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.

 

Monica Schriber Honored With Daisy Award

Posted on: August 18, 2017

Monica Schriber, RN, Emergency Department, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award. 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. “At this point in my nursing career, receiving the Daisy Award is very special to me,” said Monica. "It means a lot, but I couldn’t do it without my co-workers. They all helped. I work with a great team.” Monica was nominated for the Daisy Award by a grateful co-worker: “Monica provided excellent care of a patient presenting in the Emergency Department with injuries following an assault. The patient was paranoid, apprehensive, scared and had difficulties trusting staff. Monica provided care and comfort to the patient for over nine hours. Upon discharge, the patient had no ride home. Monica made numerous calls to family, friends and transportation agencies before finally talking with Social Services, who helped provide a taxi ride home. I want to commend Monica for her passion, support and willingness to do everything she could to provide this patient with the care and safety needed. This is an example of a true leader in our department and I’m very proud to have Monica as an advocate for our patients, families and staff.”
