daily. Mail delivered to the hospital after a patient’s discharge
will be forwarded to their home. For the safety of our patients, flowers
and plants are not allowed in the Intensive Care Unit. Additionally, we
ask that you do not bring Mylar balloons into the hospital as some patients
may be allergic.
