Ascension welcomes family and friends of our patients. We’ve provided the information below to help make your visit convenient and comfortable.
St. Mary's of Michigan Standish Hospital encourages family members and friends to spend time with patients and residents. We welcome visitors during our regular visiting hours which are 8 am - 8 pm daily. The Emergency Department is the only after hour access to the hospital.
Visitors should check with the staff at the Nurse's Station prior to entering a patient or resident room. Family members may phone 24 hours a day to get current information on the patient's status. A PIN number is provided to the patient's immediate family upon being admitted to the facility. This is required to receive information pertaining the patient's health.
Visitors bringing any food into the hospital are required to check with the nursing staff before giving it to the patient or resident.
To support a healthy recovery for patients and residents of the Skilled Nursing Facility, a quiet time is incorporated into each day from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. Visitors are asked to honor this time and plan their visits before or after these time frames.
Quiet Time hours observed to promote a healing environment St. Mary’s of Michigan, St. Mary's of Michigan Standish Hospital, and St. Joseph Health System has designated Quiet Time hours to help create a healing environment for our patients. These times are from 2 pm – 4 pm and 11 pm – 4 am. Quiet Time hours are crucial for patient satisfaction as well as for healing purposes. Studies show that noise creates stress and is detrimental in the healing process for patients. Sleep is also an important factor in the recovery process. We ask all patients, visitors and as well as our associates to help us maintain a quiet, healing environment. Some ways that we are supporting Quiet Time hours are:
- Dimming the lights where appropriate
- Keeping overhead paging to a minimum
- Phone conversations should be in a designated area away from all patient rooms
- Patients should lower the volume when listening to music or watching TV
