Visiting hours at all Public and Private Wards at the Princess Margaret Hospital have been suspended as part of updated prevention measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Updates regarding patients will be made to the identified and/or nearest relative and/or guardian by the assigned physician via telephone.
Meals and beverages delivered for patients will not be accepted during this restricted period. If a patient requires a personal item, the hospital will contact the identified and/or nearest relative regarding the request; in this case, the delivery must be pre-arranged with Ward Management.
Efforts are being made to provide video-conferencing for our patients on the Children’s Ward, so that they can interact daily with a parent or guardian. The public is asked to note all public health announcements, public service announcements and updates regarding health and hospital services during this time.
