Patients and Visitors
If you have questions about your care that are not covered in this section, or need any additional information about the hospital, please check with your nurse or physician.
Visitors are always welcome at Saint Thomas West Hospital. Each patient floor has a comfortable visitors' waiting area. In addition, a larger Family Waiting Area is available on the first floor between the Seton Garage and the Main Information Desk. Visitors are also welcome to get a breath of fresh air in our meditative garden located around the corner from the Discharge Lobby.
Only two visitors are permitted in a patient's room at a time. In some cases, a friend or family member may stay overnight using the recliner in your room. To obtain permission and an overnight guest pass, please speak with a nurse.
To reduce the risk of infection, children under 8 years old are not allowed on patient floors. No children under 18 years of age are allowed to visit Special or Critical Care except in extreme circumstances.
