Palmetto General Hospital believes that a patient’s support person and or visitors play an important role in the care and recovery of patients by providing support to the patient, providing health information about the patient, communicating patient’s needs and desires, creating a more familiar environment for the patient and ultimately serving as intermediary between the hospital staff and the patient in support of continuity of care.
We provide open visiting hours, but our staff will use their best clinical judgement and take into account all aspects of the patient’s health and safety of visitation on a patient’s care. Visitation rights may differ by type of unit or department, and individuals who are feeling ill are discouraged from visiting patients in the hospital.
