We are dedicated to keeping our communities informed regarding emergent situations that may impact patient care.
See below for specific information regarding a Chippenham Hospital location in your area.
To reduce the spread of respiratory illness, we are taking the following precautions to protect our patients and you:
Surgical and Procedural Patients (age 16 and older) are limited to one adult visitor PER DAY during new visiting hours (6:00 am to 8:00 pm)
Overnight patients are limited to one adult visitor in the following areas:
- Pediatrics/Peds ER
- Labor and delivery
- Pre–and post–surgery (patient advocates)
- End of life
Visitors 15 years old and under are restricted.
Hospital staff will pre-screen all visitors (using standard pre-screening questions) and will require visitors to wear masks. All visitors will be required to wear identification indicating they have been screened.
We recommend and encourage virtual communication with loved ones through the use of digital platforms and apps like FaceTime, Facebook Messenger, Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, etc.
Exceptions may be made for extenuating circumstances.
Thank you for your help in maintaining a safe environment for our patients.
