As the Covid-19 alert level continues to be high in our region and in response to an increase in staff absence, Lindsey Lodge has reviewed its visiting restrictions, in order to protect its workforce from possible exposure to the virus and ensure it is able to continue providing a fully-functioning Inpatient Service.
As of 7th December 2020 we will only be admitting two designated visitors to symptom management patients between 2pm and 4pm.
Visitors for end of life patients are permitted, but only two visitors at once are permitted in the patient’s room.
We are assured that we have good stocks of the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and our practice in this area was recently assessed as good by North Lincolnshire CCG.
Our priority is always to ensure the safety of our staff and patients and maintaining our Inpatient Service. We therefore ask for your understanding at this time. We will continue to review and revise these restrictions over the coming weeks.
