When Not to Visit

In some cases, patients with infectious illnesses may need to be moved into 'isolation' to protect their health, and that of others.  If you are in isolation, visitors will be required to follow isolation procedures when visiting.  Sometimes visiting restrictions may be necessary.  Your health care team and your visitors may need to wear masks, gowns and/or gloves.  Signage will be posted on the door of the room so that everyone is aware of what is required for safe care.  It is essential that all precautions and restrictions be followed.
