Infection Prevention and Control Tips For Visiting All Health Care Settings 


How are we keeping you safe?

The safety of our patients, staff and visitors is a top priority for Pembroke Regional Hospital.  


  • All areas of the hospital are thoroughly cleaned frequently by our staff. 
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are available throughout the hospital.  


Passive Screening  


Please note that our hospital has now transitioned from active to passive screening at all entrances.


This means that:


  • Visitors are no longer required to show proof of vaccination upon entry.
  • Patients who feel unwell are asked to ensure that the health care provider at their appointment is aware of their symptoms.
  • Visitors are directed to return home if they feel unwell or have symptoms of any illness that may be contagious.

Masking at PRH

Effective May 23rd, masks are recommended but are no longer mandatory in non-clinical public such as hallways, elevators, stairwells, the cafeteria, the Sunshine Gift Shop and the Mural Café, as well as common areas that are located outdoors. This change applied to staff, physicians, patients and visitors. 


While masking in these areas is no longer mandatory, masks will remain easily accessible for anyone who wishes to wear one.


Masking remains mandatory in all clinical areas and waiting areas / waiting rooms at PRH. This means that anyone entering these spaces must put on a medical grade mask at the point of entry, and wear it at all times while in those locations.


All patients who are able to do so, must wear a mask in waiting areas / waiting rooms, attending outpatient appointments and as indicated on the clinical units.


As a reminder, everyone is asked to stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of illness, unless they need to receive care.
