Distribution of Patient and Visitor Passes Begins at our Hospitals July 1

Our new standardized screening process for patients and visitors at all LVHN hospitals begins July 1. Here are details about how the screening process works.

Signs are now located at hospital entrances where screening is taking place that inform people they must wear a mask.

When visitors pass the temperature and health screening, they will be given a Visitor Pass and sticker that indicates they successfully passed the screening. Those who do not pass the temperature or health screening will be asked to postpone their visit.

Patients coming for a test or procedure will receive a temperature and health screening. After the screening, they will be given a Patient Pass indicating the answers to the health screening questions. Patients will not be asked to postpone their visit even if they answer yes to any of the questions. They will be directed to give the screening information to the registrar at their destination.

Our new screening process is the latest way we are taking all the necessary precautions to keep our colleagues, patients and visitors safe.
