Visits from friends and relatives can make a patient’s hospital stay more enjoyable. Below is information about hospital visitation policies as well as hospital amenities and services.
Inpatient Units & Visitation
It is our responsibility to ensure that every patient receives care in a quiet and restful environment. We ask that visitors respect patients’ needs for rest and privacy. Visiting hours on most units are flexible. We recommend the following general guidelines:
Coronary and Intensive Care
Visiting hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Special circumstance visitation: Depending upon the special needs of the patient, and as the patient’s condition allows, visitation can be made available for immediate family members 24 hours a day (preferably two persons for five minutes each hour). Generally, children under 12 years of age are not permitted within the ICU.
Visiting hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Women & Children’s Health
Visiting hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visiting hours are for family members (fathers, grandparents, siblings, and other family members). Please contact the nursing staff for specific information.
Visiting hours: Weekdays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and weekends from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. However, depending upon the special needs of patients or their families, exceptions can be made.
Smoking Policy: Smoke-Free Campus
Frisbie Memorial Hospital maintains a smoke-free campus consistent with federal and state laws. Frisbie recognizes the health and safety risks of smoking and its responsibility to provide leadership and guidance in health promotion and provision of a safe and healthy environment for employees, patients, and visitors.
Smoking, including the use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and chewing tobacco by all employees, patients, and visitors is prohibited in all areas of Frisbie and its medical practices including grounds, parking lots, and walkways.
