Jul 16, '08I know this is a really old thread, but I wanted to bump it. The nurses on my unit (myself included) are interested to know the visiting hours on other units and pros/cons of them.

The visitors bring in ridiculous amounts of contraband and they usually upset the patients at some point. Plus, it's impossible to do any 1:1 with the visitors there. I know that a couple of other psych floors in our area have visiting hours that are an hour through the week and 2 hours through the weekend. What are your visiting hours?
