"The MRI was an experience I will never forget, and it was due to the two people who administered it. These two young women are not only excellent with patients, but give services at the highest level."

Visitor Restrictions

Johnson Memorial Hospital (JMH) recognizes the importance of family and friends to a patient's recovery and encourages visits from them with its family-oriented visitation policy. Yet, some restrictions are necessary to ensure proper patient care. Also, when visiting, common sense should be your guide. For example:

Individuals with colds, infection or other communicable diseases should not visit patients at JMH.
To avoid tiring the patient, limit visitors to two at a time.
Don't sit on the patient's bed, move the patient or offer food or beverage without consulting the nurse.
Visitors are not allowed to smoke.
Children, in most cases, are allowed to visit, provided they are accompanied by an adult at all times. The patient's nurse should be consulted before visits from children. In addition, because small children often become restless, their visits should be brief. Parents also should consider how the visit will affect both patient and child, as well as the patient's roommate.
