Waipuna Hospice moves to Alert Level One
Waipuna Hospice family support services will continue to operate as normal in Alert Level One. As an added precaution, we ask that all patients and visitors sign in on arrival. If you are unwell we ask that you stay home. We believe this is an important step towards ensuring the safety of our community.
If a member of our Family Support Team is 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. 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 will help you record those people you have contacted with, so contact tracing can be initiated immediately by the Ministry of Health if a risk is identified. A member of our Family Support team will discuss this with you when they call.
