Hospital Access and Screening

EMPLOYEE, PATIENT & VISITOR SCREENING

At EACH of the designated entrance points, ALL patients and visitors, as well as our employees and professional staff, will be assessed for potential COVID-19 before entering our facilities.

All visitors must wear a mask (medical grade and/or cloth) at ALL times while in the hospital.

To help expedite the screening process, please print and complete a copy of the visitor or staff screening form prior to arrival. These will also be available at the hospital entrance.

Staff are encouraged to download the staff screening app which is used to complete the screening form and receive clearance before coming into work.

Please note that the amount of screening may result in line-ups, so we would advise you to take into account the need to arrive earlier than usual for any appointments.

 

Q&As

What will I be asked at the screening?

Staff will ask you why you are at the hospital and check to see if you have any symptoms including:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore Throat
  • Runny Nose

You will also be asked about recent travel history, contact with someone who has traveled to an impacted area and is sick, and contact with a probable or confirmed case of COVID-19.

Patients and visitors will be asked to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer. We will take you to your appointment, where we will talk about options for your care.

Will my appointments be cancelled?

When people come together, the risk of infection with COVID-19 increases. To lower the chances of COVID-19 for our patients and staff, we will be cancelling some clinic visits for patients who are currently well, and are coming to WRH for routine check-ups or other non-urgent reasons. These appointments will be rebooked for a later date.

Whenever it is possible, and also safe to do so, assessments will be done by phone or video conference.

 

HOSPITAL ACCESS

Windsor Regional Hospital is limiting hospital access and screening all patients staff and visitors entering the facilities. Staff entrances at both Campuses have been reduced to the same entryways that patients and visitors will use.

 

OUELLETTE CAMPUS

There is NO access to the Campus from Ouellette Ave. Visitors may only enter from the main entrance (off Goyeau St.), the third level hallway from the parking garage, or the regular Emergency Department entrance. Patients attending for dialysis appointments at the Bell building can enter from the east side main entrance. Patients coming to the Jeanne Mance building can continue to use the east entrance.
