Visiting hours

The presence of friends and family is key to the healing process.  In special circumstances our visiting times may be flexible. Should the need arise to visit outside normal visiting hours please discuss this with the nursing staff.

Note: for infection control reasons, potted plants are not permitted in patient rooms.
Due to space limitations and infection control policies, we are unable to have flowers in the Intensive Care Unit.

General wards

10:30am to 1:00pm  &   3:00pm to 8:00pm.

Maternity

3:00pm to 4:30pm   &   6:30pm to 8:00pm.
Maternity rest period is from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.  No visitors or calls are allowed during the rest period.

Intensive Care   

10:30am to 8:00pm.

We ask that immediate family only visit with a limit of two visitors at a time.

The use of invasive equipment can sometimes cause concern for visitors, as many patients are treated with mechanical devices and instruments. Although such treatments are routine for many conditions, family members may find the sight of their loved one overwhelming at first. Other concerns may include worries about pain control, sleep deprivation and adequate nutrition. Rest assured we are aware of these and other potential problems and have systems in place to minimise any unnecessary disruptions to patients.

For infection control reasons we ask you to wash your hands when you enter and leave the Intensive Care Unit.
