Visits from relatives and friends can play an important part in your loved
one’s recovery, however, a visit can be tiring for a person who is ill. In the
best interest of your loved one, it is suggested that visitors limit the
length of their stays. A family member can assist by coordinating visits for
family and friends. In most cases, our patients’ time, especially mornings, are
scheduled for receiving care and treatment. If a morning visit is planned, we
suggest that you call ahead to make sure your loved one is in his/her room
and that there are no planned procedures.
We ask that all visitors to CTMC respect the following guidelines:
