A Scent-free Environment
SJCCC strives to be a scent-free environment through scent awareness and reduction. Exposure to scented products can cause adverse health effects to individuals with scent sensitivities. Thus, the organization strives to minimize the exposure of clients, residents, patients, staff and visitors to scented products.
We ask our visitors to please respect these guidelines and refrain from using scented products prior to entering and while present at SJCCC, as well as refrain from bringing scented products such as highly-scented flowers into SJCCC. Thank you for your cooperation.
Infection Control Precautions for All Visitors
In order to ensure the safety of our residents and patients, all healthy visitors are asked to follow best practice guidelines for infection prevention by:
- Sanitizing your hands upon arrival through the entrance of our facility.
- Wash or sanitize your hands when entering and exiting the room of a resident or patient.
Please reschedule your visit if you are experiencing any of the following flu-like symptoms: fever, cough, chills, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting. Additionally, if you are experiencing other types of illnesses that may be contagious such as a rash, consider waiting until you are well before visiting.
Important to note: when an outbreak of influenza or respiratory illness is in effect at SJCCC, please follow all Outbreak Notice Guidelines for visiting as published on the home page of our website, www.sjccc.ca.
In some instances, visiting could be temporarily suspended for a particular nursing unit during an active outbreak.
