COVID-19 Self Assessment

If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, use this self-assessment to help determine how to seek further care.

Visitors:

Currently, our visiting policy at HDH is restricting visitors to limit the number of people coming into our hospital allowing us to focus our resources.  Effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020, we will no longer be permitting visitors to the hospital.

Some exceptions to this may be made for compassionate reasons (e.g. obstetrics, intensive care or palliative patients or a parent escorting their child to the Emergency Department).  If an exception is made, only one (1) visitor per patient will be permitted.

This it to protect the safety of our patients, physicians and staff and we will continue to evaluate the situation.

The front entrance continues to be closed.  All patients must enter through the Emergency Department entrance.

As a COVID-19 precaution, upon arrival, you will be screened before entering the building and will be asked to clean your hands.  You may also be asked to put on a mask.

Reduction of Services:

To limit the number of people entering our building, and reducing services so we can focus our resources, we will be introducing a number of service reductions:

  • Outpatient clinics have been cancelled until further notice, with the exception of the Obstetrics clinic. 
  • Dialysis patients will continue to receive treatments.
  • All non-urgent surgeries will be cancelled.  Emergency and cancer-related surgeries will continue.  Drs Kieffer and Duque will continue to see patients in their offices.
  • All Laboratory services will continue.
  • Diagnostic Imaging will be reviewing all scheduled appointments to determine what can be put on hold; however cancer-related follow-up appointments and urgent tests will continue.

Out gift shop will remain closed, and all of our auxiliary volunteers will be staying home for now.

All construction projects at the hospital have been suspended.


Donations of Personal Protectice Equipment (PPE)

Like many other hospitals, HDH is asking the public for donations of PPE.  If you can support our healthcare workers in preparation for increased cases of COVID-19, we are asking for the following new, unused supplies:

  • Masks - surgical and N95
  • Disposable isolation gowns
  • Gloves - Examination or surgeons gloves (Vinyl/Nitrile)
  • Safety goggles
  • Face shields 

Please email info@hdhospital.ca to arrange delivery/pickup for these items.  Thank you to the community members that have already been reaching out to help.
