Roane Medical Center’s primary concern is for the welfare and speedy recovery of our patients. We ask that guests show special consideration and flexibility when scheduling visits. General visiting hours are from 8:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. Some areas, however, do have restricted visiting hours. Children are allowed to visit patients (unless otherwise posted on a unit). However, for the wellness of our patients, we ask that you notify our nurses regarding children with any sign or symptoms of illness, especially colds, before entering a patient room.
We thank you for your cooperation in observing this schedule and any other visiting restrictions posted in the interest of individual patients.
Visitation Policy in the Intensive Care Unit
Patients in critical care are very ill and have an increased need for rest so they can heal and recuperate. Special guidelines for visitation are as follows:
ICU visiting hours:
- Only two people may visit a patient at a time. Others are asked to wait in the ICU waiting room located near the Emergency Room waiting area.
- Flowers aren't allowed in ICU. Please do not order flowers, balloons, etc., for patients to be delivered to the ICU.
- Patients in ICU wear hospital gowns, so family members are asked to take the patients' clothing and valuables home.
- Our shifts change at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Please keep in mind that the time between 6:45 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. are busier times for our staff because they are receiving reports and assessing their patients – this is very important to their care.
- If you need to speak to the doctor or have any needs or expectations, please inform the nurse taking care of your loved one.
- Please contact the patient’s nurse with any problems or concerns you may have.
