Covid 19 Status Update for Outpatients/Daycase/Inpatient Visiting

 
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

General visiting is permitted from 6pm-8pm daily. Only one visitor is allowed at a time per patient in multi-occupancy rooms. We ask that you limit the time spent with your relative or friend to 30 minutes.
Visiting on compassionate grounds and for particular patient care needs outside of these times is facilitated through the ward manager.
Visitors are required to wear a face mask at all times while in the hospital and to perform hand hygiene using the alcohol gel provided.
Do NOT visit the hospital if you are unwell with any symptoms that could be contagious such as a cough, runny nose, rash, vomiting or diarrhoea.
The hospital acknowledges that visiting restrictions are difficult for patients, their family, and friends but these measures when required are in place to protect patients, visitors, and staff and to ensure that the hospital can continue to provide vital services for all patients
 

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

 
No visiting during ICU rest period of 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm.
 
Visitors may be requested to leave the unit during procedures.  Generally, no more than two persons should visit a patient at any one time due to space constraints.
 
It may be appropriate for children to visit a patient in ICU; however, this must be discussed with the clinical nurse manager in the unit.  Babies under one year are Not Permitted.
 

Children’s Ward

The general ward visiting policy applies to the children’s ward.
 
Parents / guardians are welcome to visit from 8:30 am – 9 pm daily and one parent / guardian is encouraged to stay overnight with their child.
 
We welcome the siblings of our patients; however, children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
 
It is not advisable for children under 3 months to visit the ward.
 
Visiting for children nursed in isolation is restricted to a minimum and it is inadvisable for children under 3 months to visit.
 
You may discuss any of the above with the nurse manager on duty who has the authority to alter arrangements for very specific cases.
