- Patients with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities

All visitors are encouraged but no longer required to wear a well-fitting mask throughout the hospital. Additionally, visitors will be required to show photo identification. Acceptable forms of photo identification include a driver’s license, passport, green card, government-issued ID and U.S. military ID.
At the end of the visit, please check out at the hospital lobby to allow the next visitor to come to the unit.
Additional Visitor Guidelines
- Emergency Department: One visitor per patient.

At this time, we are not accepting deliveries for patients, including deliveries from local florists, Amazon and UPS to name a few. Additionally, potted plants and Mylar/latex balloons are not permitted.
Visitors can bring floral arrangements to patients with the exception of those in intensive care units (ICUs) and/or if the patient has a restriction based on their treatment or diagnosis. Before the visit, it is best for visitors to check with unit staff to ensure the patient is permitted to have items brought to their room.
Thank you for your support in helping us to provide a safe and healing environment for everyone.
An abstract (from the Latin "referre" - to report, to report) is a small written work devoted to a certain topic, a review of sources in a certain direction. Usually the purpose of an abstract is to collect and systematize knowledge on a specific topic 500 word essay or problem. The topic of the essay should captivate, first of all, the student himself, because he will have to work hard on its disclosure. Topics for essays are usually suggested by teachers. The student chooses an interesting topic for him from the general list and coordinates his choice with the teacher.
For the health of its staff, patients, and visitors, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital is a smoke-free environment. Smoking is not permitted anywhere at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital including the parking lots and the grounds.
