Thank you for your patience and understanding during the period of level 5 restrictions.
The following visiting protocol has been put in place from June 1st. The protocols set out the process for visiting patients from five days after admission. Please note that from days 0 to 5 post-admission visiting will be allowed for compassionate reasons only in the best interests of all of our patients. All such visits must be arranged in advance with the ward.
For patients who appear to be imminently approaching end of life or in critical or compassionate circumstances a more individual approach to visiting may be taken as determined by management, the senior nursing and medical team.
From June 1st, in line with national guidelines we aim to facilitate up to four visits per week for each resident in the Service for Older People.
Please note that all visits must be scheduled with the ward
To reduce the level of footfall on any given day visits will be spread out over 4 days with a limited number of visits allowed per day as follows:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
between the times of 14.30-17.00
For residents who appear to be imminently approaching end of life a more individual approach to visiting will be taken as determined by senior nursing and medical team members.
International visitors to Ireland who are not subject to mandatory hotel quarantine must still restrict their movement for 14 days and may not visit Marymount during that time. Exceptions may be made if there are pressing critical or compassionate circumstances as determined by the senior nursing and medical team. As per national guidance international visitors can end their period of quarantine earlier if they receive written confirmation of a negative or ‘not detected’ PCR test result taken no less than 5 days after arrival. The visitor must retain the written confirmation of this test result for at least 14 days
The above measures will be reviewed weekly taking into consideration the levels of Covid circulating in the community. We thank you for your continuing support during the pandemic.
The following procedure will apply for each visit:
Please do not visit Marymount if you or a member of your family is feeling unwell
If you have any questions on any element of the above please get in touch with the relevant ward/nurse manager.
