We know how important visits are. They are important for residents’ health and wellbeing to stay connected with family and friends, and it’s lovely for staff to see the joy that spending time with loved ones brings. We are always happy to welcome visitors to our homes to spend quality time with their loved ones.
Springfield Healthcare’s priority is to ensure we minimise risks and the negative impact outbreaks can have on our residents. If an outbreak is suspected, we will conduct a risk assessment to determine whether increased control measures are needed. We will communicate this with all visitors ahead of time.
If you would like to visit a resident who has tested positive, we ask that visits are limited to one person, inside the home, and we ask that visitors follow our IPC processes and wear recommended PPE.
If you would like to visit a resident in one of our homes and are feeling unwell, we ask that you hold off from visiting, even if you’ve tested negative for COVID-19. Please be patient and wait at least 5 days after you are feeling better before coming to see us.
