Waipuna Hospice moves to Alert Level One
If our clinical staff are planning to visit you during Alert Level One they will check in with you before a visit to clarify your circumstances, as well as identify if you have been exposed to anyone known to have Covid-19 or are experiencing symptoms. If they have, our team will be required to wear Personal Protective Equipment. If this is not required, you can still ask members of our team to wear a mask. This is to ensure we reduce any risks to our patient’s, their whānau, our staff, and the wider community.
We have also developed a Visitor Tracing and Contact Details Form. This form form will help you record those people you have contact with so contact tracing can be initiated immediately by the Ministry of Health if a risk is identified. Our nurse will discuss this with you when they call.
