Visiting Hours and Guidelines

University Hospitals Conneaut Medical Center encourages family members and friends of patients to visit frequently. While we have no formal visiting hours, and try to be as flexible as possible to meet you and your support persons’ needs, under certain circumstances it may be necessary to limit visitation. For instance, visitation may be restricted to abide by a patient’s preferences, to control the spread of infection, to heed a physician or nurse’s best clinical judgment or if visitation interferes with the care of the patient or other patients, to maintain privacy or to ensure a quiet, restful atmosphere for a patient or a patient’s roommate. You are entitled to an explanation whenever a restriction is placed on visitation.

UH Conneaut Visitation Guidelines

  • Please check with the nurse for any specific visitation guidelines for your nursing unit.
  • Our recommendation is to limit the number of support persons (visitors) at any one time. Our suggestion is two per patient.
  • Please check with nursing personnel before visiting with children and infants.
  • Please don’t visit if you are sick or might have a cold or other illness.
  • Ensure that children who visit are supervised by an adult other than the patient.
  • Keep voices low.
  • Please do not bring latex balloons to the hospital.

Medical Surgical Units

Open visitation is welcomed as patient condition and unit activity allows. It is preferred that visitors arrive between 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult family member or friend who is responsible for the children’s safety and must attend to the children at all times.

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

The ICU is located on the third floor at UH Conneaut Medical Center. Two visitors at a time are welcomed as patient condition and unit activity allows. It is preferred that visitors arrive between noon - 8 p.m. All children under the age of 13 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.

While we welcome our patient’s family and friends to visit at the bedside, staff may ask visitors to step out of the unit in the event of a bedside procedure or an emergency situation. For exceptional patient care, the ICU is now located on the third floor adjacent to the medical/surgical wing.
