To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect you, our patients and our staff, we are limiting the number of visitors to our hospital.
We ask that patients and visitors follow visiting restrictions as follows:
More than two visitors will continue to be allowed to provide end-of-life support to a patient, and additional exemptions may be granted. Please phone the ward if you require special consideration.
If you are unsure, please check with a staff member in the ward or service.
Additional restrictions may apply for some wards. These include:
While visiting your loved ones in hospital, you are required to practice social distancing rules implemented by the Queensland Government.
Facilities in Metro South Health follow directions about visiting from the Prime Minister and the Chief Health Officer. Sometimes visitors need to be restricted further to ensure patients and residents are safe.
It is important to protect our patients or residents from other illnesses including influenza or other non-COVID respiratory viruses.
At these times, our staff work with patients, residents and family members so everyone knows how they can help keep patients safe.
