Cell phones and other wireless technology

Patients and visitors may use cell phones or other wireless technology in any area of the hospital where direct patient care is not being provided such as lobbies, cafeteria and closed private offices. In areas where patient care is being provided, cell phones must be turned off at all times.

Signs indicating where cell phones and other wireless technology can and cannot be used are posted throughout our facility.

Anyone using a cell phone is asked to please be considerate of others and to respect others’ privacy, safety and dignity.

Use of Masks

Effective May 23rd, 2023, masks are recommended but are no longer mandatory in non-clinical public such as hallways, elevators, stairwells, the cafeteria, the Sunshine Gift Shop and the Mural Café, as well as common areas that are located outdoors. This change applied to staff, physicians, patients and visitors.


While masking in these areas is no longer mandatory, masks will remain easily accessible for anyone who wishes to wear one.


Masking remains mandatory in all clinical areas and waiting areas / waiting rooms at PRH. This means that anyone entering these spaces must put on a medical grade mask at the point of entry, and wear it at all times while in those locations.


All patients who are able to do so, must wear a mask in waiting areas / waiting rooms, attending outpatient appointments and as indicated on the clinical units.


As a reminder, everyone is asked to stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of illness, unless they need to receive care.

Thank you for helping us keep everyone in the hospital safe!



Please encourage your family and friends to visit you only when they are feeling well. When you are in the hospital and not well yourself you will be at greater risk if germs are brought in and spread throughout the hospital. If family and friends have a fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, diarrhea, new rash or are otherwise ill, please ask them to not visit you until they are well.


Hand Hygiene

Please use the Alcohol Based Hand Rub (ABHR) dispensers found throughout the hospital, specifically located at all entry/exit points, elevators and patient rooms. Hand hygiene by all staff, patients and visitors is the best way of limiting the spread of germs, even if you are feeling well.


Family and visitors are requested to please perform hand hygiene when entering the hospital and when having direct contact with you such as in assisting with your care. When leaving the building it is important to clean hands before heading home to their own environment to avoid carrying germs with them.


Washing your hands and asking your healthcare providers and visitors to wash theirs and observing them do so is the best way to prevent the spread of germs.
