Pembroke Regional Hospital Visiting Rules

Here is the latest update on visitor restrictions at the Pembroke Regional Hospital, as of today. The executive summary is – patients can have one caregiver / family / support person per day now, and at their request it can be their clergy / priest / faith leader. So for now, clergy can’t come in and get the list from their denomination and go see their own folks. Sorry, but if one patient asks for a clergy’s presence and chooses them to be their one person for that day, they can by all means see them. Also, if a patient is imminently dying (estimated by doc in their last week) four people at once can come, and clergy can certainly be part of that.

I will do my best to keep you all updated!
