In-Room Virtual Visits

Patient Instructions

Your friends and family may not be able to visit right now, but they can still feel close by. Seeing loved ones while you receive care is vital to your health and well being. Due to COVID-19, 麻豆传媒官方入口 currently has visitor restrictions in place that limit the ability for your friends and family to visit you during your stay. But that doesn’t mean you can’t connect - many phones, tablets, and computers have free and easy ways to communicate with your friends and family via video, voice or text.

麻豆传媒官方入口 has iPads for your use if you do not have access to a smartphone, tablet or computer. Please ask your nurse for more information so that you may virtually visit with loved ones.

Tips for virtually connecting with loved ones using your personal device

Step 1: Find an App for That

If your smartphone, tablet or computer has a camera there is a good chance you have an app already installed to connect with your loved ones virtually. You and the person you are trying to connect with must use the same app. If your personal device has a camera but does not have FaceTime or Google Duo, you can download one of the apps below to connect with loved ones via video, voice or text.

Step 2: Connect to Wi-Fi

If you plan to use the video feature of the app you have selected, it’s best to connect to Wi-Fi. Please see in-room instructions, or ask your care team about how you can connect to our guest Wi-Fi.
