Family presence when at the hospital is important to a patient's good health. For the safety of our staff and patients, everyone entering the building is screened for COVID-19 symptoms and asked to wear a mask. As we continue to work through our visitation policy, please know the following is in place in the meantime:
Using Your Own Device: With visiting restrictions in effect, we encourage families to reach out to their loved ones who are staying at the hospital, by using their own device for a virtual visit.
Using a CCH device: If your loved one at the hospital does not have access to a device like a tablet or a smart phone, Cornwall Hospital can help by lending a hospital owned tablet to facilitate a virtual visit!
What you need for a Virtual Family Visit:• A valid email address• A computer/tablet or phone with a camera and microphone• The Zoom App
A request to set up a virtual visit can be made by emailing email@example.com or by calling 613-938-4240 ext: 4740 and is available between the hours of 8h00 and 16h00 7 days a week. Information like the patient’s room number/name and time of desired visit are helpful details to include when communicating.
