    Visiting Hours

    General Visiting Hours

    General visiting hours on patient care units are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. After this time, visitors should follow instruction for after-hours visitors (below). 

    After Hours Visitors

    Sometimes after-hours or overnight company may be beneficial for the patient. Because situations change frequently, after-hours visits can be re-evaluated on a daily basis. If after hour visitation is being requested, we ask that you call the Chief Nursing Officer at (513) 862-4444 and make arrangements in advance.

    To provide a safe and secure environment, we ask that before 8 a.m. and after 8 p.m. visitors enter the Dixmyth Avenue Lobby from the Visitors Garage, then use the intercom to contact the Security Department to request admittance to the hospital.

    Visiting with Children

    There are times a child’s visit can be beneficial to the patient, so we welcome young visitors. However, for their safety both physically and psychologically, as well as for the safety of our patients, children under the age of 14 are discouraged from visiting in the critical care area. If you feel there are exceptions, special arrangements must be made with the nurse caring for your family member prior to visitation.


    Because we are concerned about the health and safety of your children, we ask that you consider a few tips related to their visit:

    • Hospitals need to be quiet places to allow for rest. Please consider the child’s age and normal activity level. Young children enjoy being active. Being confined to a patient room could be difficult.
    • Hospitals are not easily able to accommodate sleepy children. Therefore, if you visit with a child, please consider his or her nap time. A well-rested child will be much happier during the visit.
    • Hospitals are filled with people who may be more susceptible to germs, and young children are more likely to pick up germs. Because of this, please make sure your child is healthy prior to visiting. As a general rule of thumb, if the child has a temperature or a rash, a visit to the hospital should be postponed. Children who have been exposed to communicable diseases may be restricted from visiting. Remember that good hand washing is the first and most important line of prevention in spreading diseases.
    • Children always should be supervised closely while in any area of the hospital and remain in the physical presence of an adult (other than the patient).
