To ensure the safety of patients, families and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, visiting restrictions for South Bruce Grey Health Centre’s (SBGHC) four hospital sites are currently in place.
We recognize that limiting visiting can be very difficult for patient and families, however, patient safety is our top priority.
We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding.
Patients can identify their Partners in Care to support them during their visit or stay as outlined below until further notice. Partners in Care are individuals identified by the patient as support persons that they would like present during their hospital stay. If there are other special circumstances that affect visiting requirements, this will be reviewed on a case by case basis with the care team.
General visiting remains closed at this time.
|Patient Category/Location||Partners in Care Permitted|
|Inpatients||Two Partners in Care at the bedside at a time.|
One Partner in Care if required.
If required, up to two parents for patients that are minors.
|Family Birthing Centre||Two Partners in Care at the bedside at a time.|
|End of Life||Please consult with the clinical team for additional visiting options for compassionate reasons.|
SBGHC strongly encourages Partners in Care to ensure they are fully vaccinated prior to visiting the hospital.
**Please note, all patients admitted to SBGHC will be tested for COVID-19. For patients who have symptoms of COVID-19 and/or COVID-19 is suspected, Partners in Care can begin visiting once a negative result is received.
