ICU Guidelines


  • 4th Floor NSICU (Neurosurgery): 615-284-4383

We would like our patient's family to have the most current information.  You can help by selecting one family spokesperson to relay information between the critical care staff and the entire family.  The patient and the staff members benefit because there is more time for patient care.
Visitors chosen by the patient are able to enjoy visitation privileges that are no more restrictive than those of the immediate family and do not discriminate based upon race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender, or disability.

The primary support person may stay in the room at all times. STMH reserves the right to determine any situation where it is necessary to limit visitation.


  • Visitation is limited to two visitors at a time.
  • Visitors with children under the age of 12 years must see an RN before entering the patient's room.
  •  Visitation may be limited during the hours of 6:00am to 8:00am and 6:00pm to 8:00pm. This is the time nurses give handoff report and the oncoming nurses need time to assess the patients. If you remain in the unit during this time we ask that you remain in the patient’s room while visiting.
  • Please keep visits brief and encourage your loved ones to rest.
  • Staff may ask you to step out and return to the waiting room if they need to provide care to the patient.
  • Please remain in the patient’s room to help maintain privacy for the other patients.
  •  Before entering and exiting the patient’s room, we ask that you use the antibacterial foam located in the patient’s room.
  • Please do not bring food or drinks into the patient’s room.
  • Please do not sit on the floor or on un-occupied  beds.
  • Fresh cut flowers are not permitted in the patient’s room.
  • We kindly ask that you do not touch the machines which may be present in the patient’s room
  • Anyone that has been sick, has an infection or has been recently vaccinated should not visit.  This is for your safety as well as the patient’s.
