Comments:

Please clarify the restrictions as there is information out there that end of life patients can have 5 visitors at a time. This has happened in the MSICU on 3/21/20. In addition, the daily updates via video are great but very few computers in the patient care areas have speakers, or any ability to hear what is being said.
