Visitor Restrictions

Western Memorial Regional Hospital

Visitor precautions are in place at Western Memorial Regional Hospital, on the ALC Unit (Third Floor). Patients on the ALC Unit on third floor may have one designated visitor visit them in hospital.  

Corner Brook Long Term Care Home

Each resident of Corner Brook Long Term Care Home may now have one designated visitor visit them, except on Bakeapple Ave (3 South) where visitor restrictions remain. Exceptions may be made in extenuating circumstances and family members of residents on Bakeapple Ave (3 South) are asked to call 637-3999, Ext. 3351 to inquire about visiting.

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.

Help reduce the spread of illness

Visitors can help reduce the spread of illness by doing the following:

-  Do not visit if you are ill.
-  Clean your hands before entering a room and after visiting your loved ones. 
-  Limit your visit to only one patient/resident. 
-  Wear protective equipment, such as masks, gown and gloves for the duration of the visit, if required. Nursing staff will advise which equipment is required, and how to properly apply and remove it.

Please do NOT visit any health care facility if you feel ill or are experiencing flu-like or gastrointestinal symptoms. 

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