The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an abrupt shift in the way care is delivered in cardiovascular intensive care units (CICUs). One example of this drastic change has been the limitations placed on family visitation. In many hospitals across Canada and beyond, a strict "no visitor" policy has been implemented. Governments and hospital administrators have instituted this policy to prevent the spread of infection and preserve protective equipment. However, physical distancing may lead to social isolation and emotional distress for both patients and their families.
