Visitor Booking System
From 15th June 2020, a phased re-introduction of visiting residents in Nursing Homes will be permitted in accordance with the guidance from the National Public Health Emergency Team. Each resident may have 2 registered visitors over the age of 16. At this time, only one of these 2 registered persons may visit alone for a period not exceeding 30 minutes (it is not possible to rotate these 2 persons from week to week, so families must carefully consider which 2 persons will be assigned as the designated visitors whilst these regulations remain in place). Visits will take place in a specially constructed marquee located in the nursing home courtyard and must be supervised by a staff member to ensure hand hygiene, PPE usage and social distancing is maintained by all visitors. Visits are only permitted during office hours when peak staffing numbers are available to ensure compliance with all the requirements advised by NPHET.
You can book a visiting slot using the calendar below.
Visiting Appointments may be cancelled if:
> Resident requests not to have a visit
> More than 2 persons register to visit
> A resident receives a booking for more than 2 visits in any one week
Visitors will not be allowed to enter/will be asked to leave if:
> Their symptom screening and temperature check indicate that visiting is unsafe to proceed
> The visitor refuses to adhere to infection control guidance such as hand washing, PPE usage or social distancing
> The visitor has been referred to testing, tested and awaiting results or has received a positive Covid-19 result in the previous 14 day period.
On the day of your visit
Do not attend for your visit if you have symptoms of Covid-19 such as cough, fever, chills, muscle aches and pains, headaches, loss of sense of smell or taste, diarrhoea, vomiting or any other flu-like symptom.
On arrival, park as normal and phone 01-2118359
Proceed to the gate at the rear of the nursing home leading to the courtyard garden where a staff member will meet you.
You will be assisted to sanitise your hands and be provided with a disposable surgical face mask.
A staff member will ask you a series of questions to confirm you have no symptoms of Covid-19, have not recently had contact with a known or suspected case of Covid-19 and ensure there is no risk to the visit proceeding.
You will be seated in a designated area in the marquee with your relative and the visit will commence.
We ask you to minimise physical contact as much as possible to protect your loved one throughout the visit.
Out of consideration we ask you to conclude your visit promptly when the end of the time is approaching so that the next visitor can be accomodated without delay.
