This week, Bluewater Health has moved from one to two Designated Care Partners (DCP) at the bedside for in-patients in all units. The total number of DCPs per patient remains at four.
For those coming to the hospital for out-patient appointments, individuals who require assistance are permitted to have a plus one accompany them during their visit.
In order to maintain the safety of patients and staff, it is important to note that current practices may change or revert back, depending on the level of transmission risk as determined by the IPAC Committee and provincial recommendations.
Reminder: Regular visiting hours at Bluewater Health are daily from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm.
