Greeter Program Information
We are expanding the new Greeter Program across all PHC sites commencing on Monday, March 16th. The Greeter Program will ensure that all patients, residents, family members, and visitors, as well as staff and volunteers are reminded to sanitize their hands before entering a hospital and/or long-term care site. Greeters will also remind visitors to not enter the premises if they are unwell and that visiting should be family members only. The Greeter Program will be at all PHC sites, including:
- St. Paul’s Hospital
- Mount Saint Joseph’s Hospital
- Holy Family
- Honoria Conway
- Brock Fahrni
This initiative will help keep our patients, residents, volunteers, and staff safe and help prevent the spread of viruses. Please stay tuned for further communications on this new initiative as well as its detailed schedule for each site.
Sign-up to be a greeter
We are still looking for greeters for this new program. Currently, numerous shifts are available over the coming weeks. If you would like to be a greeter, please email the Quality Performance & Improvement Team at PHCclinicalnonclinicalcovid19@providencehealth.bc.ca and provide your name, your preferred location, available date(s), time, and shifts that you are able to cover.
This is a great opportunity for each of us to do meaningful and very important work in reducing the spread of the virus. Thank you for considering this request and your support during this time.
