In support of providing a home-like environment, it is acknowledged that Residents may have visitors at various hours. However, visitors will be encouraged to attend between 12:00 pm and 8:00 pm to facilitate the Residents' care needs and building security.
Exceptions to the visiting hours will be made on compassionate grounds (ie. palliative care, ill child/ infant and exceptional circumstances) in consultation with the Patient Care Manager.
- Children under 12 must be appropriately supervised by an accompanying adult at all times.
- If you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, please do not visit.
- For Emergency Room patients, the nurse will determine if visitors are allowed (on a case by case basis).
- Visiting restrictions will apply in the event of an infectious disease outbreak.
As a health care organization, our primary focus is the health of our community and it's for this reason that smoking is not permitted anywhere on SSCHS property. This includes Chapleau General Hospital, Chapleau Medical Center, Bignucolo Residence Courtyard, Cedar Grove and areas previously designated as smoking areas. The smoking ban also includes parking lots and personal vehicles parked on SSCHS property. All patients, visitors and staff members will be required to leave the SSCHS property entirely, if they wish to smoke.
