The New Zealand Government has currently retired the Protective Framework (traffic light system).
Nelson Tasman Hospice (NTH) has responded with updated visitor guidelines intended to keep our patients, their families, and our colleagues and volunteers safe. These visitor guidelines apply to all patients admitted to the SPCU (Specialist Palliative Care Unit) and their visitors. We also ask that you fill out the Visitor Screening form on page two of the document, if you do plan on visiting the SPCU.
As you may know, most of the care we deliver is in the community with over 200 people receiving care at their homes at any time. Home visits are still being made as usual.
If you require any other information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can also find helpful links below, relating to the Covid-19 pandemic.
