Infection Control

To prevent the spread of infectious disease, we have specific procedures to care for pregnant women who are suffering from an infectious illness, such as respiratory infection, tuberculosis, German measles, chicken pox, or skin infection.

If you have an infectious illness when you are admitted to BC Women's, be sure to tell the nurse who admits you. You may meet with an Infection Control Practitioner to discuss your care.

Visitors suffering from an infectious disease must not visit patients in the hospital.
