Visiting Patients

Visiting Patients

At SHN, we value the important role that families and visitors play in supporting patients. We are also committed to the safety of patients, families, and our health care teams.

Effective March 20, our visitor policy has changed.

For everyone’s protection NO VISITORS will be allowed except for the following:

parter or support person with pregnant woman WOMEN IN LABOUR
+1 Partner/Support Person


parent or support person with childPAEDIATRIC/NICU PATIENTS
+1 Parent/Support Person

Exceptions will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

No visitors under the age of 16 are permitted at this time. All visitors will be actively screened prior to entrance.

SHN will work with our patients and their loved ones to encourage and support alternative forms of communication and interaction during this time, including virtual and telephone visits. This change is difficult for patients and for families, and we appreciate how hard it can be to not see your loved ones.

For questions regarding the new visitor policy, please contact the unit directly.
