A Middlesex Health visitor must wear a mask at all times, including in patient rooms. If a visitor does not have a mask, or if their mask fits poorly, they will be given a mask when they arrive.
A visitor may leave the premises and come back during visiting hours. While in the hospital, they are expected to stay in their patient's room unless they need to go to the bathroom, use a vending machine, or go to the cafeteria.
If the visitor is asked by staff to step out of a patient's room, they can wait immediately outside of the room, or outside of the building. Visitors will not be allowed to wait in waiting rooms or the lobby.
Visitors are allowed to bring belongings to a patient, as well as food. However, Middlesex Health does not accept responsibility for personal belongings.
Food coming from outside of the hospital cannot be stored in a unit refrigerator. All food must be consumed within a reasonable timeframe, or it must be nonperishable.
