At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, most hospitals in Canada adopted no-visitor policies because of concern that visitors would spread the virus. It was also a way of preserving personal protective equipment, which was in short supply at the time. Now, almost one year later, the authors of a commentary published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal argue that it’s time to reconsider such a strict policy. In this podcast, Dr. Andreas Laupacis, editor-in-chief of CMAJ, interviews one of the authors of the commentary, Dr. Fahad Razak, a general internist at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. Also joining the conversation are Lee Fairclough, president of St. Mary’s General Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario, and Corinna Riquelme who is a care partner and a member of the Patient and Family Advisory Council at St. Mary’s.
