Welcome to RVH
Effective Monday, August 9, RVH will be implementing a number of improvements to our visitor and outpatient active screening.
- New visitor and outpatient screening app available on the RVH website, or scan the QR code with your smartphone camera at each visitor/patient entrance door: ER (Entrance A), Dialysis (Entrance E), Ambulatory Care (Entrance B).
- Screening stations are located at Dialysis and Admitting/Switchboard with self-screening kiosks available for those who have not screened prior to arrival at RVH.
- After screening, patients and visitors will receive a date-stamped sticker.

RVH provides patient- and family-centred care to all our patients. Family members of patients are an important part of the healthcare team and contribute to the caring and healing process. RVH acknowledges that support, in the form of visits from friends and family, is important to patients during their hospital stay and help to reduce anxiety and isolation and to improve healing and recovery. Guidelines are applicable to all areas of the hospital.
Please do not visit if you feel unwell in any way, and especially if you have a cough, fever, respiratory infection or diarrhea. Do not visit if you have come into contact with anyone who has an infectious disease. In the case of outbreaks or other unforeseen situations, visiting hours may need to be restricted. If this happens, we will inform local media and post the information via our website/social media.
