Visiting Guidelines

Please note that visiting guidelines have changed as a result of COVID-19.

LHSC is committed to working with patients and families to provide compassionate, high-quality care. We believe it is important for patients to experience the support of family and friends.

  • Visiting is based on the condition, care needs, and expressed wishes of each patient in the unit
  • For this reason, visiting times may vary between patients and from one day to the next. We ask patients or visitors to check with unit staff about optimal visiting times
  • As well, visiting may be interrupted to provide appropriate patient care. Visiting will be restricted to protect the privacy rights of other patients or to maintain safety
  • Family members supporting a patient between the overnight hours of 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. are asked to remain in the patient’s room and advise unit staff when coming to and leaving the unit

Please speak with your care provider if this does not meet your needs
