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.

 

Cassie Houf-Seagraves is Employee of the Month

Posted on: December 7, 2017

Passavant Area Hospital’s Employee of the Month is Cassie Houf-Seagraves, a licensed clinical social worker. She works in the Social Services department and has been a Passavant employee four years. A grateful co-worker nominated Cassie for the honor. “We recently had a patient who was defiant and confused and had mental and physical complications. The patient was no longer able to care for herself and had to be sent to a nursing home. Cassie found a nursing home quickly and could have been satisfied with the task being completed. Instead, Cassie continued to work with Case Management to look for nursing homes to make sure all of the patient’s physical, mental health and communication needs were met. Cassie helped make arrangements for the patient’s belongings to get to the nursing home, and even made sure the patient’s cat would receive care. When it was time to go to the nursing home, the patient was upset and confused, refusing to go. Cassie went to the patient for a heart-to-heart conversation. Cassie was able to relieve the patient of her fears and make her feel important and supported.” As a social worker, Cassie’s responsibilities include identifying, addressing and resolving socially complex situations with patients, coordinating care with patient families, providing resources, advocating for patients and community members and providing crisis intervention and supportive counseling. “Passavant works endlessly to continue to improve and offer top notch services in a rural community,” said Cassie. “Employees, patients and community members are beyond fortunate that Passavant is part of a health system that opens leading doors to this area and never ceases to work to improve the health of the people and communities it serves.” Cassie and her husband, Michael, reside in Jacksonville with their son, Landon. The Employee of the Month at Passavant receives eight hours off with pay, an Employee of the Month plaque, a close parking space for one month, gift cards for the Cafeteria and Gift Shop, a movie gift card, pen and pencil set, picnic blanket, flashlight/tool kit, Mason jar cup, umbrella, small cooler, lunch sack, drawstring tote, water bottle, notepad, flashlight key ring, coffee mug, and cup.
