Gradual resumption of services during the pandemic
Starting on May 11, 2020, some of our hospital departments increased their activity levels. These services involved include surgical suites (elective surgeries), some ambulatory care clinics, medical imaging departments (x-ray) and mental health services. Note that these services are available with an appointment only. Anyone who comes to one of our facilities without authorization from a doctor will have to return home and contact their health care provider.
The most critical and urgent cases will take priority over elective cases. Vitalité Health Network will contact all patients whose appointments were cancelled due to COVID-19.
All patients who come to a Network facility for an appointment will undergo COVID-19 screening. They will be asked to wear a mask and to clean their hands well. Homemade face coverings and masks will be accepted for people not showing symptoms of COVID-19.
Visits are prohibited
Visits are prohibited during the pandemic, except in the cases below.
Visits to the Obstetric, Pediatric and Intensive Care units are restricted to one designated visitor per patient.
Patients nearing the end of life or who will receive medical assistance in dying are allowed two designated visitors (one at a time), except in exceptional cases where one of the visitors would require assistance to go to the patient’s bedside.
Visits are prohibited at the Campbellton Regional Hospital, except for patients nearing end of life, Pediatrics, Intensive Care and Obstetrics, where only one designated visitor is allowed per patient.
The designated visitors must not have any symptoms of COVID-19 and must be healthy. They must follow the staff's guidelines on handwashing, on mask and personal protective equipment usage, if applicable, and on isolation precautions in the patient’s room (if the patient is a suspected COVID-19 case).
