Guest: Giora Netzer, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Epidemiology, and Public Health, University of Maryland A few years ago, Julie Rose was racing to the hospital to visit her father who was gravely ill in the Intensive Care Unit.

And, as it turned out, she’d missed the chance to see her father conscious for the last time. He passed the next day. There’s a nationwide movement to loosen visitor restrictions in critical care hospital settings.
