Visiting hours have been established to enable staff to provide the best care for all TICU patients. No more than two visitors are allowed with a patient at a time, and visits may be interrupted by TICU staff when medically necessary. Visitors are required to turn off cellular phones before entering the hospital.
When selecting a gift for a patient, please remember that balloons, flowers and fruit baskets are not allowed in the TICU.
There is a fee for parking at Rhode Island Hospital. We are unable to validate parking tickets. If your loved one is hospitalized for more than two weeks, immediate family members may park free of charge in the hospital's public lots. For more details about parking, please call parking information at 401-444-4013.
We understand it may be difficult to leave your loved one during this time. But because TICU nurses work 24 hours a day to care for patients, family members are discouraged from sleeping in the patient's room. If you think it's necessary for you to stay overnight, you are welcome to stay in our waiting area.
A physician is on duty 24 hours a day on the TICU. The physician will keep you informed of changes in your loved one's condition. If you need to speak to the physician, a nurse will assist you.
