Patient Visitation Changes, updated September 2nd, 2021

At this time, patients will no longer have to specifically designate visitors; however, only one visitor per patient is permitted inside at a time. All visitors will be required to sign off on Hotel Dieu Shaver’s Visitation Guidelines, acknowledging and committing to their responsibilities as a visitor, ensuring the safest environment for everyone at HDS.

At this time, the visitation time blocks are as follows:

WEEKDAYS (Monday to Friday)

1st Floor (1 East & 1 West)             

3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. &  6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Hotel Dieu Shaver remains diligent in respecting our staff, physicians, patients and families, while aligning with our ongoing COVID-19 response. We are sincerely committed to providing the safest environment possible and are extremely grateful for the ongoing support.

Outpatient Services Ramp Up Plan 

We are pleased to announce that Hotel Dieu Shaver has resumed outpatient services based on a gradual phased approach. In doing so, we are committed to providing information that will help ensure high quality, safe care and communicate with patients and families about this gradual phased process.

Beginning Monday February 01st, 2021, HDS began reintroducing services for outpatient programs. As per our last re-opening of outpatient services in July 2020, a provincial tiered methodology will be applied. As a reminder, this methodology includes an ethical decision-making framework in determining a phased/graduated ramp-up approach reflecting the prioritization of patients in accordance to their health care needs, risks, and available supports. As we are applying a tiered approach to resuming outpatient services, we will contact you directly once we are ready to provide you with an appointment.

We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
