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 and social distancing rules as follows:
Please avoid bringing children under 16 years of age to the hospital.
For infection control reasons it is very important that all visitors wash their hands before entering and after leaving a patient's bedside area. Visitors should not sit on the patient's bed. Chairs are provided for visitors.
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.
Our visiting hours vary from ward to ward but are generally:
Outside of these hours, please check with the nursing staff.
