The virtual visitation program allows patients to connect with requested visitors who cannot be with them while they are in the hospital. The program allows family and friends to visit over a secure video network when face-to-face interaction is not possible.
Vitual Visitation sessions should last no more than 15 minutes each and patients are limited to one virtual visit per day. The visit will be organized at the discretion of the nursing staff and will only be available if the equipment is not benig utilized for clinical purposes.
