Family Presence Guidelines (Visiting)


STEGH has eliminated set visiting hours and welcomes family members, as defined by the patient, as partners in care. Click here to view our Family Presence Guidelines in full.

Families and other partners in care are welcome 24 hours a day according to patient preference. Children supervised by an adult are welcome.

Family supporting a patient between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. are asked to stay in the patient’s room and advise staff when leaving. The East entrance is the entry and exit point during these hours

During a declared infection outbreak (ie: influenza) or other hospital emergency, visiting may be restricted or cancelled to ensure patient and staff safety.

All family and visitors will be required to follow hand hygiene and personal protective equipment protocols.
