Visitor restrictions are in place at Corner Brook Long Term Care Home

Dec 27, 2017

Please be advised that temporary visitor restrictions are in place at Corner Brook Long Term Care Home. The visitor restrictions are in place due to a number of residents on 3 North Bakeapple Avenue (637-3931) and Protective Care Unit Blueberry Crescent (637-637-3993) with influenza like illness. Immediate family members should call the numbers provided for further direction about visitation.

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.

Visitors can help reduce the spread of illness by:

•             Cleaning your hands before entering the unit and after visiting your loved ones.

•              Visiting only one resident.

•              Not visiting if you are experiencing flu-like or gastrointestinal symptoms.

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