Visitor Guidelines

Visiting hours at PRHC are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, 365 days a year.

PRHC encourages visits from family and friends throughout the patient healing process. We know that having loved ones nearby while in hospital makes patients more comfortable and speeds up their recovery.
 
We ask that only two visitors be bedside at any one time to be sure roommates have the rest they require. (Ask about access to “common areas” for visits of more than two people). Please keep noise and activity to a minimum. Individuals who are feeling under the weather, including a cough or cold, are asked to delay visiting the Health Centre until the illness has passed.
 
Visiting hours may be extended or restricted in any hospital area, dependent on patient needs and condition. The guiding principle for all visiting hour decisions is to maintain a balance between the patient’s need for effective care and the importance of visitor support to the patient’s recovery. Units may, at their own discretion, in individual cases, exercise flexibility with the standard hours and number of permitted visitors.

We thank you in advance for your appreciation of our need to preserve our patients' rights to privacy and confidentiality.
