Visiting Hours - Open Family Presence

Home / Programs and Services / Visitors / Visiting Hours - Open Family Presence

The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region (RQHR) is joining all other health regions across the province in supporting families as equal partners in their loved one’s care, and has approved an Open Family Presence Policy for all RQHR facilities beginning in 2016-17.

The Open Family Presence Policy supports family presence by eliminating visiting restrictions. Once the policy has been implemented in all areas, family will be welcome in our facilities 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

The move to eliminate designated visiting hours for family members reflects the provincial direction to create a patient- and family-centred environment within our facilities.

Best practice shows that patients, residents and clients who are supported by families and friends have better mental and emotional health, which helps them recover and manage their illnesses.
 
During this time of transition, please speak with staff on the unit you plan to visit about whether open family presence has been implemented.
