Visiting a Patient
At American Oncology Institute (AOI), we understand that visitors are important to the healing process. However, for the well being of all our patients, we expect visitors to follow certain guidelines as listed below:
Information Desk: For the convenience of our patients and visitors, there is an information desk located in the hospital lobby. It serves as a resource for information regarding lodging, accommodations, transportation, etc. You may contact them in person or call.
Visiting Hours: Visiting hours are designed to meet the needs of our patients. Please contact the information desk as hours may change based upon unit-specific needs.
Intensive Care Units: Limited number of visitors are allowed at a time. Visitors are not allowed during procedures. Hours may change based on unit-specific needs.
- Limit the number of visitors.
- Waiting rooms/lounge area is for the use of multiple families; please be respectful of others while using these spaces.
- Do not visit with an infectious disease, such as a cold or flu. We encourage you to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands often to keep your family and other patients safe.
- Make sure you wear a mask while entering the hospital premises. Masks with valves are not allowed.
- Children are welcome; however, they must be in good health and supervised by an adult at all times.
- Bringing flowers/bouquets for patients should be avoided and is strictly prohibited in the intensive-care units as pollen poses danger to people with allergies.
- Use of cell phones is prohibited in some areas. Otherwise too, keeping interest of other patients in mind its advisable to keep your phones on silent mode in hospital premises.
- Cooperate with the security and staff of the hospital.
- Maintain hygiene and silence inside the hospital.
