The Burn Center Visiting Hours

For patient comfort and safety, only 2 visitors may be present in a patient’s room at a time. Children should not be left unsupervised while visiting a patient in either the Burn Intensive Care Unit or the Burn Step Down Unit. Mylar balloons (NOT latex) are allowed in both units.

Infection Control:

Infection is very dangerous for a burn patient because the loss of skin removes the natural protection from contamination. ALL visitors must follow certain rules for out patients’ protection.

  • Do not visit if you are ill

  • Wash your hands before and after visiting

  • Protective garb must be worn when visiting patients in the Burn Intensive Care Unit. Instructions along with gowns, gloves and masks are available in the unit.
