Hospital Continues Gradual Expansion of Visitation


The Deep River and District Hospital recognizes the importance of visitors to the emotional and physical well-being of patients while they are in hospital, and looks forward to continuing a safe and gradual expansion of visitation.

Beginning on Thursday, November 25, two general visitors per inpatient per day will be welcomed during visiting hours. Visits by designated Essential Caregivers remain in addition to the two general visitors per day.

All general visitors to the Deep River and District Hospital must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, and must follow safety requirements such as COVID-19 screening, distancing, masking, and more. General visitors are required to visit between the hours of 10:00 am and 11:30 am, or between 5:30 pm and 7:00 pm.

At this time, visitation guidelines remain unchanged in the Four Seasons Lodge Long-Term Care Home. Those looking to arrange a visit at the Four Seasons Lodge, are asked to contact 613-584-3333 x 7305 or assistance@drdh.org and full visitor requirements will be provided.

General visitation for Emergency Department patients or accompaniment for outpatient appointments remains restricted. Emergency Department patients or those attending the hospital for a scheduled appointment may have one person remain with them if support is required.

Hospitals across our region will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in our communities, and visiting policies may be adjusted as necessary to keep the health of patients, residents, and staff at the forefront.
