Visitor Restrictions Lifted On Maternal Child Units at Cape Breton Regional Hospital

Visitor restrictions are being lifted on the Maternal Child units at Cape Breton Regional Hospital in Sydney.

These restrictions were in place on the Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU), Obstetrics (including Labour/Delivery), the Mother/Baby and Pediatric Units at the Regional Hospital. They were put in place in January due to cases of general respiratory illnesses among patients.

Although the restrictions have been lifted, people are asked to use caution when they visit these units or any hospitals, community health centres and continuing care units. People should not visit if they or other people in their households are sick. People who visit should always thoroughly clean their hands before and after they visit a patient or a resident.

Nova Scotia Health Authority thanks the public for its cooperation while these visitor restrictions were in place.
