**Even if a visitor has been cleared for entry, this does not guarantee they will be allowed to stay. All visitors should use the Emergency Department entrance to sign-in. This policy will be enforced consistently regardless of any pre-communicated expectations (for example, a healthcare provider who communicates with a family incorrectly). Overnight visitation will be limited and must be approved.
