Thank you sincerely for visiting Cottage hospital.

- The presence of visitors would be medically or therapeutically contraindicated in the best clinical judgment of clinical staff.
- The presence of visitors would interfere with the care of or the rights of any patient.
- Visitors are engaging in disruptive, threatening, or violent behavior toward any staff member, patient, or another visitor
- Visitors are noncompliant with written hospital policy.
