Hospitals Visiting Policy

Whilst we recognise that friends and family members are a vital support, the utmost care and consideration must be given to the safety of other patients, visitors and staff by maintaining infection prevention and control procedures at all times. However due to the current level of community spread of Covid-19 within the Isle of Man, both Noble’s and Ramsey and District Cottage Hospitals have increased visiting precautions in order to protect vulnerable patients receiving treatment.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation over recent months as we have worked to protect the vulnerable people in our care from potential exposure to COVID–19. We do need to remain vigilant and will continue to consider who can and cannot visit our hospitals as per the attached Visitor Registration form.

Older Peoples Services

Whilst it is recognised that friends and family members are a vital support, the utmost care and consideration must be given to the safety of residents, visitors and staff by maintaining infection prevention and control procedures at all times.

Due to the current levels of community spread of Covid 19, with effect from 17:00 on Tuesday 28 July 2021, all Manx Care older peoples residential settings (Cummal Mooar, Reayrt Ny Baie, Southlands and Dementia Units, Gansey, Langness, Ryeart Skyal Sweetbriar and Thie Meneagh) will be closed for a period of ten days. That means no visitors unless essential or in exceptional circumstances, e.g. end of life. Residents will not be supported to leave the home for that period of ten days.

Manx Care has taken this difficult decision in order to protect vulnerable residents and maintain safe staffing levels at all times.

If you are a permitted visitor i.e. essential or in exceptional circumstances, you must adhere to the following Covid protocols when entering a Manx Care residential home or unit:

Guidance for risk mitigation, for essential visits by relatives to care home residents within ten days of arrival on the Isle of Man:

  • The care home manager MUST agree, either by written or verbal correspondence, that the visit to the Care Home is essential or exceptional, e.g. due to compassionate reasons (e.g. end of life, best interest).
  • In the care home manager’s, absence this may be delegated to the person in charge.
  • Undertake a risk assessment tailored to each individual visit.
  • The care home manager/person in charge must be informed about which pathway the visitor is on:
    • Pathway 1 – no COVID swab required
    • Pathway 2 and 3 – negative COVID swab result required before entry and the visitor must follow IOM Government’s COVID 19 guidance
  • CHARRT to be informed of the proposed visit
  • Entrance to the care home will not be permitted without approved confirmation from the care home manager. This is to include:
    • Time and day of visit
    • Length of visit
    • Frequency of visit
    • Instructions on how to gain access to the care home – they must be accompanied by a staff member.

Procedure on arrival and during the visit to the care home

  • The relative must be met at the nearest door to the designated area by a member of the care home staff
  • The relative must be given an IIR facemask to wear (explain and demonstrate how to use) and the visitor(s) temperature taken before entering the care home
  • The relative must complete the visitor COVID-19 questionnaire
  • The relative will then be escorted to the designated visiting area by the staff member (also wearing an IIR mask)
  • Ensure that the passage way is clear from service users.

Visitors who are sick or showing any symptoms relating to COVID-19 will not be permitted to enter any Manx Care residential home or unit; this is without exception.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation over recent months as we have worked to protect the vulnerable people in our care from potential exposure to COVID–19. We do need to remain vigilant and consider the health and wellbeing of everyone living and working in and visiting Manx Care settings.
