Families and carers are welcome to visit their loved ones in hospital or one of our Residential Aged Care facilities to provide essential care and support.
For the safety and wellbeing of other patients, residents, the community, and staff, we ask that people do not visit if they have COVID-19, are a household contact with someone with COVID-19, or are displaying symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, and headache.
Before entering one of our Aged Care facilities:
- All visitors over 18 must complete and provide a negative Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) result and wear a surgical mask. RATs, instructions, and masks are available at the hospital entrance.
- All visitors must complete an “attestation” and complete the visitor log.
- Negative RAT results must be presented to Reception or the Nurse in Charge.
Aged Care visiting hours:
- There are no restrictions on visiting hours although visitors should limit their movement around
Hospital visiting hours:
- Visiting hours have returned to normal 10am-8pm.
- Before entering the hospital, visitors will be required to don a surgical mask.
- Patients are allowed a maximum of two visitors per person at any
one time. There is no limit on the number of visitors during visiting hours.
- Visitors must stay in the patient’s room and limit movement around
- Palliative and compassionate visits remain exempt from the Visiting Hours and limits. Please discuss arrangements with staff.
If you would like more information, please get in touch with the Nurse in Charge at the facility.
