We are restricting all visitor access, except under special circumstances (to be approved by the Nurse Unit Manager or Director of Nursing). Patients with special needs (including children) will be permitted a support person. All support persons must sign in and out of the Hospital each day. Please do not come to the Hospital if you have any acute respiratory symptoms (runny nose, sore throat, cough) or fever and/or have been to a COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days.
Patients can now have a maximum of 2 visitors at any one time. This means a patient can have more than 2 visitors a day, however only 2 at any one time.
General Visiting Hours: 10.30am - 8.00pm
Maternity Visiting: 3.00pm - 4.30pm & 6:30pm - 8:00pm - Patients may have up to two visitors + any of their children. Partners can visit at all hours.
Please note: visitors must leave the room during any clinical procedure/review by a nurse, doctor or allied health staff.
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.
