Visiting hours for patients

Standards of hygiene, health and behaviour

Visiting a patient admitted to the hospital requires compliance with some simple hygiene rules, in the interest of protecting the health of the patient and the visitor:

  • disinfect hands with the hydroalcoholic gel placed at the entrance of each room, before and after the visit;
  • do not sit on patients’ beds;
  • do not place clothes and objects (bags, newspapers, etc.) on patients’ beds, tables, bedside tables;
  • avoid touching medical devices;
  • stay at home if you are sick or not in perfect health;
  • do not crowd the hospital room: the ideal would be one visitor per patient, and in any case never more than two;
  • before bringing food and/or flowers it is better to check that this is allowed. Although home-cooked food and flowers are sources of good cheer for the sick person, this can be a risk for patients on special diets, and flowers and plants can be sources of allergies or infections;
  • if the person to be visited is in isolation, before entering, ask the nurses what the rules of the department are (for example, if you have to wear masks or protective gowns). When visiting more than one patient, hands should be washed when entering and/or leaving each room;
  • observe the ban on the use of mobile phones, where indicated.
