Visitor Restrictions at Rufus Guinchard Health Centre

Jan 16, 2017

Please be advised that temporary visitor restrictions are in place at Rufus Guinchard Health Centre. The visitor restrictions are in place due to a number of patients/residents with influenza like illness.

Visitor restrictions are a series of infection control measures put in place to reduce the risk of spreading infectious diseases which are common in health care facilities. They are designed to help keep clients, families, staff and visitors healthy and safe.
Visitors can help reduce the spread of illness by:
• Cleaning your hands before entering the unit and after visiting your loved ones.
• Visiting only one resident.
• Not visiting if you are experiencing flu-like or gastrointestinal symptoms.
Immediate family members should call 709-861-3139 ext. 4214 or 4261 for further direction about visitation. 

Western Health would like to thank the public for their co-operation during this precautionary measure.
