- End-of-life patients can have only one essential support person.
- Pediatric patients can have only one essential support person.

All essential support persons must be 18 years of age or older and in good health. They will be screened at the entrance before being allowed to proceed. If they do not pass the screening questions, then an alternate support person can take their place.
