New Visitor Restrictions Effective December 24th, 2020
As we look toward Christmas, we know it will be celebrated in much different ways this year. As always, regardless of the time of year, our priorities at Hotel Dieu Shaver are the health, comfort and safety of our patients and staff.
We understand the important role family and loved ones have in supporting our patients. In these times, however, it is necessary to protect everyone’s well-being by limiting traffic in the hospital and by practicing social distancing.
Therefore, effective December 24, we are asking that visitors identify up to two people, preferably from the same household, who will be their only designated visitors. No substitutes are allowed as part of controlling viral spread. Each day, one person will be allowed to visit. Our visiting hours remain unchanged (11:30am-1pm and 4:30-6pm).
Please notify friends and family members that this impacts.
We expect these restrictions will be in place for some time, and they may be restricted further as regions manage the spread of COVID-19. We sincerely apologize for the disruption. As has been the case for many months, patients have access to free WIFI service to help make it easier to connect with family through mobile phones and iPads.
Your understanding is greatly appreciated. We will keep you updated on any further changes to visitation. We look forward to welcoming more visitors and families back as soon as it is safe to do so.
We trust everyone will have a safe holiday season, and we are doing our best to ensure that you may interact with your loved ones accordingly.
