Limiting patient personal items and drop-off
Health Centre limiting items that can be dropped off for patients.
In addition to the ‘no visitor’ policy now in place, we are strictly limiting the items that can be dropped off for a patient.
Patient items are limited to: communication devices, hard surface items that can be wiped clean, such as cell phones, tablets, laptops, and charging devices.
Medications from home can be dropped off if they have been requested by the patient’s care team.
If clothing is required for discharge, the person picking up the patient is asked to bring the clothing with them at time of discharge.
Items can only be dropped off inside the health centre’s main entrance, weekdays only, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Anyone dropping off items at WPSHC must be symptom-free and successfully pass screening questions.
Health centre staff are actively working with patients and families to support communication and virtual visits using technology and communication devices.
WPSHC is thankful for the support and cooperation we are receiving from patients, families, and the communities we are privileged to serve.
