Visiting at Mile Bluff
Visiting hours for those in Acute Care or in the nursery, are 11 am to
8 pm daily.
At Mile Bluff, the comfort, safety and care of patients is the top priority.
You are encouraged to visit your loved ones in the hospital, but are also
advised to consider their needs as well. Visitors play an important role
in maintaining the health and wellness of patients.
Before you arrive for a visit, you are asked to contact the patient you
wish to see. He or she may be scheduled for tests and appointments throughout
the day, or need time to rest after a procedure, so it's important
for you to know when your loved one will be available for visitors.
Please do not visit if you have the flu or other contagious diseases, such
as, chicken pox or measles. Exposure to these and other viruses can pose
a great risk not only to the patient you are visiting, but to other patients
in the facility.
In addition, it's required that all children who are brought to the
facility are supervised at all times, and that all visitors do their best
to control their volumes to ensure it's quiet enough for the individuals
in patient rooms to heal in peace.
The protection of confidential patient information, and the rights and
privacy of staff members, is extremely important at Mile Bluff. Because
of this, all patients and visitors are asked not to use recording devices
in public areas of the hospital, nursing & rehabilitation centers,
clinics and other facilities. Devices include equipment such as: cameras,
cell phone cameras, video recorders, audio recorders and any other type
of equipment used to capture or record images and/or sound Your respect
for Mile Bluff's patients, residents and staff members is appreciated.
Parking is available for visitors and patient directly in front of the
medical center. There is a drop-off and pick-up area in front of the main
entrance of the hospital, and at all outreach facilities, for those who
need it. However, it is not an area to park your vehicle during an appointment or visit.
Courtesy parking passes are also available at the hospital. These are for
individuals who have trouble getting around, but do not have an actual
handicap permit. The passes are available for temporary use. Mile Bluff's
staff members will distribute passes as needed; however, patients are
also able to request courtesy tags when making appointments or when visiting
the facility. Vehicles with courtesy parking passes may park in the lot
located on the far side of the hospital, around the corner from the main
entrance. There is a courtesy entrance on the side of the building..
