On Monday, June 29th, Joseph Brant Hospital will begin to gradually reduce visitor restrictions and increase access to the hospital, providing much-needed support for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recognizing the importance of family and caregivers in patient care, JBH is implementing new guidelines to allow inpatients to see their family members or caregivers during their stay, while also protecting the health and safety of everyone in the hospital. New Visitor Guidelines - Each inpatient can identify up to two family members/caregivers to visit during their stay - Only one family member/caregiver may be at the bedside at one time - Clinical units will provide approved visitor names to entrance screeners daily - Visiting hours are 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. - Ambulatory Care patients are not permitted to have a visitors accompany them at this time, with very limited individual exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Visitor must pass COVID-19 screening before entering the hospital and follow all health and safety measures while in the hospital, including physical distancing and wearing Personal Protective Equipment when necessary. In addition to these new guidelines, more private rooms on the hospital’s post-partum unit will be opened to allow a patient’s designated care partner to safely remain with them during their entire stay. This change will take effect on July 2. Additional Entrances Opening The hospital is also opening more entrances starting June 29. Patients and visitors can enter the hospital at the North Tower, South Tower and Pedestrian Bridge following successful completion of the screening process. People who require entry to the hospital between 11:30 p.m. – 5:30 a.m., can enter through the 24-hour Emergency Department. While encouraged, patients and visitors are no longer required to wear masks while in the hospital, provided they successfully complete the screening process prior to entry. Hospital staff and physicians will continue to wear masks, and other Personal Protective Equipment as appropriate, to ensure the health and safety of all. For more information, please visit the link In our bio.
Starting next Monday, we are making changes to our visitor policy and are opening additional hospital entrances to visitors and patients. Stay tuned for further updates that will be shared later today. We are also pleased to announce that starting July 2, there are no time restrictions for care partners who wish to remain overnight with new mothers in our Mother and Child Unit after giving birth. #BurlON #JBH
During these times, things can be difficult for our patients and their families and our healthcare teams go above and beyond to provide patient-centred care for all of our patients, including Al.. . Our staff helped ensure that Al, who is a huge Toronto Maple Leafs fan, had a special celebration for his 91st birthday at the hospital. . Working alongside our long-standing community partner, The Angel Project, they were able to make Al’s birthday extra special with an exclusive video from Toronto Maple Leafs’ Doug Gilmour. Soon after, Al received gifts and cake while having a ZOOM call with his family. . Thank you to @theangelproject.ca for their help in making Al’s birthday special. We have an incredible staff at JBH who continue to provide outstanding care for their patients.

Please note the following changes that are based on guidelines provided by the Ontario Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health. As you near your delivery due date, be sure to check in with your healthcare provider at the hospital to confirm details as they may change at any time. 🚼 Care Partners & Visitors Labouring women may be accompanied by a single care partner during labour, birth and the postpartum period. Visitors are not permitted. 👶 Labour & Delivery The care partner can stay for the labour and birth of the baby with no time restrictions. Some conditions apply. The care partner must wear personal protective equipment and must remain in the room at all times. 🚼 Mother and Child Unit (Maternity) After the baby is born, the new mother will be moved to the Mother and Child Unit (Maternity). The care partner is welcome to stay between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. We realize that many new mothers require additional support and help during the night. Extra staff have been added to help support these needs. If you have any questions, please contact us at 905-632-3737.
