Don t cause additional worries by talking about problems at Home or work. Keep the visit Brief. Visits should be limited to to to 20 minutes because patients need rest. Sometimes patients Are reluctant to admit they Are too tired to talk. Do not visit in groups. No More than two or three visitors should be in the room at one time because the patient May have difficulty visiting with a Large number. Keep an Eye on children. If the nursing staff gives approval for children s visits keep them quiet and the visit Brief. Don t interfere with care.
