Critical Care Units Visitor Guidelines
We are at Ganzouri Specialized Hospital greatly appreciate your cooperation, understanding and adherence to these important guidelines which are designed to allow us to provide a healing environment dedicated to our patients' needs.
Ganzouri Specialized Hospital encourages family visit during the recovery and healing process of our patients. We know that having loved ones nearby during hospitalization makes our patients more comfortable and helps speed recovery. However, visitation guidelines are required to ensure that our primary concern, the care to our patients, is not compromised.
The visitor guidelines here at Ganzouri Specialized Hospital are in no way designed to restrict family access to hospitalized loved ones, but rather to establish policies which provide our patients with ample time to rest, receive needed medical procedures and medications, and to heal. These guidelines ensure a decreased risk of infection for the patient.
