Visiting Hours and Patient Rest Periods

The love and support of family and friends is important to the recuperation of our patients and the best way to do this is by visiting your friend or loved one. In doing so, we kindly ask for you to consider the recovery of other patients and visit during the following hours:

General 

10am to 8pm

Relatives may stay with critically ill patients for extended periods.
Parents may also stay with their children as required.

Rehabilitation

3pm to 8pm Monday – Friday

10am to 8pm Weekends

Palliative Care

Visits are unrestricted, unless patients are receiving medical or nursing care.

 

In the best interests of our patients, visiting times may vary and are at the discretion of the nursing staff on duty. If you would like to check if visitation is appropriate or if you are unable to visit during the above times, please contact the patient’s nurse by phoning 02 6627 9600.

Children under 12 years of age must be supervised by an adult at all times.

To assist with the reduced risk of transferring infections all visitors are strongly urged to:

  • wash their hands before and after their visit,
  • delay your visit to the Hospital if you have:
    • flu-like symptoms,
    • are suffering from an active infection, and/or
    • have recently been in contact with someone who has an infection or has been exposed to infection.
