Arohanui Hospice Services and COVID-19
We are currently doing everything we can at Arohanui Hospice to protect our patients, families, staff and volunteers. With the situation changing rapidly, we want to keep all of our supporters and families up to date.
The limit on visitors is two per room – 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.
If you are wanting to visit the IPU and you have – 1) Been in MIQ in the last 14 days or 2) normally reside in Auckland or have visited Auckland in the last 14 days, please call our reception in advance of visiting for instructions.
We understand the impact this may have for families wanting to be together at what we understand is a very difficult time and staff will be happy to discuss this further with family members.
If you would like to speak to one of our clinical team at any stage please call us on 06-356-6606 and we can assist with making a decision as to whether it is safe to visit your family member.
As per previous communications, all visitors must use hand sanitiser on entry and departure.
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.
