All VCH facilities restricted to essential visits only
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working closely with the Ministry of Health to protect the health of everyone in B.C., including patients and residents at all Vancouver Coastal Health sites.
Essential visits include:
- Compassionate care (e.g. end of life, critical illness)
- Visits paramount to patient, client, resident care and well-being, such as assistance with feeding or mobility
- Existing registered volunteers providing services related to the above
At our long-term care homes, VCH has issued a Public Health Order further restricting visitation to family members and spiritual advisor of residents who are clinically assessed to be at the end of their lives.
These restrictions are in place to protect the health of our patients, clients, residents, staff and physicians. Thank you for your understanding. We will advise the public when they are lifted.
