Patients and Visitors

Visits from family and friends are an important part of recovery for our patients, which is why we offer unrestricted visits for inpatients. 
 
General Guidelines for Visitors:
• SVH is a tobacco-free facility and visitors may not smoke on hospital property.
• Visitors must dress appropriately and must wear shirts and shoes.
• Visitors in semi-private rooms should be considerate of both patients.
• People with colds, sore throats or any contagious diseases should not visit patients.
• Visitors should maintain a quiet environment and avoid unnecessary noise.
• Visitors may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.


Please check with a nurse if you have questions.
