Covid 19

Nothing is more important to us than your health.

 

At the present time we are working remotely except for one day a week when we are seeing our prenatal patients in the office.

We may see you in person if you are close to your due date or we may have a virtual appointment. The administrative assistant will contact you to let you know if the appointment will by on site or virtual after Dr. Vassiliou has reviewed your situation. The aim is to protect you and health care workers from contracting Covid 19.

We ask that you arrive on time and that you are NOT accompanied. If you have symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat, runny nose, general malaise, please do not enter our office and give us a call instead where we will instruct you what to do. You must wear a mask to enter our office. The mask can be made of fabric and cover the mouth and nose. Also do not come to our office if you have been out of the country 14 days prior to your appointment.

Do not hesitate to leave a message. We will be returning all phone calls daily, virtual appointments can be set up with Dr. Vassiliou if needed.

Please read the Visitor Policy from The Ottawa Hospital updated April 22, 2020 however what is not in the policy and has been updated June 5, 2020 is that partners can now be in the operating room.

Please note starting March 31, 2020 due to Covid 19 epidemic WinRho for RH negative patients needs to be picked up at the Riverside Campus. Go to the main entrance and then follow the signs to LABORATORY, we will either fax the requisition from our office to the laboratory or we will give it to you to bring. WinRho must then be brought to the office for administration.

Also  in an effort to reduce the number of visits patients need to make to the hospital, please be advised that pre-registration for expectant mothers can be done over the phone during this time. At this time, priority will be given to those WHO ARE DUE WITHIN THE NEXT 2-3 MONTHS  (MARCH-JUNE).  For those who are at an earlier gestation,  defer until you are over 32 weeks gestation.     

 You can call the Admitting department Monday to Friday  0800-1600hr.
