Arohanui Hospice Services and COVID-19
We are currently doing everything we can at Arohanui Hospice to protect our patients, families/whānau, staff, and volunteers. With the situation constantly evolving, this page is a reference point to keep all of our supporters and families up to date.
We ask that all visitors call us before visiting on 06 356 6606
Within the traffic light system we have altered our visiting hours to between the hours of 10am and 7pm.
The limit on visitors is two per patient at any one time – this will assist us to ensure the safety of everyone at Arohanui Hospice.
We will also ask that all visitors complete a declaration form to enable us to trace contacts if required before visiting.
All visitors must use hand sanitiser on arrival and on departure.
We understand the impact this may have for families/whānau wanting to be together at what we understand is a very difficult time. Staff will be happy to discuss this further with family/whānau members.
We continue to ask that you consider the following questions if you are planning to visit Arohanui Hospice:
- Are you are at risk of having COVID-19?
- Have you been in close physical contact with someone who is suspected of or is a confirmed case of COVID-19?
- Do you have flu-like symptoms, fever, or acute respiratory illness?
If you are planning to visit the Inpatient Unit and have answered YES to any of the above – DO NOT ENTER THE HOSPICE BUILDINGS – call us on 06 356 6606 for advice and support.
Arohanui Hospice continues to update our pandemic plan daily.
