CKHA Opens Outdoor Visiting Area for Patients and Families
CHATHAM-KENT: April 14, 2022 – Effective Friday, April 15, CKHA is pleased to open outdoor space for visiting with patients. This will be available at both Chatham and Wallaceburg sites.
Both sites will offer visiting outdoor from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 7 days a week (weather permitting), for eligible patients on all inpatient units. The care team in collaboration with the patient and care partner(s) will determine if the patient is safe to participate in outdoor visits. Patients who are permitted outdoor visiting will be accompanied to and from the outdoor visiting space by their care partner and can have additional visitors outdoors at that time.
Visitors, care partners and patients will be asked to remain masked and distanced during their visit and to refrain from consuming food and drink.
Patients and care partners who wish to learn more may contact the Patient & Family Communication Liaison Office by telephone: 519.352.6400 x 6917 or email: PFCL@ckha.on.ca. Availability is subject to spacing and seating.
