Restriction to visitors at Quinte Health Care (QHC) Hospitals
Update: 3/14/2020: We are asking anyone going to Trenton Memorial Hospital to please enter the building through the Emergency Door entrance. The main entrance of TMH will not be open. Thank you.
With the heightened precautions resulting from the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are asking for the public’s cooperation to reduce the potential risks to our patients by restricting the number of visitors to Quinte Health Care’s four hospitals – Belleville General Hospital, North Hastings Hospital, Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital and Trenton Memorial Hospital.
While additional measures may be necessary in the coming days - effective immediately, we are asking that visits be limited to one visitor per patient. Allowances will be made based on compassionate grounds depending on the circumstances.
Please note: Visitors who are feeling unwell; have an infection; have symptoms of respiratory illness, symptoms of flu-like illnesses or symptoms of other communicable diseases should not visit. In certain cases, visitors will be required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to support a safe environment for patients who may have a contagious condition. Visitors must perform hand hygiene with soap and water or alcohol based hand rub before and after visiting a patient. Also, staff may need to ask visitors to leave for infection control reasons so we ask that visitors please respect that request during this time.
