Protecting our Patients and Staff

What steps is SBGHC taking to ensure the safety of our patients and staff?

 

Hospital Entrance Restrictions

 

  • Access to each of our four hospital sites has been restricted to one entrance.

 

  • All patients entering the hospital will be greeted by a SBGHC staff member who will proactively check for symptoms and ask about recent travel history and contacts.

 

  • Staff and physicians enter the building through a separate entrance.

 

 

Separation of Emergency Department Waiting Room Areas

 

  • We have created designated waiting areas in our Emergency Departments for patients presenting with respiratory symptoms to ensure the separation of people with and without respiratory symptoms.

 

Visitor Restrictions

 

  • Visiting has been restricted at SBGHC's hospital sites until further notice. Exceptions will be made for compassionate reasons, on a case by case basis (i.e. palliative patients, obstetrics). Phone lines will be made available to patients at no charge during this time. 

 

Travel Guidelines for Staff

  • A notice has been issued to all staff that SBGHC is discouraging any travel outside of Canada. All international travel by staff must be registered with their manager, and Occupational Health and Safety will provide staff with monitoring requirements.
