Visitation Policy

It is the policy of Bay Oaks Historic Retirement Residence that residents may
designate anyone as a welcome visitor.
Residents’ guests may visit by invitation of a resident or by making an
Visits may take place anytime a resident wishes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Resident guests are asked to sign a Visitor Log in Reception upon arrival.

Visitors are asked to follow basic infection control hygiene practices and given the
opportunity to wash and/or sanitize their hands. Masks are encouraged, but not
required, and are available upon request.
We request that guests participate in a brief infection control screening which
involves advising the concierge and resident host if they have had any recent signs
or symptoms of contagious infections or viruses. If guests have reason to believe
they may be carrying a contagious illness, Bay Oaks suggests that, if possible, they
delay their visit and offers to facilitate visits via video in the interim.

Visitors are not compelled to show or provide proof of vaccination or immunization status.
Residents and their guests are encouraged to avail themselves of the extensive
gardens and outdoor seating venues, and they may meet in any private space of the
resident’s choosing.
It is our policy to comply fully with the “No Patient Left Alone Act” (Act) and our
visitation policy does not limit visitation hours, duration, or number of visitors.
Residents may receive guests regardless of immunization status and may have
consensual physical contact with them. In-person visitation is encouraged anytime
the resident requests it, and particularly in end-of-life situations, difficult or
stressful periods, at times requiring health decisions or medical assistance, and/or
in the case of a recent change in behavior.

The Administrator is responsible for staff adherence to these visitation policies and procedures.
