Visiting Policy:

SHHA recognizes the importance of patients having the ability to receive visitors while under our care.

SHHA reserves the right to ask visitors to leave a patient’s room, treatment room, or in-patient unit, at any time, in order to respect a patient’s right to privacy and comply with the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA 2004).

In-patient Unit

Two visitors at a time will be permitted in the patient’s room unless otherwise posted. It is always best to check at the Nurses’ Station if there is any question regarding visiting restrictions.

Emergency Room/Outpatient Areas

One support person may accompany the patient. Special consideration may be given when the patient is a child or person with special needs. If possible, please plan your visit so that patient care, therapies, and rest can be scheduled. We ask that in order to protect our patients that you delay your visit if you are feeling unwell.

Spiritual and Religious Care

SHHA has relationships with established religious traditions and serves patients and families of all faiths. Please speak with your nurse if you need to contact a pastor or clergy.
