling well.
  • Please limit visitor to two per patient. Additional visitors should wait in the waiting rooms adjacent to the patient unit or the main lobby.
  • Please make your visit as short as possible, and speak softly and cheerfully.
  • Please contact the nursing staff prior to entering a patient room with a precaution sign.
  • Children twelve and under should be accompanied by an adult.
  • Visitors may be asked to wait outside of the patient’s room while the medical or nursing staff provides care.
  • Please do not smoke at any time while on the hospital campus

Specific guidelines for visiting may vary on the patient care unit based on the needs of the unit and the individual patient.

We recognize the important role visitors play in the patient’s convalescence. However, we ask visitors to consider all patients’ needs for adequate periods of rest and quiet. Care for the patient is our first priority and this may, at times, require suspension of visiting privileges.

 

Tamera Norton Honored with Daisy Award

Posted on: May 17, 2017

Tamera Norton, a registered nurse in the Transitional Care Unit, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award at Passavant Area Hospital. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. A grateful patient nominated Tamera for the honor: “Over the course of my 28 days at Passavant, I became concerned about my progress. I expressed my concern to Tamera. She took note and promised to try and resolve. She made many phone calls until she was able to make an appointment for me. She kept me informed every step of the way and helped arrange for me to leave the unit for the doctor’s appointment. The result of the appointment not only eased my mind, but caused a complete change in my therapy. Tamera cared for my needs unfailingly and always with professional and pleasant attitudes. The rest was way beyond the call of duty.” After receiving the award, Tamera is considering becoming a Daisy ambassador to help spread the word about her experiences. “As a nurse, our common core is to care that much about our patients. I was just trying to provide the good, quality care that our patients want,” Tamera said.
