    We do not have a policy that restricts visitors. We welcome siblings as we feel that it helps siblings cope when they are able to participate. During the summer months we use summer volunteers to assist with playroom activities and control.

    thank you

    I was wondering if anyone could share their policy on visitation in the clinic- ie how many adults are allowed to accompany a child?  Are siblings allowed?  How do you accommodate siblings or additional visitors?  Do you offer any resources to families who do not have alternative options?

    In our clinic we allow up to two adults in clinic with a child and do not allow siblings, however this becomes difficult to manage especially during the summer when school is out and we are actively looking for alternatives to offer our patients.    

    Thank you in advance.
