Continuation of the suspension of visits for the hospitals of Saint-Jérôme, Saint-Eustache and Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts
Considering the increase in cases of COVID-19 in the region and as a preventive measure, the Laurentian Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS) is extending the temporary suspension of visits to the hospitals of Saint-Jérôme, Saint-Eustache and Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts until further notice.
Only one caregiver, per day, will be authorized to visit a hospitalized person. The establishment will support the caregiver in integrating and understanding infection prevention and control measures.
This temporary measure stems from an exemption from ministerial directives obtained by the Ministry of Health and Social Services. It aims to limit the circulation of the virus in targeted hospitals and thus protect users and staff who strive to provide quality and safe care on a daily basis. Exceptional measures may apply in certain circumstances, in particular for access to birth and palliative care units.
