Important information on COVID-19 / Renseignements importants sur la COVID-19!

We are asking all patients and visitors coming to HSN to please wear a mask as an added step to reduce the spread of germs and protect vulnerable patients. Handmade masks are acceptable as are those available at retailers in our community. Patients going for a procedure where they must remove their mask will be asked to store it with their personal items. If you arrive at the hospital as a patient or care partner and do not have a mask, one will be provided to you and you will be expected to wear it during your time at HSN to keep yourself, other patients and care partners and our staff, physicians, learners and volunteers safe.

Before coming to the hospital, please check our COVID-19 info page for updates.

    Family Centered Care Rounds

    Family Centered Care is about keeping the patient and caregiver(s) central in decision-making. Advantages for families include:

    • Family is the focus
    • Parents and Caregivers have the opportunity to advocate for their child
    • Parents and Caregivers have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers
    • Explain what to expect at home, answer questions
    • Better collaboration between the family, the patient, nursing, and physicians 

    Visitor Policy

    Both the Pediatric Unit and NICU are locked units with a “buzzer” system for entry.  Guests will be asked to identify themselves and who they will be visiting prior to entering the unit.
