Are you an emotional eater? Does stress, boredom, or celebration trigger a binge? Here are some strategies to derail emotional eating.
General visiting hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Two visitors per patient are permitted in the patient room at one time. Exceptions can be made at the discretion of the medical or nursing staff. Visitors must check with a nurse before entering a room marked with a "Special Precautions" sign. Patients may receive visits from children of any age when arranged with the nursing supervisor.
Adults and children over the age of 12 are invited to visit 24-hours a day, as permitted by patient condition, with the exception of 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. when the units are closed to visitors. Visitors should be limited to two or three immediate family members or significant others. Short, frequent visits are generally best (10-15 minutes every hour). This allows for resting and patient care to occur between visits. Because your loved one may be criticically ill, there will be other times when your ability to visit will be delayed or restricted. We will make every effort to communicate to you the length of delay, but are unable to always predict in advance when visitation is best. Children under the age of 12 are not permitted in the ICUs.
The birth of a baby is a highly personal, intimate experience. Each famly's experience will be shaped by their unique needs. We believe in safe, compassionate care during your birth experience. While we make every effort to include family members who you would like to have present to support you during this special time, the safety and comfort of you and your baby remain our highest priority.
Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and we encourage family and friends to visit the new family once all members are settled in their room on the FamilyCare Unit. For your baby's safety, we ask that parents screen visitors for colds or illness prior to their visit. In addition, we request that young family members remain in mom's room and be supervised by an adult other than the new mom at all times.
If your newborn is admitted to the NICU, you will receive information specific to that area. We strongly believe that parents' presence in the unit is essential to the infant's well-being.
Your family and friends may call the hospital at 1-860-714-4789 for information about your room and/or telephone number. To protect patient confidentiality, no information about your condition will be made available to callers.
