Commitment to Safety

Halton Healthcare has a responsibility to ensure our facilities remain as safe as possible. This is why we continue to have a number of protocols and precautions in place to protect our patients, staff, physicians and volunteers from the spread of COVID-19.

Masks are a MUST

As part of our enhanced infection prevention efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we ask that everyone coming into our hospitals and facilities continues to wear a mask.

Please clean your hands with hand sanitizer at the entrances before and after putting your mask on. Wear your mask at all times during your time in the hospital, even when visiting a patient room and clean your hands when you leave.

Emergency Department Safety

There are times when our Emergency Departments are very busy and wait times for less urgent conditions will be longer. During peak times, if there are too many people in a waiting space the patients’ support person may be asked to move to accommodate patients.
