Visitor Restrictions at Western Memorial Regional Hospital

Feb 28, 2018

Please be advised that temporary visitor restrictions are in place at Western Memorial Regional Hospital. The visitor restrictions are in place due to a number of patients on the Orthopedic Unit (2D) with gastrointestinal illness. Immediate family members of patients call 637-5000 Ext. 5302 for further direction about visitation.

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 patient.
• Not visiting if you are experiencing flu-like or gastrointestinal symptoms.

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